Default What kind of miles on your bike?

What kind of miles do you have on your victory? Have you had any issues with the bike?

Especially those with 20,000 + I would like to hear from, though anyone can reply, Thanks.

Bout 2600 for me but I've only had it a couple months.

No problems yet other than burning my hand changing the oil.

What do I ride? I have owned Harleys for the last 27 years and am thinking of something different. I have put many miles on them and am checking out other brands durability as I tend to put 30,000 + on some bikes and know that the harleys will run many more than that. I have ridden across the Country a couple of times on a 1987 Softail with Tijuana leather bags.

I like to tour with my bikes and I do not want issues when miles get up there, that is why I am asking for information. The Victory's are comfortable and I like the ride, but have only taken a couple 10 mile demo rides, so it's hard to guage.

I just sold 2011 Road King a little over a month ago and have been looking at all brands. Right now, I have my Kawasaki KLR to buzz around on.

So that is why I have so many questions and where I am coming from as I do not know the brand well and am looking for experiences and knowledge above my demo rides.

Thanks

I put 17,000 miles on my 2011 Cross Country in about a year and half doing some touring and alot of around town riding. Being only the second year of the model I was kinda skeptical too, but knowing Vic history, I figured it would be just fine. I do oil filter changes every 2500 miles and oil change at about 5000 miles, did all the other services by the book miles and never had any problems with it. I did replace a battery that went uncharged for about a month last year, but I did a deep cycle charge on it and it works fine now. Im trying to sell the brand new one now!

All in all I am very pleased with the bike. ready for many more miles on the new and improved 'XR1750'
