Default New member- new owner soon I hope

Hi everyone,
It's nice to find such an informative and friendly group of folks.
I've been riding all sorts of bikes since 1964, most recently sold my Can Am RT 3 wheeler because as much as I loved it I missed that leaned over feeling in a corner, and with 3 wheels you are guaranteed to hit every pothole out there. The same dealer sell Victory and all I see is smiling faces on owners.

I have one question, well a lot more than one, but one right now.

How does your Victory handle in dirt or sand? I don't plan on long excursions in the slippery stuff but there's always construction and sandy parking spots etc. Some bikes handle it with ease, some want to fall right over, or can't get any traction and get stuck.

Let me know if you have any offroad experiences with your Victory. It will seal the deal for me if it is a competent dirt roader.

many thanks in advance.

I've been in loose material before but not dirt roads. Two things I like is best center of gravity ive rode on both the XCT and vision. 2. My short legs reach the ground. I guess 3 would be great clutch, smooth and not lurtchy on any of the Vic's I red during demo days
