Default Whoot whoot, moving over to this forum !

Well, looks like I'll be moving over here from the Kingpin forum :-)

Found a brand new 2013 Vision for $14,999 after the full throttle salute, so I'll be trading in my 2008 Kingpin Tour! Should be picking her up on Saturday, though I'm not looking forward to the drive over to Kalamazoo, which is 410 miles each way. Gonna be a long day!

Wish it was warm enough to ride over, but its only 40 degrees and the forcast is for low 40's on Saturday.

Congrats on the Vision.

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 and good luck with your new Vision. I had five great years on my 2008 and 34,000 Mi. of pretty much trouble free riding. Hope I do just as well with the new XCT.

Congrats on a great new bike, moving to Vision is not all that difficult. I ride my 2013 every day and it just keeps on giving. So far I only have 7600 miles since mid-May but I may see more riding as my other obligations drop off. That 400-ish ride would be a piece of cake on your new Vision. 410 on a Vision with its heated grips and seat is easy enough at the warm temperature of 40F. Just wear lined jeans and a good jacket and go for it. Even without heated grips and seat I find those adequate down to around 25F. This will be my first winter with the added comfort factors of heated grips and seat so I am looking forward to finding out what my true limits will be.

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

I would Oldman47, but I would have to ride the Kingpin over first and thats a bit to cold without the fairing and lower wind protection, not to mention no heated seats or grips :-)

Can't wait to go get her Saturday.

The Vision is made for cold weather. You have heated grips, heated seat and great wind management. All you need is a light jacket...Where is your sense of adventure?????

Very true. Just gotta take it easy for the first 500 miles. Good way to break that bad boy in!

I know, I'm just not into doing an ironbutt over and back run. The back would be great on the Vision, but going over in 30 degrees on the Kingpin is not my idea of adventure
