    Looks great in the lineup.

    I had that same huge seat --- made my wife happy....I preferred a solo seat because I'm vain, lol.

    I stuck here with only one bike....

    Anyone want to start a go-fund-me and help a brother out?!?

    Me too. I need more bikes. I’m getting crazy in my old age and have justified my need for garage candy. Oh I will ride them. All of them. I take turns now on the 2 Vic’s. If I had a nice new Indian or Harley to help break up the choices then I could keep the miles down and keep the value up. Yeah Honey gave me the same look.

    LOL cool comes with a price and it always has. I actually switch that seat between the Harleys pending on which one I’m riding. I got past the cool thing and more into the comfort as I aged. I love that seat I don’t need a back support and can roll tank to tank on it. And yes ! The wife loves it too

    You haven't succumbed to Velcro sneakers, have you?!?

    Lol.
    Yeah....the seat is comfortable. I had one and it didn't bother me as long as we were ON it. Walking away and looking back.....ugh!

    Hopefully as I mature (lol) I will become less vain and more wise.
    My grandkids have little hope for that.

    Don't forget the go-fund-me page! Click the "like" and "subscribe" and ring the bell and visit my Patreon page and give a complete stranger some of your hard earned money so I don't have to earn it.

    I'll be waiting.

    Love my Vision, Ive had three HD's. I have no issues with HD.
    Probably be a HD in my garage when I retire the Vision. Parts and accessory availability everywhere. I have 5 good independent shops that work on Harleys within 20 min from my house and I'm sure there's a few more I don't know about. Only one of those shops has any experience on Vics. He loves the Vic but said "while most critical parts are still available through limited sources, in another year that wont be the case" He recently had a XC in for service and said he spent way too much time searching parts. And yes he knows about Polaris, Witchdoctors, Vicbaggers, Victory only etc but have to go to three different sources for maintenance items takes time for a shop.

    Swapped bikes the other day with Rick who rides a sweet looking 114 HD, black , lotsa chrome , drag pipes.
    It felt nice to ride,
    Only a Harley feels like a Harley,
    Rode each other's bikes for about 20 mins, nothing heroic.
    Later at Advancetown Pub he says to me.
    "Hey your bikes a beast! When I got back on my Harley it felt like I was riding a Postie bike!"
    Postie bikes DownUnder are Honda C110's:beatdeadhorse:

    Then again I've been blown away at the track by Harley's that run 10.6 over the 1/4 mile.
    Not much original parts on em but,
    And they commute there on a trailer.
