Default I did it! I got a vision!

After months of looking at all manufactures bike I bought a 2013 Vision in red. The best dealer I dealt with from any manufacture. The big boys would just say well can't be done. The Victory dealer moved the foot controls all the way forward just to see if I would like it. Went to Daytona and took test drive and got $1,000 certificate off the price. I am going back to Daytona fron Orlanda with my group on Thursday.

Congrats! That's one beast of a bike. Ride safely, and welcome to the Vic family.

Please add your bike's year and model to your signature. Here's why.

Blest with victory and peace, may the heav'n rescued land
Praise the Power that hath made and preserved us a nation.
Then conquer we must, when our cause it is just,
And this be our motto: "In God is our trust."
And the star-spangled banner in triumph shall wave
O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave!

Congrats man! From one Vision rider to another, you will not be sorry. IMHO it is the best handling bike in the Victory lineup. Find a quiet. Parking lot and play awhile. You will be amazed.

ATGATT because walking away in disgust is better than riding away in an ambulance.

Never get to busy making a living that you forget to make a life.

Well done oldrider. I am leaning toward a Vision myself but until my "significant other" gets a ride on one with me, I am not ready to make the commitment.

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

I owned a Yamaha Venture for from 2009-2012. Loved it or so I thought I did. Last October my wife and I went to the local Harley Dealer who had just taken on the Victory dealership and they were having a Demo ride that day. I have always liked the Vision since it first came out. Long story short, when we took our demo ride I kept hearing my wife say, "Wow, wow!" Their ad rang true for us. We rode one, we bought one. We bought it on a Saturday and the following Monday we took off to the Smoky Mountains. We rode all day long and into the night only stopping to fuel and get something to eat. When we arrived at our hotel I asked my wife if she was tired or sore. Her response was, "No. I actually didn't dread getting back on the Vision after a fuel stop or when we stopped to eat." I can't say that about the Venture. As much as I loved the power and the smoothness of the Venture I couldn't wait for a fuel stop. There were times after an overnight stay that I really didn't want to get back on it the next day. Not so with the Vision!!! We couldn't wait to get the next day started. By far the most comfortable bike I have ever owned and ridden!!!!
