If at some point you decide to fashion a nice classic cruise bike in your garage, why don’t you try heading over to Victory and give the Cross Roads a look. As an extremely smooth, powerful, and comfortable touring model, the Cross Roads offers plenty of options that allow the rider to tailor this motorcycle for any type of touring.

As a customized maven, Victory offers over 48 custom combinations for the Cross Roads, which you can use to put your own stamp of originality on it. You can choose color, saddlebags, windshield, and specific tip-over protection that says ‘Here is a bike like no other, fitting its rider’s every want and need."

For the 2012 model, the Cross Roads looks just how you want it with the performance credentials to back it up. Powering the bike is the popular Freedom 106 V-Twin engine that produces a mighty impressive 109 lb/ft of torque. Mated to this engine is a high-performing six-speed overdrive transmission that receives the power generated by the massive V-twin and seamlessly turns it into something you can use.

Maybe you should stick to golf.... I am not Harley only LOL. I tend to know what looks good though, and Victory’s do not.

Interesting comment planar, considering Victory came out with the Cross-Roads before Harley released the Switchback, do your homework before posting innacurate comments, your Harley-only mentality is showing through, nothing like ancient technology for inspiration.

That is a horribly ugly rip-off of the new Harley Switchback.
