Welcome to the forum and thank you for your service.
I came to Victory as a HD convert myself. I traded my 2011 FLTRU, Road Glide Ultra, for my 2013 Vision. I can tell you that after a year I am definitely sold on my Vic. I had that RGU in the shop about once a month for warranty claims over the 18 months that I owned it which is a part of what drove me to look for an alternative. The last straw was when my dealer told me that a turn signal system failure was my own fault for allowing the bike to get wet. When I checked his story with another nearby dealer they agreed. Come on, its a motorcycle and it is going to get wet, I ride it and don't just park it in front of some hangout. So far I have had a single claim on my Vic warranty in a year when I ruined the starter clutch by driving at 15F. It seems there is a weakness in the Vic starter clutches at low temperatures. If you search for starter clutch failures on Victories, all that Google comes up with are cold weather failures.
