Sorry for th quick hijack.
I'd be interested on your take on the comparison of the GTL to your Victory. Both the GTL and the Cross Roads Tour are on my short list for potential next bikes, primarily because of more 2 up riding. Wife thinks my RT is a bit cramped. However, I have never owned a cruiser.
To the OP, have you considered waiting a bit for the new water cooled GS and then building it up with GSA type farkles.
