Default Welcome back

Nice ride there fellow but looks like snow in the picture there. So are you riding in the cold ? I do cause I have heated seat and grips.

What brought you back?

You obviously liked the Triumph. You mind giving me an idea of how it treated you? Ease of maintenance?

I like several of them and now that Victory is no more I'm going to eventually need a new brand. I've always been drawn to the Rocket III, but I'm digging the new Wing too.

Love that color scheme. It really flatters the Vision lines. Oh, and welcome back to the nut house.

I was thinking the same as @VicVisionBulldog .....Inquiring minds want to know
The two bikes are polar different and its just strange to see new Vics almost as year after its death

Default different

Well guys thanks for the returning welcome..
when I decided to buy the trophy it was just because it was 4 years with the Vic and wanted something different. 30,000 great miles on the 8ball street no complaints
The Trophy was a excellent bike as well great rider protection and so much more get up and go its ridiculous Had a few gremlins with some electronics but I bought It used but nothing that really was an issue just annoyance at times.

Took new Vic for quick ride yesterday and first off is how pathetic it is in power and sound. It was hard to get used to the first time too as I come from a Triumph Sprint 1050, another great bike.
So back to making it mine and giving it character, going to mod my pipes and do the intake upgrades too. I was pondering the idea of cams too but not sure I up for the expense, but will be pulling trailer now and extra power would be welcome.
So anyway looking forward to being back here and getting to ride again soon.

What RPMs are you using for shift points?

I think for normal riding probably around 3-3500
Getting exhaust and intake opened up will help tons.
