Wink Vision style

I see posts on here about the looks of the vision from other motorcycle owners, and thats fine with me, but in the last month I have had two people tell me the same thing, one rode A 'busa and A concours, the the other guy rides A Harley, they both said all motorcycles have style, but most of them are the same style, the vision, their words not mine, has A style all its own, beautiful. So if you cross bike riders want to ride something that looks A lot all the other brand of cruisers, then more power to you.


Pun intended

Two weeks of Vision riding and it's surprising the number of compliments and curious folks. Never seem to leave the gas pump without a conversation.

And that can be a problem during IBA rides. Lol. I'm perfectly fine with those that hate it find it curiously appealing or like it. I found myself a little biffed the other day when I seen a Vision coming out of my sub division. WTH? Was ready to chase him out, er ah I mean down.

I love my. TC just as much (never did get around to selling it) but the Vision is unique and I do like the riding it every day. I like frosted mini wheats too

Er...what's the point of this thread now? I'm sort of confused, because it kinda seems like the OP is implying that the Vision is the only Victory worth having because it looks like nothing else.

Personally I think the Vision's a pretty cool bike. Don't have a bad word to say about it. Vision owners love their scoots.

I also think that even though many other Victory designs are conventional, I wouldn't necessarily call them "copies." They're conventional, but very obviously unique.

Is this where we're at now? Bored of grousing about Harleys so we're gonna start cutting up our own faction for "us versus them" threads?

You can call me Billy. Or Luci. But don't call me Shirley.

Mine:
2011 Cross Roads, crimson red
Lloyd'z ATS, IAV, VFC-III. Vic "High Performance" air filter. Ness Big Honkers. Funsies.

Hers
2015 Vegas 8-Ball

I understand what your saying and in my opinion victory has the best line of bikes out there. What I do not understand is why they made a choice not to upgrade the vision or add to the bike in anyway. kind of sad. nor do they promote it for real even when I go to the demo's they are always promoting the XC and the vision a lot of the times is last in the line. They are making a big mistake in that area.
