    vision
    So I walk into a local Indian dealer to look at a Polaris General. My eye caught a brand new red and black 116 roadmaster and couldn't controll my feet and left the General to look at this. By the end of the day I traded my vision. Hope I don't regret this someday as I really liked my vision. Don't ask for pictures cause I suck at this computer ****. I will try to figure out this picture thing cause I'm going to sell a vision factory backrest with closeout panel. Excellent shape. Also have a closeout panel I'm going to sell.

    A guy I work with just traded his 1 year old Challenger the newest Road Master. His is the blue one that looks black at most angles. It has a heated and a cooled seat too. He absolutely loves the RM. it’s the right bike for him.

    Congratulations @wiggles, there’s little not to love about the new RM.

    Congrats on the new Bike. After you have been on that bike for a few months give us a review/comparison of the two.

    Enjoy that new bike.

    Hope you love the new ride and don't regret the change! Gotta be hard to beat a Vision.

    Definitely interested in the factory backrest, if you choose to sell it!

    That 111 engine is a torque monster. I can only imagine the 116.

    vision
    To answer some replies. I use to buy a different bike every two years. I had a couple voyagers a Vulcan 2000 and then victory. Cross country tour then the vision. Well I had my vision for four years. I just didn't get the itch anymore, just a great bike. I did notice right away when I test drove the roadmaster how I could not stretch out like on the vision and does not have that awesome wind protection, real close but not as good. But I have not been able to put any miles on the roadmaster yet because it has snowed for the last couple of days here in ND. Yes I do have some vision stuff I'm going to sell. I will try to get it listed on market place this weekend

    I will do that delta flash. One other this I did notice on the roadmaster compared to the vision is the heat. Hot bike. But I had all the Lloyds goodies on the vision tuned by the Vic shop. Ran awesome. Did I notice a big difference in get up and go between the two,no not really. But just a short ride so far.

    I use to swap bikes every two/three years. Fell in love with a new one as I got bored with the old one. Solved that in 2013 when I went to buy a CCT and went home with a Vision. Have ridden every Indian they have come up with, and still haven't come up with one more comfortable. Did slip and add a Gunner to the garage, but that was just to get a little solo steel frame when they closed. Vision will be my forever bike, and then when I can't hold it up I will park it to look at while I finish my two wheel life on the Gunner. Enjoy your Indian, and let us know where your old one is, always a looking for a spare.

    @mfg02 somewhere in or near North Dakota, Hopefully @wiggles will return with dealerships name & location as it’s already been given Llyods goodies & had Rylans talented hands upon it. Hope your road trip bags already packed for an awesome ride home
