Has anyone switched from having a Harley for a long time to a Victory? I have been riding Harley's for 23 years. I currently have a Road Glide and am thinking torwards a Cross Roads. Does anyone think it was not a good move or have you not looked back and why please. Both for the ride experience / quality of the bikes and service / manufacturer support. cheers

I was a 20+ year Harley owner as well, sold my 06 Street Glide and thought I was done with riding. Test rode a Vision on a whim and bought one a few days later. I still love Harley Davidsons but Polaris/Victory does make a nice bike. From a power and comfort standpoint in bone stock form HD cannot compete with Victory. In fit, finish, and dealer support, Harley Davidson wins by a mile. Just my opinion. My opinion is you cannot go wrong with one of the new Cross bikes. Good Luck and Ride Safe.

To clarify the dealer comment, mostly for # of available dealerships in my area. I have 4 HD dealers within 20 miles, closest Vic dealer is 50 miles, and then 80+ miles.

ive owned several harleys, the last one a 1988 fxrs anniversary edition, owned 17 yrs. beatiful bike, parts plentiful, i just jot tired of working on it.

if had the vic engine and trans. i probably would never have traded it.

ive put 2000 miles on my new vegas and all i do is wipe it down have yet to wash it ! in stock form it will run circles around my old harley that had 2 into 1 vance & hines, cam, adjustable lifters, elderbrock carb, dyna 2000 single fire ignition.

Owned seven different HD's over the years, and one of them even came pre assembled. Got my first Vic six years ago, and I am now on my third Vic with a total of 160,000 miles between them. I switch bikes because of boredom, not wear, and I ride the piss out of everything I own.
I still own an HD to this day. 1974 FLHP and it is the only thing I own that is stock original. Well I say own. I am still paying for it*LOL*

HD to Victory

One big difference is you take a HD in for service its going to cost you a minimum of $500. Take Vic in for the first oil change, $150. From that time on, fuel it and ride, the difference is you dont work on a vic, you just add chrome and make it your own:cool:
