Found an '08 Vision Tour Premium in Midnight Cherry at the local Indian dealer (St. Paul). Added it to the stable along with the '08 Kingpin Tour. Hope to learn a few new things about the Vision on the forum and enjoy the ride. Will take the wife out on her first Vision ride this Sunday. At 12K miles, it's just getting broke in.

She loves the Vison!! She is a little emotional about selling the Kingpin. I have it on Craigslist (Minneapolis). We took the Kingpin around Lake Superior, Lake Michigan, and down to St. Louis. The Vision has so much more comfort for her. She turned the seat heaters on during the last ride (always cold). She appreciates the extra width between the passenger hand holds also.

Welcome back KPR.
Your Vision should serve you well. I have owned my '13 Vision for about 15 months and it has a mere 16500 miles on it. I think it is the best bike I have ever owned.

Present ride - 2013 Victory Vision, black, ATW at +3, Lloydz air filter and adjustable intake, PC5, 30,xxx miles

Thanks! The Midnight Cherry color has always been my favorite. Just didn't happen when my first Victory came along at the right price in black and chrome. This Premium model seems to have a bit of extra chrome on it also. Driving every day to work.

The Midnight Cherry color is sweet. Don't have a lot of miles on my'13 but they are nice to ride. :-)

Long may you ride!

I ride at about the same pace, about 1000 miles per month. Up to 14500 now.
