Victory Cross Country – Wrap-Up Gone, but not forgotten.

It was mixed emotions that we bid to our long-term Cross Country. We the big white bagger’s days-on-end the stonk and thunder of its 106-inch the amazing backroad agility it for such a big lump, and the steamer-trunk of its three-piece baggage (which the optional $1749.99 Lock Trunk).

On the other hand, we get all misty-eyed over the departure of the ’s straight-line nervousness, awkward balancing act, car-crash and saddlebag lids that and rattle like someone empty bleach bottles. as we emphasized in an earlier update, the does so many other so very well that we riding it anyway, despite annoyances.

On extended rides, the seat, spread-out ergonomics, ride and excellent weather allowed riders to end every day in the saddle free of fatigue, for whatever the evening might Passengers had equal praise for the pillion accommodations, giving part of the seat high for all-day comfort.

Commuting and day rides on the Cross were just as enjoyable. The thrums along the road able to complete most quickly without the need for a And it handles curves as though on the backroads, no matter if it’s gently arcing through at a
