Well I got my new Vision today. The dealewr was not very friendly though.

We were out on a test ride and i tlod the guy I was gonna see if would roast the tires. He said oh it will but that didnt mean i wasnt gonna check for myself. So when we got out to the light I checked the front brake and hit it! It do ok and filled the intersection with smoke but my escort got all uptight about it. Whatever.

Than when we got back to the shop there was some guy oustside ranting and raving before i could even shut the bike off. Called me an idiot and bunch of other stuff. Said I bought the bike I just didnt know it yet. I told him fine I want the bike. Very uptight guy.

So when i left just to make them mad i brake checked right on theyre patio slab where they had my bike waiting. Than i tried to pop a wheelie but it wouldnt do it.Whatever thats what they get.

Than to top it off when i get home theres a message on my machine to call them. So i did it was that same guy saying dont bother to bring it in for anything that my warranty was void. He said thats no way to break a bike in. I told him well if it cant do that than i dont want it. So fine I'll find another dealer it dont matter they were not nice anyhow.

The reason that he called you an idoit is because you obviously are. You don't do that crap to someone else's bike. Even if you intended to buy it. I would have not sold the bike to you and had you arrested for vandelism. If he has voided your warrenty because of reckless care it won't matter what dealer you take it to. Victory will decline your future claims world wide.

The more I think about it...The more I am sure that your story is completely made up. I call Bull Sh*t!

Hey whats your problem? Doing burnouts wont hurt a Victory they are well built and very strong.

They cant just void my warranty at other stores theres no way. Plus the only reason i am doing burnouts is because i dont need this tire I want a bigger back tire.They said they were gonna order me one but that guy was being rude and kept coming in the office so everybody foregot to order it.

I probably wont do as many burnouts on my new tire.

I have never heard of anyone putting a bigger tire on a Vision...hmmm interesting. And yeah a Dealer can alert Corperate as to abuse done to a bike...happens all the time. And abuse is the #1 cause of warranty declines next to experation. Victory is a realitively small company and the riders get a real good chance to meet many dealers and actually corperate Vic people. We are pretty hooked up as far as that goes.

They said arlen ness makes a big tire kit and they would put it on for me.

Doing burnouts is not abuse.Its not like i was gonna blow up the engine i shift gears when i do burnouts its no big deal.

I like the Vision very much. It is the most incredible motorcycle that I have ever ridden. I have come close to buying one on several occasions.

Southern California. There are a couple of good dealers down there and you can take a road trip up here to Northern Cali and go to Ness'.

I was going to call you an idiot too. I thought you were test riding a bike you had not bought.

The drive train being able to handle the burnout is not the issue. The issue is the burnout puts unneccesary wear on a tire that another person is going to buy.

Since its your bike....drive the way you want it.

There was a story on another site talking about a guy that is friends with a dealer. He takes out one of their Jackpots with a passenger and does wheelies!!! Now THAT is a frickin idiot. Not just the customer but the dealer for allowing it. They said he regularly does that!!!!

...Burnouts do cause problems mate engines workin hard heaps of heat and NO air flow as you aren't moving so over heats motor, trans , drive train etc.
Saying that its your bike and you paid them so good on ya ...I like to watch others do it so i don have to wreck mine!!
to me there is sence in what they said BUT they could have said it quietly , carmly , with reasoning and a little humour and you proably would have waited till you were out of site so as to not piss them off and lose the warrenty.
I hear ya River rat but we are all different....would be god dam boring if we ALL rode the same color Road king wore the same color jackets and drove white four doors !!! Some guys just love that **** ...and should be allowed to as long as they can do the time for the crime eg No warrenty , broken bikes , **** cornering and big tyre bills ...not to mention a good size fine if bustard by the OFFICER OF THE LAW type person!....and even if he is tellin a porky...so what gives us something to knock the top off a cold one , read and rant about !!!:p
