    Y buddy's Roadmaster with the 111 is an amazing motorcycle. Has torque from just about off idle and the power windshield is nice also. Used ones are not priced too bad. I fit a bit better on my XCT but he has pullback bars as he is shorter. I rode on on a demodays with mini apes and it fit me well . I'm always impressed with the torque on the 111

    VISION, BABY!
    If Victory had updated the looks ( like the Goldwing redesign) I think it would have done better.
    In my book the Vision is the best bike I have ever owned over all.....except the looks....from certain angles, lol.

    The tip over protection is underrated and incredible, the cornering is second to none and the wind management is hands down the best.

    I just looked at a "brand new" 0 mile 2016!

    I could buy TWO for the price of this Chief, lol

    I feel you. The one thing that disappointed me was that they never worked with the design. 2008 to 2016 and they never worked with the design. I always felt that was short sighted given the resources they invested in bringing it to life. They could have tuned it and sculpted it over time. Personally I love the way this bike looks, but things can always be improved. I really wanted to see Vision 2.0, but we never got it. At least we still get to enjoy the ones we have.

    It looks like it was put together with parts they already had on hand. It does not look well thought out. This is in the Dana area that they don’t have. A bike between the big bikes and the introduction bike. You can see why they would do it, I just don’t like the look. Once you put a real seat on it it looks better.

    And also work at hiding or finding a way to make the tank and the rear fender look like they actually were designed to be on the bike.

    I believe it's Dirty Bird Concepts that has (or had) an updated nose for the Vision that looked a lot better.
    If I got another Vision, I'd go for it. I also liked the Cross Country bag mod. Looks great.

    That is a really cool front end. I’d like to see it on the bike.

    That's a nice video, thank you for posting is @crosscountryla. As I've posted before, I suspect these bikes will sell quite well.

    Lloyd has a 126 big bore the new 116-inch engines. Just imagine how strong a fully tuned ECM, a much bigger air filter, Lloyds 585 cams, and a performance exhaust in a 126-inch engine installed on this light Indian Chief.

    Well, the touch Screen gage is cool. I would expect a version of that to show up on jap bikes soon. Looks cool, not sure if my old eyes could focus on a 4” screen while riding though.

    If that was set up like a Kingpin tour with choice of the 116 or the 108, big info screen, all the good tech including decent stereo, tpms & gps for say $12 grand all in, it’d capture my attention a whole lot more. I’m just not in that type of market at the moment but it looks like a good base starting point. Probably double in cost to make it the way I would want it
