    2016 vision
    the wife and I have been after this bike for a while now. Something always came up and it just wasn't a "good idea" at the time. Upon hearing victory is shutting the doors we thought it's now or never. Not many of these left new and kids graduated this year woohoo! Nonetheless, freedom Powersports in Huntsville al. Came thru. We love this thing! Coming up on the 500 mile service. If I had to complain, it would be the same things everyone else has mentioned. The mirrors, not much exhaust note, ordered a heel toe shifter already, and the fact that this thing is fueled by the ankle blood of the innocent. That Took some getting used to. I find that when it is just me, putting those passenger floorboards in the upright position seems to help but you really do adjust. This bike truly does ride amazing. Wife says the same thing as everyone else, back seat is awesome and will be comfortable for hours. I always liked my roadstar 1700 and it has been a great bike to us but I rode it today and simply couldn't think of anything else other than..... Why did I ride this? The vision is even more nimble than the roadstar even with the added weight. I'm certain the wife will never get back on the roadstar after being on the vision so maybe it'll make a cool single seater. Looking forward to many great miles to come and lots of great info on here. I wish we had done this years ago so if you are waiting to get one of these, do it now. Gary. 2016 vision gloss back

    better late than never gary ! I often think to myself, man, these people just don't know what there missing. I guess its a good thing these bikes are so off the wall looking because if they were'nt everyone would try one out and then they would be everywhere ! little did I know bucking the trend would put me on the most comfortable freakin bike I've ever rode in my life. its been 5 years now on a vision and I still test ride every thing under the sun but have yet to find anything even comparable. maybe the new Yamaha ??? enjoy the new toy,,, ride safe !

    11243.jpeg 11246.jpeg 11248.jpeg Haha cracking me up! Ok, i promise it happened but I agree.... Without pics....... I'll get them today! no, I'm in Tennessee close to Chattanooga. And yes I must admit, I was considering waiting for the release of that new Yamaha but probably not now.
