Default A funny thing happened this last Saturday...

After doing extensive research, reading, test-driving, speaking to current and former owners to determine the Harley that I would buy to fulfill a childhood dream of owning one...

I bought a brand spanking new Cross Country!

It seriously only took me going to a dealership and trying out a Vegas 8 Ball to come to the conclusion I had been looking at the wrong MoCo!

And even though it's been in the 40's here in chilly Maine, I had to have the 500 mile service done yesterday!

Let the customizing begin!

This goes to prove that you are a man of great wisdom, intellect, and just plain smart. I hope you passed on the extended warranty, cuz you will not need it--Vics are THAT dependable. Gorgeous bike too! And now, let the mods begin.

LOL Thanks!

No... I didn't bother with the extended warranty. The standard 1 year and 1 year extended was more than enough.

I plan on going with Big Honkers, Power Commander and LLOYDZ breather.

Although, I did hear a sound bite tonight of some V&H slip-ons that sounded pretty good!

You will be sadly remiss if you pass on the Lloydz adjustable timing wheel. So good, that if you do only ony one mod, that should be the one.

I ride a Road King and am happily enjoying trouble free miles with it but every time I see a XC, I wonder if I made a mistake?

Don't look back the XC is a gorgeous bike and you'll log many trouble free miles on her.....The bike looks to fit you well; Congrats and welcome from Alberta.
