    Hello,

    I'm new to this board. I've always been attracted to Victory bikes ever since I saw the first one. They've alwyas been a bit outside of my budget but I found a 2013 Cross Country Tour that has 100k miles on it. Super clean and well maintained. Guy wants $7k for the bike he's the original owner of the bike; claims it can go to 250k-500k so it's just "broke in" -- thoughts? Is this too many miles? A friend of mine suggested I get it to a shop to do a compression test to make sure the engine is still working good. Any other insights?

    I currently ride a small 650cc Yamaha Vstar but it was just a starter bike and now it's getting a bit tight. I'm a big guy. 6'0" 350lbs. Looking for a bigger more comfortable ride that can go longer ranges.

    I don't doubt the motor is still good but at $7k I think you could find a much lower mile bike for only a few K more.

    You want comfort on long rides look into a Vision. They can be had cheap and are perfect for big guys. For whatever reason they are always a bit cheaper.

    Thanks! Funny that you mention the Vision. That was the first Victory bike I had ever seen and was really impressed.

    I ride with a guy that is at 107k still has the OEM belt. Still runs it hard with no signs of slowing down. I did do neck bearings for him late last year.

    You can likely find 1 with 1/2 the miles for the same $$. If the bike looks right and he has some record or recollection of maintenance items... If the deal feels right to you? Go for it.

    I have a Vision and a XC. They both have their strong points. The Vision has always been the better value but the XCT has the storage unmatched in their class.

    You either like or hate the look IMHO.

    I wouldn't pay that much for a bike with that many miles. If you look around I'd expect you could get one with half the miles at about the same price. Why buy all that wear if you don't have to?

    But nobody can dislike the ride. Plus, the Vision looks completely different from the saddle.

    My CCT has 73K miles on it and it runs better than it did when it was new. I’ll likely get the 117” big bore kit installed when it turns over 100K. With proper maintenance the miles mean very little. But, a CCT with the 116” kit. Oh yes! Contact victory_wayne and get the details because that sounds great.

    If my engine ever needs to come out of the frame, it will go back in a BB. What I really want is a BB steel frame. 200 lbs lighter,,,,:yikes:

    I have over 70K on my 2013 CCT and still going strong but I think you can find a better deal. Remember if you go with a Vision you have to get one of these

    ...if I was 350lbs I would be looking at a vision : don’t be in a hurry to spend your money.

    That's way too much for 100k miles. Keep looking, you'll find the one. Took me a bit but I found my 11XC "Tour" with under 5500 miles last fall, and I didn't pay much more than what they want for the bike your looking at.

    A big block installation will run around $6500 by itself. So, considering that, the bike victory_wayne mentioned could be a real steal.
