Glad to find this forum. It looks like there are many helpful members with loads of good info.

Bought a red XCT about 2 weeks and 1000 miles ago. Love this bike!

I'm much happier with the Victory logo over the tank badge. The badge didn't fit the tank well and the logo looks much cleaner and professional.

How much was the Victory logo? I think I agree that I would prefer it to the badge.

I have the same logo in black on my Pearl XCT, and agree it looks much better. IIRC, they list at 30ish dollars.

I paid right around $40 for the logo pair. They were just a little nerve-wracking to put on, but definitely not hard to do if you measure a few times with a flexible sewing tape. This helped me get the template in the same spot on both sides.

The pics don't do the logo justice; looks much better in person.

I have no doubt they'd look great, DakotaRider, and thanks. I wish you could see them in person. After I finished, I just stood back and said, "Wow," to myself about a dozen times. If you decide to do it, I'd be happy to give you some pointers, if you'd like. You'd be welcome to call my cell, if you wish. I received some pointers from a biker who did the same thing and then learned a few of my own through the process.

DakotaRider, Victory makes this logo set in black, too. That might look awesome on Pearl White given the contrast. See the Amazon link below:

Couple of pics below - nothing closeup on the tank though. Should still be able to make out the logo, as well as the powdercoated bag racks and bag rails.

Very nice, devildog. The powdercoating looks great! I need to do a bunch of the upgrades you've already done....good choices, you've made.

That second photo gives a whole new meaning to "Tank Badges"!

Sako, Dog...yes the black will look pretty darn good on my white XCT too. I've been thinking about that badging for a while, but just haven't pulled the trigger on them since I haven't seen what it would look like. Now I have, it seems to be something I would like to do. Thanks for the feedback guys....yours both look awesome!!! :cool:thumb up
