Surprises started when we settled into the Victory's saddle and discovered that it was unexpectedly hard and narrow, a far cry from the V92C seat we were so fond of. However, the frame's extra length is also apparent in the seat's significant roominess, and more leg room than the other three baggers. We were pleasantly surprised that the harsh ride from the from the plain V92C's rear suspension has been smoothed out substantially on this machine. When you are riding solo, it is still somewhat taut, but with a passenger and luggage, it is just right. Unfortunately, the front suspension hasn't been similarly tamed, and road irregularities come through quite forcefully, slapping your hands on sharper bumps. The TC also drew milder complaints about vibration, which is apparent at highway speeds and gets to some riders as the day wears on, though most rated it as noticeable but not irritating. However, all of our riders bitched about the tall windshield. Though it parts the air effectively, and the "lowers" keep wind off your legs even better than the Nomad's, the fact that you couldn't see over it becomes an issue as soon as the first bug, raindrop of bit of dust hits it hear you line of vision. We believe that windshields you can't see over are a serious safety issue and a source of fatigue, and we caution anyone who plans to take a long ride with one. One area that received top marks was the back seat, where the vast expanse of upholstery, a backrest, and a pleasing position drew undiluted praise. The TC has more front-to-rear room on its passenger saddle than any other cruiser, which passengers heartily commended. A little vibration or slightly stiff padding paled in the face of this unprecedented spaciousness and flexibility. The one complaint from passengers, echoed by riders, was that in stop-and-go traffic engine heat became oppressive, making the side-panel area almost painfully hot.
