Default Finnally, Im here!

Hello all,
After two years wanting one, yesterday I became the proud new owner of a 2013 Victory XC. I had been riding a 2009 Honda VTX 1300 R and, WOW, what a change.
I ride with a motorcycle ministry in NE Arkansas. They are a great bunch of guys and gals, but not a Victory in the bunch....until now.

Congrats on your new XC and welcome to the forum.

Please add your bike's year and model to your signature. Here's why.

Blest with victory and peace, may the heav'n rescued land
Praise the Power that hath made and preserved us a nation.
Then conquer we must, when our cause it is just,
And this be our motto: "In God is our trust."
And the star-spangled banner in triumph shall wave
O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave!

I also came from a VTX 1300c and was really impressed at my XR.
Handling is way better, Gas mileage is way better, and all the other details (ABS, Turn signal cancel, No gas Valve to mess with, Fuel indicator etc) way better bike......
Ride and enjoy !!!

I reject your reality, and submit my own!

Welcome from down under Dredd
Awesome ride you have there. You should familiarise yourself with this; http://www.motorcycle.com/shoot-outs...ggers-shootout
because your bike is essentially the same but with fairing and hard bags.
