I am the proud new owner of a 2013 Cross Country Tour! I have been riding a Yamaha Royal Star Venture for many years/miles and have nothing but great things to say about the bike and the RSV forums I belonged to over the years!

I live in central Ohio so not sure when I will get my first ride in but I could not be any more happy to be the proud owner of a Victory motorcycle and look forward to learning about my bike from this forum!

Welcome! Great bike.

That said, while it's (hopefully) garaged for the winter, for a little bonding with your new machine, you might want to:

1) Make sure the lowers were adjusted properly (see http://www.victoryforums.com/showthread.php?t=12057 ).

2) Add some toothed washers to the battery terminals, and make sure they're tight (see assorted threads).

3) If you're normal-ish height and you don't always (or ever) want to look through the stock Tour windshield, search gobs of threads on replacement windshields (the webBikeWorld Tour review, http://www.webbikeworld.com/motorcycle-reviews/victory-cross-country-tour-review/ , has links to five aftermarket windshield companies near the bottom of that page, for starters).

Congratulations and welcome to your new CCT. You clearly have impeccable taste in motorcycles! The Yamaha RSV is great a motorcycle. You're about to be very pleasantly surprised by the Victory CCT.

What color, ad ons or accessories did you get?

Congrats from another former RSV owner!

The Vic is a very different bike from the RSV. You will find that it doesn't seem to have a lot of power in rpm range below 2000 (without a few mods) but if you run it between 2500 and 3500, it has plenty.

You'll also find the Vic extremely nimble compared to the RSV.

For me the RSV was a "love-hate" thing but I have found nothing I hate (or even dislike) about the Vic.

Graduated to a Cross Roads from decades of first gen Ventures. Those were very entertaining bikes; comfortable, great weather protection, powerful and handled well in the twisties. Needing a lower seat height, I had to convert over to a cruiser and I find the XR does all those things just as well. Welcome to the club.
