Default Good morning!

Hello everyone - Just sold my HD and looking to pick up a used Victory if I can find the right deal. I currently can't ride enough to justify a newer bike so trying to see what's available used/older. I've heard great things about Vics so wanted to see what I could find.
Thanks for the add!

What style of riding are you accustomed to? Hard to suggest what might suit you with no direction known.....

Default Welcome

Welcome from Wyoming. Don't get a Vision. It will ruin you. It looks "different" , handles like a sport bike in the twisites, and has more legroom (AKA "comfort") than anything else on the road. Not much good off road either.... AND it isn't an EHO (Everybody has one Harley or Harley lookalike). No, stay away from one of those ...... ;-) Again, welcome! LMYR

I still think Vision is fugly compared to a cross bike but they are all good bikes. Personal preferences vary.

OP hit up the Facebook groups you can find varying levels of deals there. Some are still proud wanting $18k for their bikes but most are realistic pricing.

I've had cruisers, adventure touring (Triumph Tiger XC), and touring bikes (Street Glide and an Ultra Classic). No sport bikes, but was looking for more of a boulevard bruiser, something loud and obnoxious would be great, I just don't want a lot of $ tied up in something I can't ride as often as I would like.

To me that would be like a Vegas or such. Simple no frills cruising around bike. They tend to sell pretty low on Facebook so easy to pick one (or two).

I've also have a Highball. Great looker and with a set of ground pounders (I have stage one X-bows on mine) it can make a butt load of noise. All the steel frames are great for noise, reliability and general (read inexpensive) fun. Whatever you do though stay away from them Visions. They're way to comfortable, handle way too good and they're ugly (not like all them pretty EHOs). LMYR
