Default Vic wins out on suspension/performance with family

My sister and 2 adult children are up from PRico for vacation and have never ridden. I have some good buddies in our local GWRRA chapter who helped me with a couple rides so all3 could ride together as a family. A WING, GW TRIKE And a SPYDER over the two different routes mapped out. We swapped passengers over the rides about 300plus miles during the two days. The ride, sound, power and looks of the vision won out with 2 out of 3 of them. They loved the Icom package and the cb's between the bikes blew them away. I was very impressed with icomms VOX and our CB package although I'm still pissedabout that flimsy piece of plastic that holds the connects in place. Yup. One broke.

The family can't stop talking about the two rides, the freedom they experienced and relaxation of riding the back roads of VA. I'm grateful to my buds that rode with me enabling their family to be out together experiencing what we do every day. Picture time with them and their steeds was as much fun as riding them and they can't wait for their next road trip. I contonue to be impressed with my Vic and both my TC and Vision continue to draw the attention and initiate conversations about the brand and style. Never ver the Spyder. LoL the GWs we cool but the Vic's kept the conversations going.

Strongly encourage trying to coordinate a group ride over the summer if you got family coming in, they had a blast and uncle Tim is still the hero in their now adult eyes. Heheheh

Safe ridin all!

What great memories those. Hope there were tons of photos taken and shared.
One of my fondest memories is taking an aunt for a 150 mile ride on the back of my '92 Yamaha Venture. She was in her very high 80s (88 I think) and loved it. That memory will stay with me to the grave.

2010 Midnight Cherry XR. 7Jurock, Lloydz AF, ATS, AFR tuned VFCIII, IAV, and T-6 and locally repacked pipes = big smiles. SOLD to a dear friend, so it's still in the family."
2017 Spyder F3 Limited - keeps this old guy in the wind and riding with friends.

Yup took some pics, made some special pit stops on the two routes and swapped their rides a bit. The GW pax seat was a hit over the VV but I knew that would prob happen however during the acceleration demonstration the Vic won by a long shot. Their heading home sat and still talking abut their rides. Two wheels sets the body free! Cool story bout your aunt. Good deal!
