@ gfolkert - Personalizing one's motorcycle is part & parcel of the experience, as I am sure you are aware. Is your Roadie stone stock? Yeah, I didn't think so.
I am satisfied with the 41mpg average my Roadie gets - I just want the revs dropped a bit at highway speeds - a personal preference, not a judgment on others who like lower gearing for quicker light-to-light acceleration.
If I had money to burn I probably would "go get a Harley" but not a Victory - again, personal preference - I don't particularly care for the way most of the Victory line looks.
I acquired my Roadie quite cheap and have less than 1/4 of the price of a new Glide or Soft-tail in it, and it runs quite well, easily outperforming stock Harleys - at least the ones I've had the chance to run against.
My original post was simply out of curiosity to see if anyone else had pondered raising the gearing slightly to lower rpms
at highway speeds.
Apparently, this isn't an easy modification for a Roadie and isn't sought out by many riders.
It looks like acquiring a Raider 66 tooth rear pulley and most likely a narrower belt would work, but a 4 tooth drop might prove to be too much and the conversion wouldn't be inexpensive. Oh well, I'll just have to continue enjoying my R as it is for now...until this winter
