Newbie Here. I went and test drove a Cross Country yesterday. Wow really liked it . I'm not a newbie to motorcylcling, been riding since I was 12 and I'm 52. I've had my share of bikes wth my favorites being the HD Roadglide & a Goldwing. I test drove the XC out of curiosity because I seen one at bike night and really liked it, it stood out more that anything there to me and my wife. Long story short I'm picking it up this Saturday and I'm pumped to say the least. I loved everything about the bike, the handling, the torque & HP, guages, ergonomics, Bump obsortion was a huge treat. I went and looked at another RG and started having flashbacks of road irregularities and decided to go to the Victory dealer. This was a good move, the XC rides very,very good. You can actually hit a pothole without leaving part of you or the bike behind. I love the looks of the bike as well. Big time. Well looks like its going to be a great weekend.
