In my opinion, this fairing looks much better on this bike than the Memphis Shades fairing. The shape matches the headlight perfectly and even has a ridge, like the headlight. Almost gives it a factory look. The stereo is a little crazy looking with all those speakers but it'll make long rides much more enjoyable. I've only ridden with it about 20 miles so far, but it sure does block the wind. I feel no wind on my chest, with just a little buffeting at my helmet. Much warmer on a 27* morning as well, without cold air hitting my hands and chest and neck directly!
These saddlebags are cheap, but if you want something that bolts right on and matches the contour of the bike, search Saddleline bags on ebay. I need to cut/weld the brackets or heat them up and bend them so they don't stick out like they do now. I hate it but everyone that sees it thinks they look fine.
Yeah, I did the upgraded stereo and speakers and it was $950 to my door. The stereo is bluetooth with pandora capabilities, so all I need to do is leave my phone on bluetooth in my pocket and the stereo will sync and start pandora. Pretty sweet!
They seem like a good company to work with... good customer service and quick to get stuff out the door.
Excellent investment in an already good bike. I like how they use the stock Victory brackets to mount their faring so a person can easily go to a stock windshield if they so desired although I'm not sure why someone would want to. Maybe for looks or something...
Both bags and fairing look like really great additions to your bike. I agree, great lines on both of them... Nice bike!
2012 Cross Country--trunk at times, stereo/amp upgrade, Madstad Windshield bracket, old-man style heated seat/grips, RPW Exhaust/Lloydz ATS and filter, PCV/AT, Cycleops Cheese, side covers and primary insert, soft lowers, a bit of chrome...

This was also a big plus for me. Their brackets are slotted so you can move the fairing quite a bit up and down. I took the option (with instructions they provided) to lower my speedo and tach 3/4" to lay the fairing down a little more. Also sanded and painted their bracket and my fork brackets gloss black to match everything else...
lol... those were to hold the gas tank up. When I lifted the tank to run the power wires for the stereo, I broke the quick disconnect fuel line fitting and just zip tied the tank up so it didn't fall off while I was running wires and waiting for the new part to come in.
dude that is crazy sweet. Im looking to put a fairing and hard bags on my 2011 Vegas. How bad was the wiring? Im not the greatest @ wiring but I can do the basics. Was it simply runing power wires from the stereo to the battery or did you run it through a fuse block?
