Default hello from Indiana

I do not currently own a Victory, but thinking about a Vision for my next bike.

I've been riding for 18 years, and have used my bikes as commuters. I've never owned an American bike (read Harley). Many of my friends are Harley riders, and their frequent trips to the shop combined with mediocre fuel mileage really turned me away.

Recently I saw a Vision at a local gun shop and was really struck by its appearance. I spoke briefly to the rider but it was more of a toy for him and he had no other knowledge about it.

After many articles it seems like they can get 40mpg (minimum requirement for MPG for me, for a motorcycle), very reliable and capable of 150k plus miles (I average 15k miles a year).

It sounds like a good bike despite its size. So I came here to learn more.

Currently I ride an ST1100 which suits my needs very well, but I'd love to ride an American bike for a change. (And I am a quarter Japanese, so no prejudice towards Japanese bikes, just pride in my country).

Thanks for having me!

I am riding a 2012 Cross Roads.
My salesman assured me it was the fastest Color (Black).
I've added Windshield, Utopia Driver backrest and Victory Passenger Backrest, Mirror Extenders, and 3M Clear paint protection film.
There is 2 dealers in Indy, One in Terre Haute, and One in Evansville.
