Just got back from a 2500+ km ride over 4 days on my '11 CR. The bike performed beautifully and was a joy to ride. The seat was comfortable for the most part and the wind buffeting was tolerable. That being sais, I am going to be looking into getting some lower deflectors to augment the windshield protection. All in all, I am very, very happy with the performance of my Victory. It was everything I expected it to be and then some!
