Hi everyone.

I gave myself an early Christmas present by ordering a new Cross Roads yesterday - now I just have to wait until some time in January to collect it from the dealer!

It's my first Victory, but after I took a long test ride on one I found the bug had bitten hard. It'll be sharing the garage with my daily ride, a Honda CB1300S.

Looking forward to participating in the forum.

Congrats, Welcome to the forum, and good luck making it until the pick up date.

$20,000 and 3000 miles DO NOT make you a biker

Its not as bad as it sounds. He does have a daily ride that he has not given up riding. It is a lot easier to wait when you have a daily ride to use.
