    That Vision has a lot going on and someone has really made it theirs.

    Lights added from and rear.

    Custom graphics.

    Reverse.

    Landing gear, but appears it would scrap fairly easy.

    Mirrors on the bars.

    Rear view camera.

    Brown leather grip wraps, clashing with the black saddle though.

    But no lowers!

    Doesn't float mine but it doesn't need to. I'm sure the owner is very happy with it as I am with my two.

    We had a guy in our club years ago that had something similar on his Nomad. The wheels would automatically retract or extend at like three miles per hour. Enabled him to confidently ride it a few more years.

    I know someone with same kind of kit. He was in bad accident years ago really messed up one leg. Added the kit but he doesn't really use it now since his leg got stronger. It was a crutch when needed.

    Does anyone have a brand name for this landing gear. I would like to give it a try on Vision.

    I've seen those demonstrated on a Gold Wing. They help assist in turns. Thought it was a good shot at helping matters, but ultimately a bit funny. :hurt1:

    I am not sure if this is the same company but maybe they could give you some better info being in the biz.

    That pic really looks like those were actually for another bike but the owner had them retrofitted to their Vision.

    That is an interesting video. The system I saw, about 6 yrs ago, was same but it was boasting the ability to help turn, like training wheels. This is a better set up for sure.

    The system you have pictured is made by GLK Landing Gear in South Korea. It is activated by pressing a button to lower or raise the Landing Gear.
    GLK make them to be able to mount them on various bikes such as: Goldwing, Harleys (some models), BMW etc. They do not make a system for Victory.
    HOWEVER....
    I have just imported a system into Australia to fit onto my XC. Right now I am in the process of manufacturing the Mounting Base (the bit that goes onto the bike frame) to fit my bike and when finished, I will mate it to the Goldwing system. I should be finished in about two weeks.

    The photo you show is of the old system. The new system, called a GLK F209, is the one I am using. It folds out and then tucks away when "up".
    The photo you show is the ONLY attempt they made to fit the system to a Victory. Because of the rarity of Victory models they do not want to go to the trouble of designing and manufacturing the base mounting bracket....so I've decided to do it myself.

    The Managing Director name is: Yunmok. If you write to him, he will reply in English (if you don't speak Korean).

    Here is a video of the GLK Landing Gear being fitted to a Gold Wing 2019 model:


    Here is their website. You may have to convert to English (or American):
    https://glkmotor.com

    GLK Global have numerous videos on Youtube. Even videos of their manufacturing process. Well worth watching.

    I have no business interests with GLK Landing Gear but have conducted extensive research and, in my mind, there is no better Landing Gear manufactured.
    As an aside. There is a Landing Gear manufactured in the USA. It is operated with airbags. The reviews are not exemplary. On the other hand. GLK Landing Gear is all electronic. It is quick and has undergone long and extensive testing. I believe it will soon be used on Japanese Police bikes.

    I am getting into my 70's and the GLK Landing Gear will enable me to continue riding for a bit longer.

    I hope this helps you. Feel free to write to me if I can help you more.

    I’m riding in Maine this week with my Americade friends and one of them with a Goldwing 1800 has the Landing gear. Everything was fine until his wife tried to climb aboard and it buckled and they went over. Not sure if it’s supposed to lock in lace or it’s just air pressure (he said it’s just air pressure) but he gave up on it and is now looking to get his wing triked.

    Thanks, I looked at Legup, but don’t really like the looks. Both are $4000! Sure would like to find a used GLK to modify for my Victory. Bike is only worth 6K. Hard to put 4K in it. Already have a Trike and wanted to 2 wheel some but not to good on the slow stuff. I found an old post selling a used set but when he got back with, turns out that he took them to the dump a week ago. Really want a GLK though. Thanks again.
