Talking Victory at last!

I've been riding bikes since 1976 and have been looking for a Victory since 2008. I got a 2012 XCT last spring to replace my BMW (with over 140K). I really like the bike and it gave me my first good accident in the 37 years I've been riding. I rolled it on July 16 when I hit an oil patch going around a corner. The bike flipped. I broke two ribs, and the bike sustained damage to every visible part. Progressive put the $$ up to get the bike back and I'm riding it again (it took 3 months to repair). What sucked was I had to ride my HD Dyna while the XCT was in the shop. What was good was that I had a Dyna to ride. Now my Vicory is back the Dyna is on the market.

Wow. I think this post should win the "best introductory post" hands down. Welcome to the forum.

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!

Welcome to the forum.
If you want faster, especially at low RPM, look at the Lloydz ATS. It will give you a nice low end boost at minimal cost.

Present ride - 2013 Victory Vision, black, ATW at +3, Lloydz air filter and adjustable intake, PC5, 30,xxx miles
