2011 Victory MotorcycleVictory keeps it simple with the Cross Roads, a fairing-free bagger, but that doesn’t mean it lacks the features you need to ride from coast-to- coast.
Large integrated bags, a dual seat and driver floorboards are there for comfort. The undersquare Freedom 106/6 motor has the torque you want and the convenience of a six-speed transmission.Optional aluminum or steel highway bars double as low-speed tipover protection, and inverted 43mm forks, a 130mm Dunlop Elite 3 tire, and dual 300mm floating brake rotors highlight the Cross Roads’ beefy front end. 2011 Victory Cross Roads Quick Specs

This week, Senior Editor Nic de Sena rides the all new Ducati Monster. Big changes have been made by Ducati–has the company ruined the considerable heritage of the iconic Monster–or are the changes worth it? In the second part of the show, we chat with Nick Ienatsch, Founder and Head Instructor at the Yamaha Champions Riding School. He says: “We aim to change your riding life by introducing you to Champions Habits: The techniques, approaches, skills, and the mindsets of the best riders in the world. These Champions Habits are the foundation of safety and consistency to whatever speed you ride, in any venue on any bike. Street riders, this is just as much for you as track riders. The best way to make safe riders is to make good riders.“ We hope you enjoy this episode!
