I think the storage issue on the Vision is way over rated. I USED to think 2 of the same things which was too modern and not enough storage. Side by side with my Goldwing buddies, basically same effect just a little differn style on loading saddle bags. They are not your HD or Vic TC drop in the top bags, thats for sure but storage wise I have adapted no issue with room to spare. Trunk is spacious.
What seems to keep getting looked over in most of these Vision or XCT posts is the fixed fairing handling and seating POSTION. Whats your height? Most folks that rode a Vision, rode mine or sat on mine around the 6' have something to say. I know when I ride my TC after riding the Vision it is a very different ride. Like someone told me and I understand, you get in a Vision, you set ON everything else. That sums up the feeling to me. Next is - will you be riding 2up or solo primarily? Alot of input here for the 2up riders vs the solo's. I would say this. Get the airshock set for your body weight, 1/2 to full tank of gas (if affects the balance in the positive) and get out and ride that vision for a few hours. My first 100 miles, I thought I made a mistake. That was the last time I looked back. Absolutely the bike for me. Im going to demo day's at local dealer tomorrow and I love riding the XCT but the low profile handling of the VV is it in my book. If storage is a key asset with 2up being a general riding posture, I would really lean towards an XCT but my Mrs cant do more than short hopes due an injury so its of no concern to me.
Good luck shoppin, got questions, ask them!
