    I posted this in the Vision forum too, but decided to put it in the XC area just in case I get "the other side's" opinions. (Although, you all do read EVERY post on thevog.net- right?)

    Anyway-

    After doing the demo rides last weekend at Mom's South in Massachusetts, i've been giving serious thought to selling my 2010 XC and picking up a 2010 Vision...

    Anyone have any thoughts- good or bad?

    I love my XC but think I might like the extra comfort of the Vision more- but i'm also afraid of missing "Jenny" once she's gone- grass is always greener on the other side, etc. etc....

    (If anyone is in the NH area and looking for a slightly used XC 6k miles, extended factory warranty, stage 1, factory tall and short windshields- feel free to contact me!)

    Funny... I had the same feeling after visiting M.O.M.'s today to return parts I bought during the open house. Especially after hearing of the "up to 5,000.00 off" Victory is offering now... But.........now that the excitment has diminished I think I'll keep the X-Country...

    as I said earlier you can't do wrong with either bike. Both bikes have their strengths and weakness'. I think you'd take such a beating on re-sale though so maybe wait a season or two.

    I had the same feeling Friday. The Victory truck was here Friday and Saturday and I rode most of the bikes there, but I rode the Vision Premium Tour and the Vision 8 Ball twice each. I think the 8 Ball was too easy to grind the lower parts off in the corners, but I really liked the Premium Tour. I will have to think long and hard about it, though. I really think the hit would be substantial and I do like my XC. You definitely need the lowers with the Vision. The Premium Tour had them and the 8 Ball didn't. There was quite a difference between the two when it came it issues of heat.

    Aint it just a "*****!" Those semi Victory test rides sure get their hooks into you. They did the same to me when I was @ the Laughlin River Run. I was scheming & plotting how I could get a new bike. Luckily - I kicked it around a few days & cooled off a bit. The funny part is - 3 months later & I still want that new bike!!! LOL!!!

    I think Victory bags for a Jackpot are bigger than the Vision. It's a sin.

    The Vision is not about the bags, its about the bike. Let me know what ya can't carry on a Vision for 7 days?....and I'll explain how to pack it or why you don't need it.

    Never an issue with me. I think the bags hold more than you think. The right bag will hold 1 case (24 cans) of beer.

    Manufactures should list capacity in a unit of measure that makes sense: Beers

    Those bags a HUGE!!! Much bigger than the VV. My point is that the Vision is not as small as on my think!

    I have heard this conversation more than once about comfort on the CC vs. the Vision.

    I ride my KP all day several hundred miles without issues. I am assuming there is something very wrong with the CC ride or the seat or something. ???

    I don't think there is anything wrong with the XC, but I like new bikes. I have stated before, I have never had a bike I wouldn't trade in for another that caught my eye. I looked at a Road Glide CVO today. I really liked it. I never thought I would consider a Harley, but I am considering it.

    The vision can hold beer... But the XC can hold beer AND ice, so it's cold when you get there! Priorities, people!
