Hi Yall , I am currently a metric rider and own a 09' M109R Suzuki Boulevard. I have owned her since Oct. 2010. I have made her mine with the mod's that I have done and very proud of the finished work. I had recently taken a 3400 mile trip to S.D. and back from Texas and had a great time and ride. I want to make the Vision my next bike since its more of a touring bike and the 109 a muscle cruiser. She ran great and was trouble free but I need some more creature comforts for the long haul and I dig the Vision's dare to be different style, Which is my style too and that's why I ride the 9 and not something else. It has taken awhile but the Vision has grown on me and would love to own one now. I hate to part with the 9 but now I need to get my other half on the back of the Vision and ride. Any tips and do's and dont's as far as options and mods would be most appreciated. I live in central Texas and own a small farm and raise cattle and also work full time as a Deputy Sheriff. Thanks Craig....

Welcome to the forums and glad to see another rider appreciate the VV! Lol. Got over 10k on my 11 since last October and lovin every mile. There is quite a few Vvriders here to answer questions but. Give a direction your curious about and I'm sure we can get you more than enough info. Here's a couple pointers. If you buy used with the Vic cb installed that's about 1k and the Icom/cb software is great. Wind management with lowers and flip shield has great advantages as well as opinions. A flip for 2up is a benefit. White is the faster color! Lol

Get on cycle trader and see what's out there.

Default New bike in the stable

Well Im a proud owner of a 2011 pearl white Vision. Purchased her yesterday in Weatherford Texas at Freedom Motorsorts. She has 14K on the odometer and is in fantastic condition. I am having a performance exhaust and fuel management and air intake system installed before she comes home. She has alot of the factory options and I dont anticipate I will be doing much to her. I will be getting the Corbin seat and smuggler set up for when I am going on trips 1 up. Let the adventure begin, I am pretty jazed about getting her and cant wait to take some rides....

Hmmmm,something looks familiar..... Lol. Congrats on the new ride! You do know white is the fastest color of the Visions. Hehehehee. What pipes did you go with? I'm thinking about asking Santa for Ness Honkers beings I'm pressing the budget window for this year. Lol

I just pulled the trigger on an 08 Vision two weeks ago. Was leaning pretty heavy towards a Wing because of it's reputation as a comfortable 2-Up touring bike. The issue I had was the location of foot controls and seat height. I'm a bit vertically challenged and was on my toes balancing a 900lb bike without gear and second rider. I sat on a couple of Wings that previous owners added floorboards and that was a huge safety issue for me. You have to flip the boards up to put your feet down unless you're very long legged.
The Vision seat height and cruiser style forward foot controls sold it for me. Now I just have to figure out some of the wind buffeting my wife feels and we're good to go.

Good luck with your decision!

Yes I was looking at the used Wings market and also did not like the peg set up or position. I have been reading about the buffeting issue and I think its a windshield height matter. I am looking at different shields but have not decided which is best out there and have the look. I do like the 7JuRock and dont know if what size would be the best. I am 6' and dig the electric adjustment. Take care Craig..

I just ordered a 17" 7Jurock with Flip this past weekend. I should have it sometime next week. I'll let you know how it goes.
