Howdy everyone, I've had my 2011 Cross Country for about two and half months now. I've put about 5000 mile on it so for. All I can say at this point is---I LIKE it lots! I'm really looking forward to customizing the bike to my personal tastes. So far I've installed a 1" lowering like from Witchdoctor and made highway peg brackets for the forged bars. Did I say I love my new bike. If I didn't well I do. My previous bike was a 2007 Vstar 1100 classic. It was a good move up. And I really loved my vstar. The only thing I miss is that Vstar was a little quicker off the line. It doesn't compete on the superslab where I do most of my riding.
