Default Content new Victory XC owner in Australia

Great to stumble across this forum, hope to learn plenty about the brand, querks, trials or tribulations with them, any info would be appreciated.
Had 34yrs with HDs, a string of old Triumphs before that in teens, last tourer before the XC was a Triumph Touring. Like restoring old iron that has one foot in the grave and I have a couple of old bikes on loan in a motorcycle museum.
List of bikes have/still own here - http://www.pitbossracing.com.au/pimp.htm
Look fwd getting to hear about others adventures here.
Cheers, Blackey.


From 34yrs of HDs to 2010 Cross Country (+ few other bikes)

That's a load of nice bikes. Congrats on the XC and welcome aboard!

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!

Cheers mate.
I'll bet you're enjoying your xc as much as I am.
The only problem (not factory) is the free guard dawg imobilser, having them remove it next week, left me starnded a few times now(tow trucks are expensive) a real pain in the neck, other than that, brilliant bike.

You might be able to sell the system to one of the forum members. We've had a long thread here, where various members expressed their desire to get a guard dawg. Maybe you could post there on what made you hate it for those of us who still want one?

I'll pay the shipping, and take the beast off your hands! And I won't be your enemy but a thankful buddy.
