I've had more people admire my vision than any other bike I've ever owned. People have waited for me to come out of restaurants and stores to ask about my bike and how I liked it. Some of these people owned newer harleys. So your opinion sounds more like you have been polarized to blind yourself to a brand of motorcycle. That's to bad!

"Spaceship" is the common meme Harley guys have been using to describe Victories for some time now. Sooner of later you'll run into one.

My stepson is one. I run into him every day. He admits that victories are better bikes. But he won't go down to the dealer with me to look at any. It's just stupid!

Caught up in the Harley hype...! Peer pressure is a strong motivational force and Harley's greatest selling point.

I love the Vision but won't buy one (even though both my extended test rides were pure joy) because the front end looks like a Winnebago and I feel that I should be a geriatric to ride one.

I hope they lose the Winnebago front end and create a more cutting edge style...

Attachment 8964 How can you not like the clean look of the front end, I wanted to get one it was just out of my price range. So I bought the Vegas. They are holding there value too. Not like other makes I have owned.

Um, I know this has been seen before, and it will probably piss somebody off. That's not my intent, and I am considering buying one this spring, because I am at the point that function is more important that form, when it comes to bikes. But this is the struggle....

I bet if you painted the front end to look like Bozo, you'd have the most looked at bike on bike night.

The mental visual of Bozo painted on the front of a Vision is stuck in my head like a song you can't get out of your head. If someone with a great sense of humor did what Saddlebag said there is no question in my mind the bike would be the center of attention.
