Just visited a Victory dealer on Thursday and was very impressed with the Cross Country Tour. Thinking a change of brands might be in the cards. Glad I found this forum because there are some questions I have about the CC Tour..............PJ

Welcome to the forum and hopefully to Victory. Made the switch late last summer from a Vstar to a Cross Country. Did a demo ride on the tour and it's a great machine. Good luck in your decision.

Ride safe!

You own Doctor Spock?!? Welcome from the snow covered NW. I know that's no big deal to you Easterners, but we usually have to go to the mountains to see snow. The mountains came to us!

First question i have about the cc tour is what was the first year they were built ? Also was wondering how close is the cross country with the tourpak installed to the actual cc tour ? doesn't seem to me there is much of a difference...............PJ

Welcome, The CCT and the CC are the same bike under the skin. The CCT come with the tour pack, hard lowers, tall windshield, heated seat and grips. You can add a tour pack to a base CC. If you want a to turn a CC into a CCT it will cost you more then if you just buy the CCT to start with.

What I do is ride 90% of the time with the trunk off cause it looks better and handles better with out it. I also swapped the tall windshield for a klockworks windshield. If I go on a long ride in just a few minutes I can swap the trunk and windshield and I'm ready to go. Its the best of both worlds. I can tell you the vulcan is a great bike I loved mine, but the Victorys are in a whole different class. You won't regret buying one.

2010 was the first year for the CC and 2011 I think was the first year for the CCT.

99 Kawasaki Vulcan 800 (sold)
2012 Vegas (traded)
2013 Cross Country Tour

Victory Tri-Ovals, Reverse Kit, Lloydz air filter, Lloydz quarter turn throttle ring, PCV, Lloydz Touring cams, HMD Bars, DGD keyless ignition, Rockford Fosgate Amp, klockworks windshield. 119hp 123lbs torque.

What he said. Indeed the Vic's are truly in a whole different class than your Vulcan are or my 2 Hondas were (Shadow 750 and Sabre 1100).

Thanks for the replies. The main reason i was questioning the difference is this. Closest "decent" Vic dealer is 3 hours away which means with my crazy work schedule i be taking vacation days just to go for the Vic mandated service on a new bike. I bought my Vulcan from a local high end used bike dealer. Meaning he only deals in late model first class bikes. A lot of bigger cruisers baggers touring rigs etc. I bought my '09 Vulcan from him 2 years ago with only 1900 miles on it and saved $1000.00's off the price of brand new. So I've already talked to him about finding me a Vic but I may have to go with a str8 cross country and add on a few things to make it as close to the tour as possible.
