Default New to victory

I just today bought a 2012 victory vision!!! I've been a harley guy. I just got tired of things I thought that should not require maintenence cost. I sold my 2009 Roadglide last July and I've been searching every since. I love that victory is American built (as much as harley is). I I got sold on the utubes that are on the net. I hope I made the right decision. I bought a 2012 victory vision ( I like fixed fairings) . I bought it from a member here with an Extended warranty. I went over and sat on them last weekend, I never took one for a ride. I knew I would like it, and be tempted to buy new.

I'm excited about this bike. I'm hoping my wife will like this better than my Roadglide

I can't say, but I can say my wife enjoys riding on my Vision much more than she did my Kingpin.

Thumbs up Welcome Victory One

I have had my 2012 Vision for three weeks now, 1,000 miles. I believe you made a great choice. I've never owned a Harley so no reason to bash them, but many demo rides sold me on Vision. Some folks are critical of the Vision because it does'nt look like the Ultra Classic style of touring bike. O.K. by me. It also rides like no other bike, especially two up. The engineering that went in to this machine can only be appreciated looking over the windshield at speed. Some folks buy a motorcycle for it's looks and then just deal with the ride, good or bad. Buy the Vision for it's ride! Great looks are just a plus. Also my wife loves her half of the bike. Enjoy my friend.
