Default Tomorrow is decision day

I have decided tomorrow at Victory of Mesa demo days I will either trade in my 13 Vision or keep it for the long haul. I was 50/50 when I bought it if I should go with the XC or the Vision. Love the Vision but it definitely is a bike for the longer rides. I really like the XC and the look of it and with a few mods it has that custom bagger look. Sometimes we look back and go should have so tomorrow deciding if I should have done the XC back in March. Crazy I know.

Blame it on me

Thank you for supporting the economy. Whatever you decide, you still end up with a great bike.

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!

So true! A nice combo would be either the Vision or XC and one of the good steel frame bikes. No need to ask me how I know.

Nice thing about Victory and its long-term reliability is anyone can buy a used one (or two) and feel good and confident on them.

Personally, I'm partial to the x bikes for their purpose, but the vision is one hell of a machine. Tough decision ahead of you.

Yes keep your old bike(2013?) and buy that new XC or why not a XRs also. Good luck on that. Still enjoy my Cross Roads, though I wish I would not have gotten black.

I say snap out of it. Don't mean to sound crued but you are going to take a hit on the loss. Why not enjoy the Vision another year or two. Rumor has it that Victory has some changes coming in the future and then you will be faced with the same dilemma again. The Vision is an awesome machine. Always loved it.

By the way if you remove the trunk you will have that bagger look and personally I like it with out the trunk. Look at some Arlen Ness Visions from the past and you will see what I am talking about.

The first time I rode an XC I thought the same thing. Felt like sitting in a car after tooling around on a couple naked cruisers. Thought it'd be nice to ride up the highway to Michigan on. Smooth and quiet, but not too exciting.

And you will have a custom bagger that looks just like everyone elses.

Well, if you need an excuse to rejoin the herd, then just tell yourself that your Vision's fender will fall off soon and cause you to crash.
