Hello all, I joined this site about a week ago. My son in law works for Polaris and he prompted my interest in the Victory motorcycles. I currently ride a 2011 Kawasaki 900 Classic, but I'm ready for a bigger bike and was going to look at the Kawasaki Vaquero or Voyager but after visiting with him I think I would like to get a Cross Country or Cross Country Tour. I really would like an American made bike but the Harley's and Indians are just too damn expensive. Anyway, hello all and maybe I will be showing off a new Victory soon.

Welcome, Victor! I think you are on the right path and for what it's worth, I'll share a little of my experience.

I started on a Sabre, went to a 1500 Nomad, which I still have, and on which the wife and I toured for about 60K plus miles. Did the job well, but knowing that we wanted bigger and more amenities, I started looking around. A LOT!! I test rode the Voyagers twice trying desperately to love it, but it just didn't have all that I wanted in fit, finish and power. I tried the Gold wings, but having my legs trapped just doesn't work for me. Anyway, I did a LOT of research and decided the CCT was the only bike with everything I wanted. As soon as I got it and started riding it, I was NOT dissapointed. And after a couple of years, I still like this bike more every time I ride it. IT is that good. You won't be unhappy. Best of luck. Happy hunting!

Listen to your son and what we here have to say about our Vics. If you are over 5-9 you will find a Vic to be very roomy and comfortable, more so than the competition. Vics are extremely easy to service, so if you know which end of the screwdriver is the handle, your Vic will never see the inside of a bike shop. Lastly, you'll have an encyclopedia worth of info right here in this forum, just for the asking. Go ahead, make your day and pull the trigger.

I'm right at 5' 9". I stopped by a dealer today and sat on a leftover 2016 Cross Country Tour and some cross Country models. Also sat on a used Harley and the Victory was a much better fit for my short legs in addition to being, in my opinion, much better balanced. If I were to buy a Voyager or Vaquero I would have to get a lowering kit so I could flat foot when stopped. I'm not real concerned about speed, I just like to cruise.

The Vic's foot controls are movable fore and aft for added fit. CofG is very for such a heavy b ike it feels a lot lighter.
