Hey all!

Wanted to put up a post here since I'm a new member to introduce myself.

My name is Rich and I'm picking up my first Victory this Friday 05/03/19. It's a 2010 Victory Cross Roads with an added fairing. Pretty excited about it as I've been eying Victory's since I started riding a few years ago. Prior to this I had a 1999 Suzuki Marauder VZ800 with Cobra Drag Pipes (Cut the baffles down for better sound) and a Mustang seat. That's the only other bike I've ever owned even though I've ridden my friend's Harley's and Kawasaki's, etc etc. Currently residing in NW Indiana, about an hour East of Chicago.

Glad to be a part of this community. I'm looking forward to making some new friendships here!

That's the plan!! Going to have to post on some of the exhaust threads on here. Thinking about making my own baffles for the stockers. Can't really be rolling around sounding like a small lawnmower with that big 106!!

Things tend to catch on fire less when there's water vs a drought I suppose. Raining here too but this past weekend it snowed...

E-Ville! Might have to hit you up if I ever ride down your way. Not sure there will be too much time for that this season but I'd like to go down and do some riding in Kentucky & Tennessee sometime!

An oregon welcome

I bought a 2010 XR new and rode it until recently, when Father Time fixed it so I do no more two wheeling after 67 years of it. There'a a lot to love about the XR, especially the low CofG. Here's my ride of the past 9 years - note the chrome forks. Yeah, I went crazy blinging her.

Mine is the exact same color! Previous owner did some work to her though. Got an aftermarket batwing fairing instead of the windshield and a few performance changes. I gotta say. She rides like a dream!
