Recovering Honda Rider
So, last Saturday I told my wife I was going to go look at motorcycles at the Victory Dealer. I had ridden the Cross country on a demo ride and loved it. She told me not to buy anything... LOL.
The dealer had just traded a for a 2010 Vision and was asking $13,000 for it. I told him if it was still there on Monday to give me a call and I'd probably buy it. Well, Monday morning, he called me at 1100. I immediately told my boss I was leaving early to go buy a motorcycle. By 3pm I was riding the bike home. I only took it on a 30 minute test ride, but was immediately impressed with how forgiving an 849 lb bike could be... I was doing figure eights in parking lots, just marvelling at the maneuverability of this machine.
Now, I've been riding a Honda VTX1300S for the last 7 years and I really do love the bike. It has been nothing but fantastic for me. Never once let me down, and it sounds great (Cobra Slip-ons). I even took the VTX to the Tail of the Dragon a month ago. However, I've been chomping at the bit for a new bike and this one seemed to just fall into my lap at the perfect time. I've got nothing negative to say about the Honda, but this bike is incredible thus far.
I'll try to post the picture I have of it. I think I'll have to go through photobucket since I am a new user.
