Default Colorado Rider

Hello. I live in Black Forest, CO and ride a 2012 Victory Vision (black). I purchased my bike new in 2013 and have a lot of fun riding it through the Rocky Mountains. It's amazing how many people still gawk at the bike and it's always a conversation starter everywhere I stop.

Happy riding!

Thanks Bulldog! Like you said, better late than never!

Love my Vision. I recently purchased a 2010 Honda ST1300 for the shorter rides. I enjoy the Honda but it reminds me just how comfortable the Vision is compared to other bikes.

I went looking for a second bike. I couldn't find one that was as comfortable as my 13 Vision so I ended bringing home a second. If you knew me you would know that makes perfect sense. I'm a man that finds what I like and stick with it. That's good news for the wife, lol!

I picked up an 08 Tour Premium just after the death of Victory and turned it into a Street for a short solo cruiser.

Welcome aboard from a fellow Vision rider. Was down in your area two years ago and you have some of the best riding I've been on. Sadly I did not have my Vision at the time but still loved the mountain roads.

Fun! Another dream of mine, to ride in the mountains. Getting to the top of Pikes Peak was terrifying in my Jetta TDI - I can't imagine it on a motorcycle!! But I want to!

I lost my Colorado hat I bought at the top, and I want another one.

Welcome (finally). IMHO there ain't a better touring bike than a Vision. Mine's a '13 (bought new in 13) and I've ridden there in the mountains outta Pueblo to Santa Fe. Bike rides (and you should know) like a sport bike through the twisties. Hell, more fun than the wife's Jetta any day ;-) Don't worry it man. Just ride and ride careful. I also got a second bike in 17 - a 17 Highball for the short rides. Little sucker is so frickin' fast it's crazy. Love it. Ride 'em like you stole 'em and LONG MAY YOU RIDE (LMYR)!

Long may you ride!
