I'd like to maybe add another bike to the stable and the CC Tour is what strikes my fancy here lately, but like with anything else made by man, stock just doesn't appeal and there are some visual things about the Vic that would need to change if I were to buy one. I figured that this would be a good place to come see what everyone is doing and what the aftermarket has to offer.

I like diversity and while I love my CVO road glide, the CC has been calling my name lately. That calling combined with my personal dislike of the HD brand bat wing offerings makes the CC a perfect candidate. Hopefully you all don't mind a HD guy browsing the boards to see what everyone has done.

Your not alone, I just joined 10 minutes ago. I have been riding Harleys for the last 15yrs, test rode a few XC's this weekend and am thinking of making a switch. Welcome, let me know which one you end up with, lol.

We love to have you H-D guys lurking here. Vics are amazing bikes in many ways, but fair warning, your tools are going to get lonely. And when you buy one, an extended warranty is a waste of money. Many H-D guys are concerned about the drought of Vic dealers--you only need a dealer for the purchase. These are very dependable bikes that require very little maintenance and are soooo easy to work on. I'm pushing 80 and do ALL my maintenance, including tire changes. Nothing not to like, except the horn, but that was an easy fix.

It's good to know that Vics are low maintenance, but knock on wood I've been lucky.... 3 Harleys, 85000 miles, 8 years, and only one issue which was a leaky transmission pan fixed under warranty. With that said my tools are already lonely most of the time, and I'm fine with that.

I know this is a Vic forum and I am a Harley guy, actually I'm a VEHICLE guy in general and think they all have their rightful place. trucks, cars, Ford, Dodge, Chevy, Vic, Honda, Harley, it don't matter to me... Wait, that's a lie.... There is one spacecraft looking bike that I just can't get past the look of, but it still has it's place and I don't judge anyone for what they like. I mean hell I ride one of the ugliest Harleys ever made.

With that said I have decided that I'm gonna go take a CCT for a cruise tomorrow and see what all the hype is about, but I know without a doubt that I'd have to change a few things which I've been reading up on. Wheels (23//17), wrap fender, bars, chrome has to fall off, prefer stage 2, but stage 1 at a minimum (assuming these things have cats in the pipes), solo seat (Is this possible with the Vic?), bags/extensions, 2-1 exhaust (I'll make it if I have to), the list is endless. Looking at what I have into my bike I'm already starting to have second thoughts. Good thing I have my own powder guy, lol.
