When I bought my Cross Roads in February of 2010, it had been out only a short time. So before sealing the deal, I went into the forums to see what Victory owners were complaining about--nothing other than a lack of clothing and accessories.
So when the sale was being consummated, the salesman asked if I wanted the extended warranty. I replied that I don't think I would get my money's worth out of it after researching the forums. He said, You're right; we only see these bikes in the shop for routine maintenance and Accessories. Its been almost four years and there have been no problems, so I'm winning that bet.
Big difference 'tween H-D and Vic; High tech engine vs. low tech and ease of maintenance...just one oil drain plug. Better comfort, ride and handling too. Go into Youtube and enter "Victory vs. Harley...if you dare.
The only common difugalty seems to be loose battery terminal bolts. Should you decide to make the intelligent choice and buy a Victory, make certain those are tight. You might want to add lock washers. Keep us posted.
