Default I got it, I got it!

Just got off my Red 2012 Cross Country Tourer! Easiest 90 miles I've ever put in. So far I can say "WOW" what a great ride. Looking forward to some many miles. I'll try to post some pictures this weekend.

Blest with victory and peace, may the heav'n rescued land
Praise the Power that hath made and preserved us a nation.
Then conquer we must, when our cause it is just,
And this be our motto: "In God is our trust."
And the star-spangled banner in triumph shall wave
O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave!

Thanks for the well wishes. I picked up the bike after work at 6 pm. I've got 120 miles on it so far. Stupid Work keeps thinking that I should be there instead of out on the open road. Unreasonable Ba*****s!

Coming from my Honda 1300C I really don't have the accessory bug. This bike has everything that I would be adding to it. I just have to get a good GPS and get it mounted. Then I'm ready for my Pacific Coast Trip this fall.

Oh, where do you add or remove the pressure for the suspension? I haven't found it yet.

Of course it's probably hard to find it while you're sitting in the saddle.

Congrats on your new bike. I also came from a VTX 1300C and yes these bikes are super loaded compared to our VTXs regardless of how much we personalized them LOL

You rear shock air valve is under the right side cover. DON'T use a compresser to fill or adjust, get a bicycle pump.

Also in your right saddlebag there is a small chart showing recommended air pressure and different weight levels.
