I'm planning on adding a Cross Country to the stable sometime this year, so I thought id come over and start learn about them here. The wait sucks, but I want a bigger down payment.

Welcome aboard. I too moved up from a Shadow. I liked that bike a lot, but traded it toward a 2014 CC 8 Ball.

Welcome. I also have a shadow 1100 spirit, hate to get rid of it but can't keep two. I just purchased a cct and love it. Still getting used to the extra weight but still a great bike.

Thanks. Just got in from a quick 140 mile ride on the Shadow. My plan is to turn the Shadow into a solo bike (maybe a bobber) and the use the XC for trips and taking the wife for rides.

Welcome. Lots of good info on this site...I've learned a great deal about my Victory room this site. No "Crazy" members here...well there's a Half-Crazy, but he's not actually crazy.
