Is this your first bike? Pretty good way to start riding going straight to the top. The Vision is a great bike!

Nope! I had a vstar 650 prior to this for about a year and a half. Wanted to do more highway driving to see my friends in Miami, orlando and Sarasota so I got something bigger! 1732 cc's just feels right!

Well the Vision is perfect for that. It's an incredible bike. You made a wise choice. I hope you enjoy it as much as I enjoy my two.

We are here to help you with your bike and out of your money. Did your Vision come with an owners manual? If so, READ IT! That will answer a lot of questions right there. A tip for better handling; air up the tires 38-40 front, 40-42 rear. At least 15 psi in the rear shock and only use a hand pump like this to do it - no compressor air....

There are others,go to Amazon, eBay, etc.
