Honestly, I have not yet ridden the new Cross-Dressers from Victory. I have ridden everything else including the Vision, but when the chance came to ride the Xbikes I didn't have time and now it's too cold to enjoy it. My local dealer is all one could ask for. His wife bought a Cross Country and she has an 11 second 8-Ball. Ya gotta love that in a woman.
Well, we do have a position open. It involves doing everything Pete, Fonz and I don't want to do. Oh, and there is no pay. Let me know when you want to start!

Victory pays them $5.00 per survey, what do you expect them to say?

They look better with the RC30 plastic, IMHO. But you gotta have low clipons to clear the bodywork properly. Beats on the ol' wrists just a tad too much - didn't care for that even when I was younger.

Not quite. It's still their OPINION Dukester. I guess your definition of 'objective' in Cali is different than the rest of the world.

The surveying I refer to is done by a third party (JD Power), not Victory. The scores are compared in relation to all OEMs. That's certainly more objective than most posts on this thread!

Well, it's just too bad that that owner satisfaction doesn't translate into sales numbers.
