Default I Made A Change !!

On Aug 31st I traded my 2010 XC for a new 2015 XCT, Pearl White and Gray two tone. I had been very happy with the 2010 and had no plans on making that move. The 2010 XC had 54,000+ on it and happy miles they were. But the dealer gave me a deal that was to hard to pass on and my wife(Great Women!!!) gave her blessing. I was able to take off some of the extra's I had on the 2010 so I was happy. Last week I reinstalled the extra tail lighting, Ultimate seat, driving lights and other small items I had. Just waiting for my 2" pullback bars to arrive. I have 420 miles on the new bike, need a few more and I'll get the 500 mile service and bars installed. Need to get cruiser pegs, probably go with the Kuryakyn offset's. And the Kuryakyn Sabertooth lights also. (Xmas is close by!!) This morning I was cleaning up some wires from the front driving light install and I noticed that the fork lock had an opening for a key. Tried it and I have an operational fork lock. I was under the impression that this was only put on some of the export bikes. So maybe I got a "freebie". Has anyone else noticed that if they have the fork lock on their 2015 XCT?

2015 XCT Two Tone White/Gray
Ultimate Seat & Backrest
Custom Dynamics Non-Sequential License Plate Frame
Hyper-Lites
Kuryakyn #4178 Windshield Bag
Victory Bag Guards
Custom Dynamic Cool Magic Bullet LED Running Lights
+2" Back Bars
Victory Highway Pegs #2874837 & Z-Bracket
Kuryakyn Sabertooth LED's

Traded for a 2015 Cross Country Tour on 8-31-15
Previous bike was a 2010 Victory Cross Country-Midnight Cherry, had 54,xxx+ trouble free miles. Just needed a change & got a great deal.

You lucky dog....
Have you noticed any "heat differences" between the XC and XCT, especially runing around down there in Florida?

Yes. The 2010xc had a 11 inch 7jurock shield with oversized Victory lowers. More airflow and seemed to be cooler. The 2015 XCT I've been on 2 runs in 90 to 98 degree temps, still playing with the best position to get the most airflow. Seems that full open on the bottom is the way to go. Not sure on the fairing winglets at this point.

I have my fairing winglets angled so the wind hits me just inside the thigh to push out the heat from the rear jug! it also helps keep the "boys" a little dryer.

I'll try that on the winglets. How do you have your lowers set?

My 03 has a fork lock, I figured all vics did. Why would they stop putting them on? It won't prevent theft or someone moving the bike but it adds a small amount of peace of mind

Congrats on the new ride.
I couldn't afford to do that on my Vision. My accessories could easily be moved to a new bike because I still have the OEM stuff but no way could I get my Vic Shop stuff to the new bike without serious expense and a new dyno. Some day I could be tempted to make the move I suppose but this bike is paid for and so are my mods. A new bike would mean all new expenses.

Present ride - 2013 Victory Vision, black, ATW at +3, Lloydz air filter and adjustable intake, PC5, 30,xxx miles
