So Sad...

update #1 - dealership called today to let me know that their Victory rep agreed to replace my Vision.  Now they need to get some sort of factory approval for the replacement.  Hope to get a call tomorrow on the status of the replacement and a timeframe.



If the time estimate is like the one I got for a new bike to be delivered, it will be weeks. For me a pre-purchased Vision is estimated at 2 to 3 weeks and no factory approval was needed, it just takes that long to get one. So far it has been 2 weeks since I ordered it and still no bike in sight. Last weekend I rode my trade-in 700 miles for a special event, it had better not affect my deal with the local stealer.


wcato3, I like take 2. It reflects real world experiences.

Update #2 - The dealership called today to let me know that MaVic has approved the replacement of my Vision.  They are looking at either shipping one up from the LA area or getting one from the Arlen Ness dealership in the Bay Area.  Time frame has not been nailed down, but the dealership is guessing that my bike will be here early to middle of next week. 


I do agree with wcato3 that "Take 2" may be a good name for the new bike.

That is really good news for you. It's also reassuring to other Vic owners that Polaris steps up to the plate when something has a problem right out of the box. Hope it works out soon!

I've taken the road less traveled, now where the hell am I.
I don't buy a bike to impress other people, just ME!
I will always ride a bike, I just can't tell you what brand it will be.

Wow, that's a real bummer. I got a good name to throw out there for your next bike. How about "Double Vision."

Update #3 - Received a call the from the dealership today and was told that my replacement Vision is on it's way from So. Cal.  They expect it to arrive sometime tomorrow afternoon.  Once it arrives, the dealership will install the Stage 1 air cleaner, flash the computer, and install the S1L2 pipes. If all goes as expected, I'll be riding Vision #2 after work on Wednesday.  I've also been told that my Street Panel is in and the Lower Deflectors should be at the shop tomorrow too.  


I can't wait for #2 to be in my hands!!!
