She shore is purty. Congratulations on your new "baby." One thing I do know about the Cross bikes: The more you ride it, the more you are going to like it. I notice you don't have the lower wind deflectors. If it gets cool to cold where you live, they will add a ton of comfort to your ride. If you think she's sweet now, just wait until you get her broken in and all those ponies come to full stride. Yee Haw! I love your statement, "The thrill of Victory." I'm going to use it too, but I will add to it, the agony of H-D.

I have the Vic ones - worked them in on the deal when dickering for the bike. They are great in summer too as they help to keep my feet on the boards at high speeds. I've ridden my XR in the low 30s and my legs do fine. I won't leave home without em. One thing I like about Vic's deflectors is I can go to a plastics shop and make replacements, or differently shaped ones for cheap. Love your idea about the treadmill - so far this month, we have had rain every day but one and today is the 26th. Enough already!

Nice pics. I didn't think I'd like the blue, but that's a nice shade. I still like my black better but the blue is a close second IMO:). Congrats on your new bike. I too am waiting for the rain to clear. Seems like it is sunny up until the workday is finished.

Congratulations on the new XC! thumb up It looks great. The blue is my first choice with the white/silver second. I'm still working on my buy and I hope to have pics of my XC up on this site shortly. My thanks to RICZ as well for recommending the lowers. I was still debating about adding them to mine, but not anymore.

Congratulations!

Welcome aboard. The XC is a very good bike. You'll like all the options on it because Victory did a good job thinking them out. I am pulling 45-50 mpg at 60-65 mph. Do recommend the ipod cable, and activate the XM radio. My last bike was a BMW R1200RT, and it does not compare to the XC-glad I bought the XC.:) By the way, if you ever have it painted you will discover quickly how easy it is to disassemble, and reassemble the body parts. Again, Victory did a great job at engineering it to be simple and user friendly. Have fun.thumb up

I had a BWM r1200rt as well. The wife called it the shudder bug. The first redlight we took off at she says what the hells wrong with this thing. I explained it didn't have quite the torque it needed for that tall first gear and you had to rev it up to get going, and it shutters a little. Then she says, whats that smell and I said thats the clutch smell from reving it up. . I about got rear ended at a redlight by an F250 from stalling the motor. I traded it the next day. I wished it would have happened a week sooner, I would not have paid them $385 for a first service. :rolleyes: Love the XC, rides, drives great. Takes bumps better than any bike I've had and I've had about all of them, seriously.

Guys it don't matter what color you get just get one. I have to admit after a test drive I would have bought it whatever color it was. Amazing bike. Victory should be proud of this baby, I know I am.

I thought about waiting on the 2 tone, white and silver. They had the blue metallic on the floor. They pushed it outside in the sunlight and it was over. Had to have it. I have seen the white and silver, quiet a few of them I might add, but it doesn't grab me like the blue metallic does.
Like NewCrew said it doesn't really matter about the color as long as you get to ride.

Congrats on the new ride

Jeff is a hoot. Don't take your helmet in to the store. I did and he kidnapped it untill I spent some $$.

I hope your new baby brings you miles of smiles. Like mention, once the wind issues are dealt with, you've got a great long distance or around town bike.

I like the blue too but it and the black are the hardest to keep looking clean. The white tolerates dust better. The bikes are also the perfect canvas for a custom paint job; as someone on another forum said.

Beautiful bike, that will probably be my next purchase in a couple of months, but with so few color choices it is still up in the air. The crimson & black vision is right up there in cosideration also, decision, decision.

Congrats on the new bike. The blue is very sharp. I was like you. I saw the Cory Ness Red Sunset and fell in lust. Had to have it. Here is my bad boy. (if I can remember how to post Pics)
