Default New from WA

New (to me) owner of 2008 Vision. Looking forward to these forums as a source of other owners' experience and advice. Been riding for 25 years, but smaller bikes. This is my first full dress tour machine. Hoping the wife enjoys the ride better than smaller (750-ish) rides. Thanks to all.

Welcome to the forum.
If you got the tour model with the trunk you will never get her off the bike so you can ride solo.

Ah, the home of Bruchi's cheese steak sandwiches. Some of the best in the west.
Four posts...now you can fill out your profile and a signature. Oh, nice choice of touring bike. What color?

Standard 2008 Cherry color...but it's faded over time and now it's more like "root beer". a bit faded and a few scratches but still turns heads.

I guess that what happens when you live where the sun shines. My Midnight Cherry is still looking virginal. I love the name of that color, it reminds me of my high school days, er nights.
