Default Hello............anybody there????????

As requested, this is my first post on the forum. While not new to riding, am new to Victory. My first ride on a bike was in 1953 perched on the saddle, in front of my cousin Bill. It was on the brand new, chartreuse green Hydra Glide he bought upon returning from Korea. That was it, I was in love with motorsickles.

My first scoot was a 1947 Knucklehead I bought while I was still in high school. Bought it for $200 and sold it a year and a half later when my grades slipped and mom told dad to tell me it had to go. Got $250 for it, so it wasn't all bad. Have ridden my own or others scoots off and on ever since. After a long hiatus from riding I got back on the road with a used Sporty in '03. In '06 I treated myself for a 'highpoint' birthday with a brand new HD Deluxe which I promptly retro'd out to look as much as possible like my cousin's Hydra Glide.

After 57,000 miles on the Deluxe (which included several long distance trips including Eureka Springs three times, SanAntonio last year and Sturgis this year) I decided it was time for something a little more suited to touring. I narrowed it down to one of three: a Street Glide, a Chieftain or a Cross Country.

And.............the winner is............2014 Cross Country

Hey! One of the 'usual suspects'.

Was wondering if/when I'd run it to you.
