Default Way pleased with new 2014 XR 8 ball

Hey Folks,

1st post. Been out of riding for a number of years - thought it was time to get back in. Looked at Harley's - they didn't fit me. Discovered Victory - no comparison. I'm a tall rider, and the XR fits great... for any of you with long legs, this is the one. Controls can be adjusted more forward (or to the rear - 3 different spots), and floorboards rock.

Look forward to joining and contributing to the community.

Congrats! I'm a two Harley owner and just swapped a high-ball for a hard-ball which is essentially an XR with apes. I know exactly what you're saying. Enjoy all that room.

Thanks! Not only enjoying the room, but also the strong stock motor! Want to get some miles on it then get to the pipes, etc... I'll be searching the forums for info.

Over 4 years on my XR, so I'm here to say you made a great choice. Whatever mods you do, be sure it includes Lloydz adjustable timing wheel. Wowzers!
You might want to think about making that pretty bike even prettier with my laydown license plate bracket. You don't want that billboard OEM one goofing up the looks, do ya? Click the link in my sig below.

2010 Midnight Cherry XR. 7Jurock, Lloydz AF, ATS, AFR tuned VFCIII, IAV, and T-6 and locally repacked pipes = big smiles. SOLD to a dear friend, so it's still in the family."
2017 Spyder F3 Limited - keeps this old guy in the wind and riding with friends.
Cure that ugly stand up license plate with the cheapest and best laydown bracket. Click this:
