Just purchased my new Cross Country this afternoon at Austin's in Independence MO - and they did a really good job. I was debating between the HD Street Glide and the Cross Country, and they happened to have an Electra Glide in their shop as a trade in. I've been looking at these things for several weeks, but never had the opportunity to view them side by side - WOW, what a difference. Getting off the Cross Country, and then sitting on the Electra Glide, I felt cramped, and it wasn't as comfortable. Decision made! And now I'm the proud owner of a Victory Cross Country and never looking back. Mine is the black one with the silver flames, and rides like a dream - and they did the exhaust on it too - man it sounds good!
