Ok, i have a deposit down at my local dealer and he is still saying that he doesnt have a firm release date. I have searched all over the friggin internet for a release date for the 2010's but cant find ANYTHING! I have seen a few posts about people "just buying them" but i dont know if that means it is sitting at home in their garage or if they have just "paid" for one. Anyone have info on this????

thanks a BUNCH in advance.

2010's are already in some showrooms. Not all dealers have them yet but its been close to a month now since the first 2010's were delivered.

2010 are in some dealers. I picked my 2010 Cross Country up at my dealers 3 weeks ago. A few local dealers cant get a look at one while other dealers have no problems.

Delivery

We have both in stock at work for sale
Don't call "customer service" they don't know and won't put you in touch with someone who does. Dealers don't know, because regional sales reps don't know. Kind of strange that you can't at least find out when your bike will be delivered.

They arrived at the dealers in this area about two weeks ago within three days they were gone. If one arrives at your dealer better make a deal in a hurry or it will be gone.

I have a deposit down already. The only reason financing and what-not wasn't done two months ago was because they have no idea when they are getting them. It's hard to finance something without any info. BUT, I was REALLY hoping it would be an Xmas present to myself. looks like it will be after to the new year for sure. i dont mind waiting on anything if i know a time. waiting without having a time frame stinks for any of us humans. It ESP stinks that there are people in states that already have one in the garage and cant ride until spring, but my state, florida, still hasnt seen them and doesnt know when we will.

The thing that i don't understand is that there is no way for the dealers to find out when they are getting one? and you can't call ANYONE to find out?

Hmm, I'm in FL and picked mine up 12/3. My dealer, Volusia Motorsports, has received and delivered 4 or 5 Cross Countries and has a Cross Roads in stock (at least they did a week ago). I know Gainesville has seen a few as well.

It's really sounding like many dealers didn't commit to bikes at the dealer show so now that they have orders they were put at the bottom of the queue. OR, they have other problems with Victory they aren't telling you about.

Every dealer can look at the projected delivery month of their orders and once the unit is scheduled for production they should see an actual ship date in their system. Once it ships they receive the electronic invoice with the VIN. If your dealer is saying they have no idea I think they are blowing smoke up your ass.

Thanks for all the replies everyone. I have found out that it goes on the truck next week. I won't have it till the new year but at least I have a round about time frame now, other than "soon." I was hearing "soon" starting in November.

I live up in the frozen tundra 33 miles from the factory. I have been trying to see a cross roads up close and set on it for a couple months I have been to three differant dealers and have yet to see one. The ones they have are sold and they wont let you near them. I wonder if they are shipping them down south where people can at least ride them. As for delivery all the dealers have told me the same thing, if you order it today they will have it before April. :mad:

I understand. Again, I believe that Polaris and Victory should be separated so that Victory can concentrate on MOTORCYCLES! Not, snowmobiles and ATVs! And down here in the south, we don't use snowmobiles; however, a company should take care of their customers. Polaris customer service is a JOKE! They can't answer questions, just take complaints and maybe forward them up the chain. However, you or I will never get the telephone number to the secret bat cave, or be able to take to anyone above the dealership. Which isn't too bad except even the dealerships don't get honest answers. Don't get me started on my order of a tall windshield. Anyway, hang in their. Maybe our new socialist government will take Polaris over anyway.

Went to the forth dealer yesterday and still haven't seen the allusive cross country. We talked to the dealer about it and he said when one comes in the guy who ordered it takes it home. I asked why victory had not put a bike in each dealership that could not be sold and he said they do that with the snowmobiles. then i asked him about the buffeting issues i have been reading about and he come uncorked. he said we need to get our asses off the INTERNET and go ride the bike and see. LOL i told him thats why i was there i want to ride one DUH!!!!!:confused:

That's sad but pretty funny. It's like a Abbott and Costello bit.

Mainly because the first run were pre orders. The same thing happened when the Vision came out. After a few months the dealers will start getting their regular supply. Some dealers have them because buyers backed out on the purchase.

I finally found a cross country last week in Omaha.:) I sat on it and fell in love. You just cant see everything in a photo and the one thing that jumped out was how wide the passenger seat is, i think my wife will love it. I could not ride it because two feet of snow but I know I'm going to love it. I bought it and cant wait to get it home, I will have to dig my bike trailer out of a 10 foot drift of snow. seriously thinking of trailering it south so i can ride it. Daytona is only 1500 miles away. Cant wait!!!!!:rolleyes:
