I've had my XC for 6 days and between work & family obligations I've been able to put 300 miles on it. First, this is the best handling bike I've ever owned and that includes smaller bikes. Second, the power is great. With the Lloydz air filter, Freedom Performance true duals, Lloydz ATS set at +4 and the stage 1 download this thing moves much quicker than I expected. Third, the comfort of the stock seat combined with the driver backrest is great. Love the bike and I can't believe I waited this long to jump on the Victory band wagon. After about 1500-2000 miles I'll be doing the Lloydz VM1-DR cam install and that should really wake the engine up! My only complaint is the stock windshield sucks... But after researching this forum I think I have a good idea what will work best for me. I also enjoy all the looks and comments the bike gets. My harley buddies still give me grief... They reminded me that I own a ton of harley shirts to which I replied that t-shirts are the best thing that harley makes! Never had one of their t-shirts break down on me yet!!! Thanks for all the advice and I can't wait to put more miles on this thing!
