    VERY SHARP… If I was in the market for an HD RG or SG .. would definitely have to look this one over and compare while shipping…

    Normally I despise ‘flames; but this one ain’t too shabby – I actually rode a ’12 Cross Country this past summer for about 250-300 miles (mostly solo) through the winding Vermont back country and was surprisingly pretty impressed with the bike. Nice acceleration, good handling and braking. Sweet. For some reason, I never gave much thought to owning one but I wouldn’t have a problem recommending them. Go America!

    God I freakin hate the high slope of their gas tanks.
    And they payed people to come up with that design ?
    Freakin ugly. No correct flow.

    I’m not into flame paint jobs, but I like the way they did this.
    I also like the forged crash bars.

    I have never understood bikes on fire. I don’t get it and I don’t like it. God I hate burning bikes.

    That tired theme has surely run its course by now. So, let’s move on now, shall we? I dunno, maybe lightening can take its place. Or tornadoes. Multiple tornadoes. Like, houses in mid flight or something.

    Or big tsunami waves. Giant tsunami waves even. Tsunami waves with lightening AND tornadoes, that would be cool….

    Nice flames but get rid of that butt ugly rear fender treatment!

  13. 13 BobS Dec 14th, 2012 at 10:08 am

    Hey courtney, tell how you feel about skulls? How about black leather and tattoos? Lol.

  14. 14 Jack Dec 14th, 2012 at 12:27 pm

    Its Me Paul…yeah that bike just doesn’t have any lines. Are you kidding, blind, or just simply don’t know what you are talking about. Maybe just a bit much on the lines for me, but your comment doesn
    ‘t make sense.

    While Flames is not my favorite paint scheme. I do think that in the last 5 years Victory ( Polaris) has done an excellent job in positioning their street motorcycle business and listened to the wants of the american touring rider. I have test ridden both the Cross Country and the Vision and the seating position and riding experience are dead on. The Motor Company should be taking note!
    Victory is here to stay and I think it is good for some competition from another US MADE motorcycle company to keep prices within reach for a US top notch cruiser.
    My next cruiser will be a Cross Country with Audio and paint upgrades!…Flames…. Not so sure..

    I’m so over flames, skulls, etc. Just give me a classy two-tone, with just the right mix of copper or brass bits and perhaps wide whitewalls or narrow double whitewalls.

    McGillicutty, you rode a Victory for 300 miles and you like the acceleration, braking and and handling and you never gave much thought to owning a Victory, but with the Paint Job would you reconsider? This is a great paint Job and was designed for this Bike on this Bike. First Class, Victorious!

    Great! Really have good features…

    Love this Victory. . .

    Re-tool the rear fender. Chop it back to be flush with the back of the bags…………..

  21. 21 courtney Dec 17th, 2012 at 3:51 am

    Well Bob, as you might imagine, I’m not too fond of skulls either. However, as ironic as life tends to be, my current bike of choice is… a Crossbones! 🙂

    Not that I care for that stupid Casper on the side of my oil tank at all, but I’ll get him off of there one of these days…. No flames tho!
