Wha? It's like Salvador Dali snuck into the design department, Pee-u.

Victory Cross Roads = 'We made a BIG mistake with the ugly Vision'

Victory Cross Country = 'We made a BIG mistake with the ugly Vision'

I figured Victory had to do something with that ugly pig. They put two other redstyled models around it to at least salvage something from the design. Now if they just totally redesign the Vision, they might actually get somewhere.

Those are two of the most ungainly (is that a word?) motorcycles I have ever seen. We've got a Road King on acid and a Road Glide on acid.

It's more of that Ness Tail Fins styling that just reminds me of bad biker rallies.

Ugh.

I think the Cross-Country looks pretty decent despite the Arlen Ness influence. The rest of the line..... yeeesh.

I think they look pretty nice myself, better than any of "the big four"s cruiser offerings IMO

I have to admit that tail shot of the white Vision with the red tail light swoopy had me thinking impure thoughts.....

"Each bike also claims to be the lightest in terms of in-class weight. The Cross Roads tips in at 745 lbs (780 lbs wet) while the Cross Country weighs 765 lbs (800 lbs wet)."

So she's fat, but not quite as fat as the other gals at the dance.

While the two 'stripper' visions are an improvement (faint praise) over the Vision, they are still not that desirable.

And that Arlen Vison! Hoo-wee! That stinks on ice!

And Buz claimed to be the smartest one in his class too! So much for 'claims'!
