Just pulled the trigger on a 2018 Transcontinental Tour model. Will pick it up on Tuesday 30 July 2019. Had the dealer include BAM Sticks with Zombie baffles and tuner which they will install in a week or so. Do a lot of 2 up riding with the wife. Anything specific I need to know about the bike? Came off of a 2014 Victory Cross Country Tour with 87,500 miles.

Welcome from Houston, Texas. Congrats on your new ride. There's many SVTC owners here and I'm sure they will chime in. Here's a few interesting threads to check out when you get a chance.

Ride often and safe.

Welcome from Atlantic Canada and congrats. Like Les said, we have a growing number of SVTC owners here who will be more than happy to impart their knowledge and answer any question that may come up.I believe the general concensus is that it's an amazing bike and I don't think any of them regret buying it. We'd love to see a pic when you get it.
