I purchased my Cross Country sunset red and silver in April of 2013. It was a showroom left over. Before this, I owned a Suzuki Volusia, Yamaha Royal Star and Roadstar. First the negatives. The bars are a little too far forward for my 5' 8" height but not bad. The motor, due to being overhead cam, makes a ticking noise that if you're not used to, it can be a little worriesome and anoying. that's especially if you're parked next to your buddies who ride Harley's and have the need to pick on small details so they feel superior - Ha. Wind buffeting is an issue with this bike so a windshield change and lowers are a must aftermarkert item. The positive! This bike is by far the best riding bike I've ever owned. It's well balanced and turns on a dime. So far no mechanical issues. It has plenty of power and is very smooth on the road. It has a nice radio but you must purchase the cable for the MP3 player as an aftermarkert item. This should have come with the bike in my opinion. Overall, I am very satified with this bike and encourage everyone to test drive a Victory soon - especially you Harley riders. You no longer have the market on "American Made"! It's very close to the perfect bike but as they say - nothing's perfect. Happy riding all.

After looking and trying different bikes over the last year, I finally made my choice. The 2012 Victory Cross Country was my choice. I looked very hard between a Kawasaki Vaquero and the Victory Cross Country. There were two things about the Cross Country that stood out above the Vaquero. The weight/center of gravity of the Victory makes the bike feel lighter than it really is. It is very easy to handle. The second thing that stood out is how well the Cross Country 'tracks' around the corners. I am amazed at how easy the bike turns exactly when and where I want it to turn. The power is smooth and strong, especially in the 50-80 mph. range. She can really get up and go! The bike has very sharp lines, with the fit and finish being very good. The instrument panel is set up very well with all the important info easy to read and the lighting very pleasing while riding in the dark. The only negative I have found is the wind buffeting that comes up from under the fairing, but I will be getting the lower deflectors installed when I start my upgrades. I feel I have found the bike I will really enjoy for the next 10 years.

I recently bought a 2012 Victory Cross Country after riding Honda's for 30 years. This is the most comfortable and stylish motorcycle I have ever owned. Long rides are a breeze and the comfort of the ride is unmatched. Victory also makes a vast array of accessories to spruce up your ride. This was truly the best purchase decision I have made in motorcycles.

I went to Auburn, WA (7-21-2012) for the Victory Challenge and rode several bikes. I never had ridden a Victory prior. I found the bike (cross country) very comfortable and while maintaining good manners and handling the bike was a blast. I had intended on looking at the Hammer S....but they had just received the Cross Country in black - 2013 and the new decal - wow. Next step, the wife was very outspoken about not wanting to ride and yet at 10:00 that night she said she had a great time after riding 125 miles with me on the back of my new Cross Country. Now a couple of observations. You will notice how the transmission is definitely "speaking" when going in to gear but the shift is smooth and yes, very powerful. My bike is brand new - two miles at delivery - and so knowing the power yet is a bit unclear but it appears to have more than I want to handle without losing my glasses...wow! In summary, drive one, who knows you might end up wearing a Victory hat and typing a testament on the internet. I am thrilled at the purchase of my new black Cross Country. Thanks guys for building a great bike - wow again!!!!!

I purchased my XCountry in March of 2012, as an upgrade to my original bike (2004 Honda Shadow Sabre) and can't say enough how pleased I am with the handling, performance and comfortability of the bike. A friend of mine described it as a big little bike and that about fits it perfectly. It has a ton of power and speed and handles like a bike that weighs hundreds of pounds less. At just over 800 lbs., you would never know it. The boards and seat are the most comfortable I've come across. If you want a good looking, well built, excellent set of wheels, go Victory, hands down.

I just bought my new 2012 XC and couldn't be happier. I own a 2009 Victory Vegas and absolutely love it as well. The 2012 XC comes with standard ABS brakes which is awesome stopping power. It also comes with a high-quality mp3 player/radio embedded in the fairing and your mp3 player can be attached in one of the saddle bags with additional accessories needed. This is a very smooth ride and just great for the long hauls. I own the Sunset Red & Silver Graphics colored one only because I don't want to have my bike look like everyone else's bike - BLACK! I like black, but everyone has a black a bike. This color stands out and shines nicely out in the sun and grabs everyone's attention. I have been asked about this bike so many times I just point them to the dealer now. Anyway, if you are looking for a great bike, this is an amazing one!
