    Well, I did something on Monday I thought I would never do,, I traded the Vision in for an Indian Roadmaster.
    I went to an Indian Demo event couple weeks ago and rode about every model Indian makes and fell in love with the Roadmaster. At first I didn't think about trading the Vision but thought about it,, I ride that bike a lot of miles from home , it's almost 14 years old and has 48000 miles on it , if it ever breaks several hundred miles from home I'm probably stuck wherever for several days waiting for parts to get it fixed. I still have the Magnum but it's a lot newer and only has 6000 miles on it , I never take it over 3-4 hours from home so I'm not too worried about it breaking. Besides I really love my Magnum. The Vision is a top notch comfortable touring bike but I was never in love with the looks.

    Congratulations @zebber on keeping your Magnum and getting yourself a beautiful Road Master. I friend of mine recently bought a 2021 Road Master and simply loves it. He traded in his Challenger for the Road Master and has never looked back.

    Curious why your friend traded the Challenger for the RM ? Personally I would pick a 116 Chieftain my self over the Challenger. Not a fan of the Challenger style.

    I certainly understand that concern.

    I am interested to see how you compare the two.

    Victory’s don’t break down, they just have rare moments when they need a moments rest

    Spector or SPECTRE (an acronym for Special Executive for Counter-intelligence, Terrorism, Revenge and Extortion)? Oil typos are the worst, Vic!

    I took it on a nice 100 mile ride today , I really like it but I don't think its as comfortable as the Vision. I feel like I'm sitting a lot higher on the Indian. Runs about the same power wise , maybe a little more torque. Rides really smooth and has all the goodies for sure. Lots of chrome to keep clean.

    I like it. Like that you chose the one that looks like an Indian. Good luck with it.

    Sharp ! I love mine no regrets here. That seat makes a huge difference how you sit in that bike. Myself to hard to wide pulls extremely away from my inseam reach. But that’s me. One of the reasons I went with the limited. Basically same bike

    Looks great! Now inquiring minds want to know what’s under the two car covers. You teased us! Lol!

    maybe we need a “my other ride is a…” thread.

    @md2420 Lol, I was just zooming in on those body lines myself, did @zebber match the new bike to the car cover or what? Is it a falcon, a deuce 2, looks early 60’s & I see it has a hood scoop & another hiding on the other side, quite being a lil car tease & don’t say it’s a corvaire

    Very very nice, I to love the Roadmaster. If and I do say if I ever get rid of my 2013 XCT I to would get a Roadmaster. Please let us know all your thoughts on it and send more pics. Hope you got a good deal on it. The one that I priced out was over 30 large before taxes. Ouch! That's why I say if! LOL.
