Default Rode a vision today

My buddy picked up his bike this week brought it over to show me. Had to take around the block to compare with my cross-country. Biggest thing I noticed is wind protection from everywhere. Very nice touring bike.

Sounds like all it needs is the storage capacity of the cross country and its be perfect. I like the idea of a fixed fairing over a non-fixed.

You guys should go for a decent ride and swap bikes on the return trip

Yup storage. Main big reason I went with the XCT vs Vision. I really liked the handling on the Vision.

Now isn't that funny - when I was first learning about Victory I rode the two models side-by-side on the same day to compare them and the Vision was blowing me all over the place while the CCT was much calmer.

OH yea. VIsion looks like the bags are big, but they dont go all the way back like it looks. Web bike world says 40 gallons storage on XCT, 29 gallon on Vision.

Oh. I know the Indians have less and thought the vision had more than XCT.
I'm sure they are good bikes though.

Yeah but all you wear are thongs. Can pack a year's worth of those in half a saddlebag.
