Hey all,

New to forum from New Hampshire here, I am thinking about a Victory for a new bike in a year or 2 so thought I would get a head start on learning a little about em to increase the ole knowledge and know what to look for and ask when speaking to stealers.

I Currently own a 2009 RG and love it, just passed 51k miles. I love to tour once a year for about 12 days so I am only interested in a bagger. I have ridden down to the Dragon a few times, went to Niagara falls and upstate NY, and I am riding out to Sturgis this year and back. WOO HOO.

Anyway I kind of like the Cross Country and it seems to grow on me more and more every time I see one. Does anyone know if Victory intends on making a frame mounted fairing in the future?

Anyone heading to Sturgis this year?

find a 2013 or wait till clearance on the 2014's. I bought a 2013 Judge and 2013 Highball in August last year, when they were ready to release the 2014's. Both demos, both came with extended warranties, clearance? saved 5k total.

Welcome to the forum. Vic already makes a frame-mounted fairing bike; the Vision. It was a close runner-up in my latest buy decision.

All I can say is, ride one (you didn't say whether you have or not). Then you will know for sure.

Ahh I did not realize those were frame mounted but looking at it now I can see it. Honestly I am not that fond of the styling on the vision as much as the CC. What did you end up buying?

Thanks for the info gbrockel, when I am ready I will definetly look into used or leftover, I have seen alot of Vic's with low mileage around here surprisingly cheap but most are Kingpins and Hammer types, not alot of CC's

Welcome! Your geographically close to Kyle Crandall at KMC Powersports. That's reason enough to get a Vic.

I could not resist the allure of the Cross Country

Welcome aboard!

Like Broggyr said, yah gotta ride the Cross Bikes and the Vision to really know which one best fits your riding style. A Vic Demo ride event is the best way, because they offer $1K off during the Demo.

I came off Sport Bikes and when I rode the XC I was shocked at how well it handled as a 750 pound bagger. The Vision handles really well too but, the storage is, well, there is no storage.
