Default New Mmber

Hi all, Neal Flora here
Just bought two new Vics, 2012 Vegas and 2012 Cross Roads.
Both have the Stage 1 kit, both lowered (at least some). Just got seats back from the A$$-man here in Naples and now both of us sit flat-footed.

Was a Harley guy (have an old 76 Shovel FXE that I rebuilt from the ground up) but when looking for some new bikes for myself and my wife was taken aback with sticker shock on the HD. A friend said "go ride a Victory and you will not go back to HD" and he was right!

Looking forward to some info on moving the forward controls back a bit on both bikes, just as soon as I figure out how to Post!

Congrats on the Vegas and XR, and welcome aboard!

You will be able to post everywhere else once you get 2 posts under your belt (you're half way there). You need one more in this forum to become a full fledged member.

Please add your bike's year and model to your signature. Here's why.

Blest with victory and peace, may the heav'n rescued land
Praise the Power that hath made and preserved us a nation.
Then conquer we must, when our cause it is just,
And this be our motto: "In God is our trust."
And the star-spangled banner in triumph shall wave
O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave!

Not sure what to post? I assume there is some mechanism to ensure I am real before I allowed "full" posting.

From what I understand (from friends and others), the Vics are 100% more reliable than the HD's.
Bringing my Cross Roads home on 75 (main highway in So. Florida) I was impressed. As was noted in many places, shifting is a bit "Clanky" but handling was great. Have a windshield but no faring yet. Looking into some aftermarket offerings. I was a bit surprised there are not more aftermarket goodies available. (well at least that I could find)

ta-ta for now
