Default new possible owner

Hello all I've been riding for a while now owned a few harleys. Lately I've been thinking about getting a bagger and after doing a demo event with victory I must say I'm quite impressed with the cross country. It may not have the aftermarket support as the street glide but the XC looks much nicer straight off the floor. I don't have the harley blinders like many people so I joined here to collect info before making any decisions and look forward to all the info

Come from the HD Stable myself and after having my Cross Country almost 2 years and 36,000+ Miles am quite pleased with the Switch .. Bone Stock the XC had my power than my Full Stage 2 Ultra did after spending 5K extra trying to get more power .. After spending 2K on the Cross Country in Power Mods now quite happy since broke well into the 100 HP Zone ..

Gator joe thanks that's reassuring to see the 106 is responsive to mods. I'm trying to decide which cross I want. For some reason they are they only victory that speak to me. The toss up is which. Do I go with tthe bare bones cross country and save some coin. Or the new magnum which looks to have a lot of mods I would do to the bike anyway with bigger wheel and apes but the paint is a little over the top. Or for the same price snagging a XC tour and get the trunk heated items and lower fairings. Decisions decisions
