Hello, I am from South Mississippi. I don't have a Victory as of yet. I went to Hattiesburg Cycle to buy a Yamaha Stratoliner and while test riding it, the salesman asked me if I wanted to ride the Cross Country on the way back. Wow, what a great bike. I am now in the process of buying a CC. To me it combines the best of the Stratoliner and the Street Glide.
