I just got back from the dealer with my new Cross Country. What a great bike! I put 50 miles on it and so far have been completely impressed.
After reading about these new Vics for awhile, I finally made a trip to the dealer on Saturday to put a deposit down on a new Cherry CC...had my heart set on that color...or so i thought. While I was there, I asked to see the extreme skull scheme that they just got in. It had just been delivered and hadn't even been taken out of the crate yet. a tech and my salesman opened up the crate for me....and all 3 of us stopped and stared when it was uncovered.
The skull scheme looks 100 times better in person than any photo i've seen of it so far. And it instantly attracted a crowd....within a few minutes, there were at least half a dozen guys standing around drooling.
It took me about an hour to change my mind from ordering a Cherry to putting a hold on the skull bike.
After riding it home, i'm head over heels in love! :D Can't wait for the weather to warm up so I can get more riding in!

Big congratulations!!!! You liked the "skulls" eh??? Interesting - because I'm w/ you. I like the cherry color - based on the pictures. It's interesting that "in person" you chose the skulls bike over the cherry color. Now I NEED the see a "Skulls XC."

Enjoy - pictures & more ride impressions please!!!!!

skulls are ok but really not for me. They do look better in person though than any picture I've ever seen. Then again, most of the Victory pictures never do the bike justice.

The cherry is kind of interesting I think....the first CC i looked at was cherry....on the floor at the dealer....so it was under some pretty harsh lighting. The color inside was gorgeous....loved it.
I went back a week later and saw the same bike outside on a bright sunny day. The thing i noticed the most was how, depending on the angle and light, it would change color. I saw everything from almost black, to a pinkish-purple.
Some people love that about it....but for me, it was a bit of a turn-off. Being fortunate enough to see a cherry CC and a skull CC sitting outside side-by-side really helped in making my decision.
I want to take some pics of it tomorrow if the weather cooperates...we'll see. Most of all, I can't wait to ride again!

I agree...
The skull theme is way different/better in person than in a pic. Glad you found
the right one for you.
Congrats!

Great looking bike. I saw the Skull bike at Arlen Ness when they got their first bike. The graphics are very nice. Arlen kept it for himself and was going to paint the graphics so that the skulls where more of a ghost effect.
I pick up my Black Cherry CC on Sunday. Finally!!!!! Can't wait to start putting miles on it. Enjoy.
