"That's the ugliest fucking motorcycle I've ever seen in my life."
I have heard that before with my Vision my reply is always I guess it's a good thing you don't own it!! I have had several different motorcycles the Vision is the first motorcycle that anyone has ever said anything close to that and several other negitive comments but some very postive ones as well. I draws a crowd just about any place I ride it, others asking what is that or what brand is that a lot people have never heard of Victory I educate the people who want to learn others don't, I personally don't care it's what I ride. Most of the real bikers have died off I give them a lot of respect but the posers of today that are on HD they can suck it!! I ride with pride knowing that I ride the best in my opinion and of course we all know everyone has one of them
Riders reflect the same range we find in everyday society. some good , some bad, some indifferent. I love all bikes really, they all have something that floats somebodies boat. Bikes and bikers should not have been relegated to a religious belief system but we do have that especially one american brand. I just keep saying to myself- I am not dissing your God- you can worship him if you want to, dont have a problem with that, its just that there might be other gods that people believe in, as long as both lead you in the right direction (enjoying riding on two wheels) what's the harm in that? But to some zelots it is like if you are not riding my brand- the only brand- then you are unamerican and the county is about to go to hell and I am not gonna let you diss America! thats what makes all this so funny at times. you can ride what you want, i can ride what I want and I am gonna enjoy the experience the way I choose to and nothing you can do about it. Dont worry if I ride a Victory- the USA is not gonna go to hell because of it. So chill out. Oh BTW, your bike is leaking again, I would get that checked out.
Good post. That goes with the man code, "Do not use the urinal next to another guy unless there is no other choice."
I think that the ex Harley riders who now have Vic's are like guys who have quit smoking. They'e the worse. There's a mentallity out there that people think anything other than a Harley is just not a real motorcycle. Than when we buy something else we want it to look like a Harley and sound like one.
Somebody, stop the madness!
Not quite sure how to take that Bob. I currently own a farkled out HG StreetGlide but have been following Victory for quite sometime and am currently trading out to CCT. I like my HG. It's a beautiful bike and have had very little trouble with it. Fact is, a stock HD comes with considerably more attention to detail as compared to other brands. Yes, I know that technically speaking, the VIC is superior. I am trading because "A", my current ride is 6 years old and "B", I like being different. I don't drink anyones Kool-Aid. I don't have a closet full of HD clothing either. I really can't stand the "attitude" that riders have towards someone elses ride because it doesn't have the same name on the tank. My dad rode an Indian and my ultimate goal is, to be riding one as well. He turns 90 in October and I pray he lives long enough to see me on one. It's all good.

i had to search what a Suzuki Burgman was and looked like and I would have to say that is the pot calling the kettle black. I would also have to say if you don't like a Vision don't ride one it might just change the way you think. I did a test ride on one and found it to be a great MC.
The Kingpin receives a lot of criticizm about the styling. I usually say something like "How does the tail light look? That's about all you'll see of it".
