Default 22 year old on a vision?

Hey guys I just want to get peoples input on this. I am 22 years old and used to have a Harley Road King Classic. I totaled that bike a little more then a year ago and a few weeks ago bought a crotch rocket. I hate the thing. I have been looking into the Victory Vision and found a nice left over with heated handgrips and auto windshield for a good price. I just want to see what people think about a 22 year old riding "an old man" bike, as some people say.

Thanks for your input in advance, I wont take offense to honesty. I if the financials work out I think i'm getting it regardless, but just curious of peoples thoughts.

Ride what you want don't worry about what other think because in the end you need to feel good about your purchase.

Since you'll be paying for it,I guess the question should be,how do you like it?How will you feel riding a comfortable,powerfull,well built American bike? I say screw what other people think!

I'm 38 years old and I think I'm about 40 years to young for it. But then again that's just me.

Go for it you'll just be head of the game and think of the places you can go and see.
Put a hotty on the back and ride off into the sun set.
Her ass wouldn't hurt and will want another ride.

Damn! I love custom paint jobs!!
This is going to cost me a fortune!
But the way I see it, I have no kids, so there's no reason to leave my money laying aorund whne I'm dead. I want the last check I ever write to bounce!

I guess I just don't understand the question. Why would you ask someone else what they think about the bike you want to ride? May be you are to young to ride any bike

Never to young to ride a vision! I have a jackpot at 22 years old I love the thing, but i never pass up the chance to ride my fathers vision its a great bike and I enjoy the thing to death. If he had that before i bought the JP i would be riding a vision for sure. You ride what you like who cares what others think. You build your bike to YOUR taste not others, should be the same with what you ride! and i am the same way you are, was riding a R6 terrible ride but it was a bike, now that i bought a victory i have a great balance between power and comfort. buy what you will enjoy riding.
