Default Hello

Hey I'm obviously new to the forum and I've had my eye on a new bike for some time. I'm a former Harley owner and have really gotten interested in Victory motorcycles. I felt this would be a good place to check them out and see what's out there.

. I'm still trying to decide that. I'd like something with bags like the Cross Country but the High Ball looks pretty amazing. Still on the fence which one I want to go after.

I actually wouldn't mind having a fairing. I like the idea of having some music and anything to cut some of the wind is pretty good too.

Cross Country or Magnum would suit you just fine...or go ahead and get the "old man" bike like I did with the Cross Country Tour

Best bet is to ride both and figure out what you want out of a bike. If you only want to ride short trips and don't get stuck picking $h!t up on your way home the highball would be fun. If you want to do trips or will probably get stuck hauling $h!t the Cross Country would be a better option.
