Great Bike! I bought this (sight unseen) after test riding a 2010 Victory Cross Country. The Cross Country rode extremely well but the transmission was noisy in a couple of gears and the buffeting was almost unbearable. From what I understand you can get lowers and a different windshield to eliminate this.
My wife rides with me about 90% of the time and has never complained about the seat or bumps.
I suggest a least test riding a Victory before deciding on another brand.
It's tough to beat the price considering you get a 106 and 6-speed with standard cruise! The quality is great, the price is great, the dealerships are easy to work with. Aftemarket is a little weak but it is getting better.
Upgrades/Accessories: Passenger Backrest (largest on the market without having to get a trunk), Highway bar closeouts (keep you legs warm even in the 30's), communication system (Sena SHM-10 - also highly recommended).
