Default Victory newbie

Have had vision for one month and put 5600 kms on it so far. Now that I'm used to the clunking and all I love it.

Here in the Pacific Northwet, we don't clunk because we preload the shifter for smoother quieter shifts. I think there are other parts of the country where they do that too.

That's not a bad first month.

Visions are awesome!

Some say I'm biased.
