There's been an influx of new members to the Riders sites and I just wanted to extend a welcome and urge you to participate! The sites are open and free, we just ask that you register and participate!

If you have a question about Victorys, most likely someone here has an answer. You'll find the members helpful and courteous. We ask that you be the same.

I urge you to post photos of your bike, your bike trips and introduce yourself.

You can also create your own profile, blog and riding groups (or join ones already created) on our sister website, the Victory Riders Network.

Here are some blogs from Bums on Bikes. They are from New Zealand and took off a year to ride two Visions across the US and Europe and back across the US. They had the Visions shipped to Europe and back to the US and......when the trip was done, had them shipped home to NZ.

Greetings fellow Visionary's!

I'm new here so I thought I'd introduce myself. My name is Paul and I've just moved (6 months ago) to the beautiful oil covered Gulf Coast....Lillian, Alabama. I live just across the Bay from Pensecola, FL (I can see FL from my front porch). I think I'm going to love it here, with the 12 month a year riding season and all *grin*.

I'm currently dividing my riding time between a 2008 Midnight Cherry Vision and a 2005 Yamaha Road Star Midnight Custom. But I've found that I like the Vision so much the Road Star in now for sale!!!

I've already read through much of the site and am excited to have this resource available and getting to know some of y'all. If any of you live in this general area, let me know.

Welcome to you 'New Members' and thanks for joining our group. Please feel free to chime in with your comments and questions...Remember, there are no stupid questions. We were all new to motorcycles and Visions at some point in time and had many unanswered questions. This board has a lot of seasoned members and even 'Techs' that hang here regularly. I have found it to be a wealth of information and 99.99% of the time a very friendly group.

Enjoy your bike and stop by this forum regularly or you will miss something of real value that will improve your motorcycling experience!

Hello and looking forward to be part of this. I have a new 2008 Vision Premium that I bought off the showroom floor last September. Then had neck surgery so only have 3800 miles on it. Taking off to the Grand Canyon on 19 day trip starting Labor Day. Just picked up a N-Line trailer and looking forward to see how that tows. I welcome any suggestions on routes through, and over, the mountains....Grand Rapids, MI.

Hi There, we live in the beautiful, sunny South Africa, proud owners of 2008 Vision(Black). Currently there are only three Visions in all of Africa (all three of them in South Africa I must add). We live in Johannesburg, the other two Visions (both Midnight Cherry)are owned by a guy in Cape Town and another guy in the North west region of South Africa respectively.
We just absolutely LOVE our Vision, although it seems that sometimes I cannot decide which is better, my Vision or the wife's Kingpin
If you guys really want do do some awesome riding, come to South Africa, where you can have great mountain passes, long stretches of open road, quaint and quiet villages, the hussle and bustle of cities, wildlife, great scenery, cities & towns along the coast with good roads, and sometimes (in some regions) experience all four seasons in one day

I never properly introduced myself, so here it goes. My name is Wayne. I'm married with two wonderful young boys. I started riding in the spring of 09 on a 105 Ann. 1200 Custom Sportster. I loved that bike, put almost 7000 miles on it. It was small, top heavy, vibrated, shook, road like crap, got bad gas mileage for a small motor, and I still miss it. I wanted a bigger bike but wanted black and different. Then the wife realized all the fun she was missing out on and decided to start riding with me. She liked the Vision as much as I did, a deal was made, and on Sep. 8 10 I became the proud owner of a 10 Vision 8Ball. To date we have a little over 3000 miles on it. If anyone in the NE Ga area wnts to ride let me know.

Welcome gammaqueen. We will be back in NC the first weekend of October. Staying at the Iron Horse Motorcycle Lodge again.
Last year we took a rather spirited ride over the Dragon and Chewohalla Skyway with a few guys.
Did part of the Blue Ridge also with a larger group.
This year we are staying in the Rocky Top cabin.

Hello all, My name is Rob, I own a 2010 Cross Country, purchased almost a year ago, here in MA. Just joined the site yesterday. Have added a few things to the bike. Ipod and different grips when ordered. Since I have installed the flip windshield and lowers, what a difference that makes. Chrome gas cap, highway pegs. And waiting impatiently on my D&D slip ons and Lloydz fuel controller and will be installing that this weekend. Bought the bike at MOM's. Anyone else here in MA, give me a shout. That's all I got for now.

Howdy all, my name is Erik. I live in Hershey, PA and have 3 small ones... one's 5 and the other two are almost 3. I have been riding since I was 17, got my class M when I turned 18 (parents' rules... not mine). I own/love a 2010 Vision 8-Ball, and cannot get gas or park without someone asking me about it. This is, without a doubt, the best ride I've ever owned, and I've had my share of 'em!!! Only "mod" I've made so far is switching the Blade windscreen for a Tall (I'm 6'4", the stock just wasn't cuttin' the mustard).

Bikes owned in the past:
'06 Triumph Sprint ST w/ABS
'06 Kawasaki Vulcan 900
'01 Kawasaki Vulcan Drifter
'98 Honda Magna
'91 Harley FatBoy (first/last HD)
'81 Kawasaki KZ1300 (my dad was killed on this bike, '95)
'79 Suzuki GS1000L (first bike, wish I still had her... took her to college with me)

Will post pics soon.

My wife will not ride with me... so I'm looking for any groups around here as we're sorta new to the area!

Hello to everyone. My name is Brian. I just recently found this site. I spend a lot of time on another Victory site. I fell in love with the Hammer the 1st time I saw one. I couldn't afford one at the time so I started out with a 2009 Vulcan 900 Custom. Great bike but it wasn't what I wanted. Now that I have my Hammer I love it. I've had it since June of 2009. I'm hoping to learn more about the brand and give out what little advice I can.

It's a 2009. I bought it as a left-over. When I went into the dealer it was originally all black. I couldn't quite pull the trigger on it so they sweetened the pot by saying they would swap all of the tins with the 2010 sitting right beside it for no extra cost. That sealed the deal for me. I put pictures of it in the gallery.

My name is James and I bought an 06 Jackpot in September 2010. Forums, reviews, and the look and the style of the bike sold the brand when I started looking for a cruiser. I bought my JP on Ebay from a Chevy dealer in NJ (I live in Hampton Roads VA). My first ride on it was the 400 mile trek home after deciding to pick the bike up rather than ship it. I've been in love with the bike ever since. I've put about 5000 miles on the bike in 8 months, nearly doubling the mileage since I bought it. I know I made the right choice and plan to enjoy this bike for years to come.

I have posted on here once before but never posted here. I am the winner of the Spring Victory contest and should be getting my 2011 Vision Tour this week.

I live in the Mennonite lands of central PA and currently ride a 2007 Suzuki Boulevard C50. Well thats a stretch really my son and I ride the Boulevard. He's only 11 but now that his feet fit the pegs he goes out with me. Which is why I chose the Vision Tour. So that he had a comfortable perch for the longer rides.

Bikes I've owned previously were a 93 Suzuki GS500E from 2001-2007 and before that a 80 Honda CB650C. The plan is to ride the wheels off of the new one

I thought I'd say hello....Picked up my new 2010 Vision 8 ball today. Only managed to get 120 miles on it, but it really rides nice. My previous experience with Victory wasn't so hot.....I had a 2004 Touring Cruiser Deluxe and it was absolutely the worst motorcycle I've owned....took six years to blot out the one year and the 12,000 miles I put on it. Looking forward to a much better experience with the 8 Ball. The five year warranty did give me some comfort. )

Should be a mandatory when you join you have to post pitchers of your bike. That cause I never get tired of looking at the vision.

Hey all, been reading many post for about a month, never posted. This site is dangerous, got to many ideas from everyone. From Mass. Have an 08 midnight cherry Vision. Bike is totally stripped down naked right now, Just had bike lowered 2", shorter kickstand, skid plate, inner bags cut to accomodate lowering, Front lights blacked out, rear lights black cherry, hawg wired stereo (all from HMD) installed D&D slash cut pipes, Lloyds cams, intake system, fuel controller, idle air valve, Muth turn signals, Ness low seat, chrome fairing, side cover, rear tip overs, and rear valence, custom finned engine covers, custom brake and clutch covers, and in the process of having air brushed. All this in the last 2 months. Ya think I'm excited for spring time or what! Will post pictures if I can put it all together again. Please don't give me any more ideas, it's not even January yet.

Newbie on this forum but have been riding since 1970 and once owned a 2004 Kingpin. I just got back to Victory last Friday when I traded in another make & model for a new 2012 Cross Country in the Red & Silver two-tone. Five days and over 200 miles into owning this bike all I can say is Sweeeeet!!

Hey, neighbor! I'm also a new Victory rider (2012 Vision, Sunset Red) and I'm also in North FL. Been riding all my life and am fortunate to own a few other really nice rides (including 1 brand X).

I live in Ferrnandina Beach, maybe we can meet up some time. Also looking forward to catching up with as many others as I can as we are out enjoying the ride. Happy Thanksgiving to all!

Hey Everyone, Whalebone here I am new to this forum I just bough g it home so 2011 Vision today and I am having a little work done on it before I bring it home. I will pick it up this weekend and I will start wearing it out then. It was sold to me as a new bike even though it is a 2011. This is somewhere around my 38th bike I have been riding since the early 1970's/ I traded in my 2007 Vstrom on the Vision. I have slowed down a little I only keep one or two bikes at a time anymore.

I live on Camano Island in Northwest Washington, I enjoy motorcycles, live music, fresh air and good food.

Hope to see you on the road

hello all, new member here. I took delivery of my 13 XC in Sunset Red over the weekend and put a quick 200 miles on her. I really love this bike, everything and more I could ever want. I also own a 2011 Yamaha Stryker that I have totally customized. The great thing about this bike is it has everything so I doubt I'll be doing much.

Hi all, just registered on the site. Bought a 2013 Vision yesterday in black. Traded my 08 Suzuki C109. I live in the far west burbs of Chicago so riding is still a few weeks away. Actually having the bike trailered to me, still too much salt on the roads. I am really looking forward to riding this bike. I sit on it and it's as though it was built for me. I have been reading about this thing for a year, hope it lives up to the praise that it gets.

I too am new to the site as well as to Victory. I was originally looking to purchase a HD Ultra Glide. My cousin just happened to be at the Victory dealer purchasing 2 new Yamaha jet skis (Dealership - motorcycles, quads and jet skis). We were going to meet at the dealership and then head out to a Harley dealer to see what kind of deal I could get. Thanks to my cousins advise, I checked out the Victory Cross Country and Vision. It took me all of 15 minutes to change my mind. That day I put a deposit on a 2013 Vision. My bike came in last week and the dealer is waiting on the chrome options I ordered along with the trunk rack, luggage liners, airhorn and GPS.

I can't wait for the weather to cooperate so I can take the bike out on its maiden voyage. If there are any riders that live in the Hartford CT area please let me know.

I presently am riding a 2011 HD FLTRU, not a Victory of any kind. I am using my membership here to investigate the Victory, especially the Vision line for my future riding needs. If I find that the vision suits me, I will be in a completely different mode. If I do not find that to be the case, I am also very serious about the Yamaha Venture series of bikes. I have no particular loyalty to the Victory series bikes so I will be evaluating one bike against the other with no particular prejudice. One thing that I have seen so far in favor of the Victory is the net weight load limits. A Victory seems to have a huge passenger weight and luggage weight total advantage over my former preference, a Yamaha Venture. If that proves true with no other mitigating factors, I will soon be a Victory customer, but I have yet to get any true indication that my evaluations are right.

Ride them both down the freeway, through some hills and curves, and over some rough railroad crossings. Then come back and tell us how much you like your new Vision.

Hello all. I've been looking into the Vision as my next daily ride. Currently I ride an ST1100, but have always wanted to own an American bike, but have had too many friends with Harleys in the shop. I had assumed Vision was in that bracket as well until I stumbled across an article about the reliability of the new Victory's.

I'm hoping to catch one of the demo rides sometime this year. They styling on the Vision is really what drew me. Maybe a few too many electronic gadgets, but man... it's one cool looking bike. And with the MPGs and reliability where I need my bike to be, I'm really hoping this will be the bike I want it to be.

Thanks for having me.

Welcome rcb.

I believe you will find the reliability and the fuel mileage of the Victory Vision to be on par with the Honda Goldwing or your ST1100. Well, maybe not the fuel mileage of the ST1100. You can usually count on 40+ MPG on the Vision.

Thanks. Yeah 40mpg is my minimum requirement. I remember seeing one when they first came out and assumed it was getting mid to low 30s. Actually there were a lot of assumptions that had to be dispelled.

Low to mid 40s for fuel mileage is pretty common with the Victory Vision when out on the road. The 6 speed transmission gives a true overdrive in 6th which allows the engine to turn only 2650 RPM at 70 MPH. 5th gear on the Vision is close to 5th gear (advertised as "overdrive") on the Goldwing, which turns 3000 RPM at 70 MPH. 3000 RPM on the Vision in 6th gear is 80 MPH. Mine actually gets its best economy running about 75 MPH (unless there's a stiff headwind). Add a little tailwind, and mid 40s at 80 MPH isn't uncommon.

Went for a ride today to one of our favorite spots - on a beach near the U.S. border - where there is always a PARADE of cars and bikes up and down the promenade. We have lunch and watch the parade. Where dozens (hundreds?) of Harleys & Wannabe's motor by as we enjoy some of the best fish & chips in the world. They all have loud pipes and are very polished. But NONE of them could TOUCH my Vision in handling or performance. Makes my lunch MORE enjoyable. I know this to be true - I ain't afraid to have a go against anyone - ANYTHING - even at my somewhat advanced age. So I know what I say is TRUE !!!!

Hello all. I've been looking into the Vision as my next daily ride. Currently I ride an ST1100, but have always wanted to own an American bike, but have had too many friends with Harleys in the shop. I had assumed Vision was in that bracket as well until I stumbled across an article about the reliability of the new Victory's.

I'm hoping to catch one of the demo rides sometime this year. They styling on the Vision is really what drew me. Maybe a few too many electronic gadgets, but man... it's one cool looking bike. And with the MPGs and reliability where I need my bike to be, I'm really hoping this will be the bike I want it to be.

Thanks for having me.


Don't test ride one unless you brought you wallet. Happened to me. :D
I like the Vision styling. It is 100% different than anything else on the road. And it handles great, is fast and reliable and good mileage too. I'm averaging 43 MPG so far.

Hi All!!
Just wanted to drop by and say hey. I've been lurking for a week or so and like the board. I just recently (almost 2 weeks ago) bought a '13 Victory Vision. this is my second bike, my first is a '07 Honda Shadow Aero. Boy big difference when riding the Vision LOL. I will use the Vision as my weekend ride, my gf likes it better when we ride 2-up, gee I wonder why LOL.

me and my babies

Greetings, I also am a "newbie" with a 2008 Vision Tour. Bought in June and have just under 5900 miles on my "1st wife (according to my wife)" It is by far the best bike I have had thus far.

Matt, Hello I am Jussely, Eddie I purchased my Vision 3 months after you posted this , but I was a Ms resident, so after a month or so I decided that I wanted to take a little road trip and went to the J-action area to visit the family..... Great ride from somewhere between Tallahasee and Jacksonville Florida our capital of Ms. I am looking forward to the next time I can do the trip!

Oldman47 - 2013-03-05 8:57 PM I presently am riding a 2011 HD FLTRU, not a Victory of any kind. I am using my membership here to investigate the Victory, especially the Vision line for my future riding needs. If I find that the vision suits me, I will be in a completely different mode. If I do not find that to be the case, I am also very serious about the Yamaha Venture series of bikes. I have no particular loyalty to the Victory series bikes so I will be evaluating one bike against the other with no particular prejudice. One thing that I have seen so far in favor of the Victory is the net weight load limits. A Victory seems to have a huge passenger weight and luggage weight total advantage over my former preference, a Yamaha Venture. If that proves true with no other mitigating factors, I will soon be a Victory customer, but I have yet to get any true indication that my evaluations are right.

Just an update - I rode one and now I own one with 7150 miles on it since mid-May. The FLTRU is history. My mods include the timing wheel, passenger arm rests and lower air controls.

Well Guess it is time to jump in here my name is Tom and I am an official HD convert. After many years of looking at the Victory line I got on one for the first time last September looking for options on moving up in years from my then touring model. As they say: "Ride One, You Will Own One" As I say: True story!! Made the jump and not looking back for one second. Absolutely love my Vision for the comfort and power plant it provides. Not to mention everyone that walks by has to stop and ask about my Vision. Even the SOBs (some other brand) owners have very little bad to say about it.

Anyone need some used tee shirts........LOL

As other have said the information here is an outstanding resource and big thank you to those that provide so much insight!

Hi everybody,
I'm the proud owner of a Hammer S 2012
I live and ride in Gran Canaria, Canary Islands, Spain
as far as my knowledge , there's the only one Hammer riding here, in fact I think there're only five, maybe six Vics in the islands.
I was a HD ( for twenty years) rider, until I tested the Victory cruisers . I use to ride between 300 km - 500 km per week, I use to say that the bike is my personal trainer.
Sorry about my poor english due is not my born language.
Best regards

Howdy!

New Vision just north of Fort Worth.
Rode the Demo Tour and had to own one. Picked up the 2013 Vision two weeks ago and love it! Fixed the mirrors and added mud flaps so far.

Madrid, --- Spain
Its time to introduce myself: I live in Madrid (Spain) and bought, two weeks ago the first Victory Vision bike, imported into Spain by Polaris back in July 2010. It's Cherryred, in inmaculate condition and now has only 32.000kms. It came with some extras like (1) lower air deflectors, (2) reverse gear, (3) GPS, (4) oil temperature stick, (5) stage one exhaust, (6) chrome front tipover protection and the (7) fairing rubber toe kick protector.
Regards to everybody.

I'm a new 2013 Vision owner for about 3 months and 2,000 miles. I've been on thie website on a daily basis to learn as much as I can about this incredible bike. After the first 500 miles, I had Arlen Ness put on the Big Honkers, frt/top perf filter, PCV and Autotune. The bike is like going from a scooter to a bike after the mods. It definitely have better low and mid range power now, but still nothing compared to a sports tourer. The pipes are a little louder than I expected, but I'm use to them now.
Out here in sunny northern California, I've taken the bike out when it was 36 degrees and the weather protection is phenomenal. Sorry, that's considered pretty cold here in CA.
Does anyone know how often the PCV and/or Autotune needs to be adjusted?

It's 6 degrees out and snow is on the ground, and I just became the owner of a new Cross Country Tour! It hasn't been prepped yet and until the weather improves I'll wait sort of patiently while the guys at 3A Motors put on the Premium Tour taller windshield, passenger grab handles, drivers backrest, and install the reverse kit.

I did get a 5 mile road test on it a few days ago when the weather warmed into the 30s here in MA. It seemed to be everything I want and the batwing really made for a turbulence free ride.

The one challenge I can see is to get some custom mods on the passenger seat area, raising it up 2-3 inches so my short wife can see over my tall shoulders and get a forward view.

Glad to be here,
Joe

Hi all. I just picked up my '12 Vision last weekend in Denton TX. I've been wanting one since they came out but have just always had something else. Joined a while back so I could lurk, now finally have the bike. Will be selling a Yamaha Venture.

Well I suppose I need to post a picture of my ride here. The first picture was when I first got it heading towards the North Shore of Lake Superior (Spooner, WI). Oh yea that oil spot under it was from the HD that left just before I landed for some gas!! Then I found this artist here in North Texas that is nationally known for his work. He was the voice of the Monster Truck Jam for years and painted the original Grave Digger trucks. Well Tex talked me out of my bike for a month just got it back today!!

I'm officially part of the forum now I guess. Been lurking and looking for awhile. A good friend and fellow rider is on his second Vision. I had a chance to see a Vision up close and ride with a Vision rider for a few years. He is also knowledgable and someone who knows his way around a motorcycle. I bought a 2008 Vision April 2013. I have enjoyed every (s)mile I've put on the bike. Had 9000 mile on it. Has 16200 on it now. So that's it. Glad to be here.

ljurgens, I live in your area. If your Vision is orange, I bet I've seen you on the road.

Just ask.

If you want to, you can hit the "New Post" button at the top of the page and start a new thread with the details of your bike and any problems. The more specific you are with what you've done to your bike, and the conditions leading up to your plug fouling problem, the better the responses will be.

Hi Everyone, I'm new to the forum and to Victory. I have been looking at new HD and Victory bikes all winter long. Finally last week, I pulled the trigger and purchased a 2013 Arlen Ness Victory Vision. It's currently at the dealer getting the S1L1 kit installed. Looking forward to nice weather and many (s)miles ahead.

Do you hit the throttle after starting your Vegas? This will foul the plugs very quickly. Start the bike without touching the throttle. Turn the key on and wait until you here the fuel pump prime the system, then start. Let it idle and warm up properly before revving it. (EFI motor)

I love the Orange, but mine is solid Black. Bought it right before the snow started falling last fall, so I've only got 750 miles on her so far. I was out cruising this past Saturday though!

BTW, we need a photo of your Vision for proof ;-)

Welcome!

Lots of us have more than one bike and more than one Victory.

The others tend to get neglected after we get a Vision.

Hello, I'm a sort of new guy here. I guess I registered back in 2009 when I bought my Jackpot. I've come around from time to time but this is my first post. While I know there are other networks I always felt this site was mainly geared toward Vision riders. Well, tonight after work I will become a Vision rider so figure I should introduce myself and start participating! I will be bringing home a new 2013 Nuclear Sunset Vision this evening after work! I've done a lot of riding on my Jackpot but I am looking forward to all the creature comforts, better handling and weather protection the Vision has! I've already used the information here to order some led's to add to the back for a 3rd brake light and turn signals. So I already have to say thank you for the great information!

Thanks,
Chris

Hey! from Western NC. Been a long time rider and just traded my BMW RT for a 2014 Cross Country Classic.

Enjoyed getting the "break-in" miles completed on the Blue Ridge Pkwy this weekend. I get the first service done Tuesday and on Friday I head out on a trip through the Ozarks, Smoky's and then up through New England.

Thanks for the great tips from members here as I needed to get things sorted quickly. I'll post some photos
as I match my Luddite skills with the site's secret handshake...

Cheers

Mick, welcome aboard, the board. I hope you enjoy your ride and would like to hear you share your experience. I use to be very active on this board, but many of those who I enjoyed bantering with have apparently gone off to other things. Mostly the board became a debate for oil and tires, just like many other forums become. You will still find useful maintenance tips and discussion, so don't be afraid to throw a post out there looking for information or just to discuss something. Others will say many have gone to Facebook, but there again, many of the threads I find on Facebook is talking about oil and tires, car tires that is, a very boring subject to many. There are a lot of good people here that will give an honest answer to many of the questions you might have, will encourage you in trouble, and share in your Victory!

Hey Mick, welcome to the Victory family. I saw that you already found the Hammer Riders site. Enjoy the new bike, and if I can, I would suggest that one day you also treat yourself to another kind of riding experience on a Vision.

G'day brothers ( sisters too, so they don't feel left out) If you haven't guessed I'm form OZ Our Sydney dealer has a saying to every potential customer that walks through the door. It is, Ride one and you'll own one. Well I took that as a challenge and needless to say within a week I had sold my beloved GSX1400 and was picking up the most AWESOME bike on God's creation. It is a 2014 Hammer S LE No:010 in pearl white and matte black. I have just put a set of Freedom Performance pipes on and a Hi flow filter. Thanks guys for the forum.

Hey everyone, I'm new to the forum but not Victory. I just picked up a 2011 Cross Country to replace my 03 V92 Deluxe. I have not ridden it much so the anxiety is already there for Spring to get here. Gonna be about 8 weeks till I get to ride again unless I get lucky.

Just joined up after buying a "new" 2012 Victory Vision Tour w/640 miles on the clock. So far 2100 miles and I am very impressed with this bike after owning almost everything else since 1958 when I began riding. Hope to get lots of trouble free miles and smiles out of this unit.

Good Morning,

Retired US Navy ETC(SW). Westcoast Sailor. Gators, Carriers and Detroyers.

Proud owner of a used 2009 midnight cherry Vision Tour w 24k miles in October, well 30k now .
I have already upgraded my air filter and added a top filter.
Further mods for this weekend include WD slip on mufflers and a Weisco FMC.

I love the riding season (11 months/year) here in N. Fort Worth,Texas. I ride everyday as long there is no ice.
I ride to ride, no destination, as long as the wife tells me to get out of the house.

Have seen a few Victorys in the area. Mostly XC but meh I am not one to judge. :P

Keep frosty and out of the port or starboard quarters of those Accords. Because he/she is on the phone and cant check her mirrors!!!

Glad to be here, I've already learned a few things in just a few days of perusing the posts. I pick up a new 2016 Vision in blue, on Friday, 12May from the Victory dealer in Metuchen, NJ. Great deal and they seem like nice folks to work with, so far. Riding the "Uncle Joe" express up there (Amtrak) to be able to ride it home. Anyway, I read the break-in posts, so I'll vary the speed and take side roads once I make it back into DE.

I will try to post a photo once I get a chance to do so. Bob

New Vision owner here. Recently purchased a 2009 Alen Ness #119. The original owner took off the original body panels and seat and purchased the solid black ones when the bike was new a trunk and a Corbin seat which I received in the purchase. Never considered a Victory before mush less a Vision, but something about the solid black grabbed me. Been riding for fourth years and have sport bikes, dirt bikes, dualsport bikes and adventure bikes; but never had a cruiser before.
I went to a Harley demo day 2 years ago and rode 2 Road Glides with and without the tour pack. All I thought was what a evil handling pig.

So over the the last year I have been riding with some guys at work who have Harley's while I have been riding my Yamaha Super Tenere. Have to admit those guy went down a few dirt roads with me including going through a foot deep water crossing; ok it was a two track trail with water a foot deep for about a half mile.
So I started looking at bikes and read some reviews about Visions, and found a used on at a dealer where I could test ride one. I was not intending to buy it, I just wanted to see how they rode. Well I bought it. Even with crap tires, I was shocked one how it handled.

Anyhow been surfing around here, downloaded a few things and have been reading up. Modes the mufflers with the Magnaflows, ordered new tires and scored a set of factory heated grips from eBay. Now just waiting for the snow to leave to do some riding.
