Me too. Victory Vision test ride today.

And yesterday.

Our test ride was at 5:15 PM. They told us that there was a earlier slot if we wanted it. We took it.

Then this morning I figured that if they had slots not filled yesterday I may get lucky. Yup. I got to ride again this morning. We stayed at the Winery where the test ride was being held. Wined and dined the wife after the ride. Test ride report to follow.

What I liked about the new Vision. I liked the seating position, feet forward and large floorboards and all the do dats that come with it, intercom, xm radio, cb and hooks ups for ipod, mp3 players. On two different bikes the radio stopped working, one the windshield did not work. I was told that Victory knows about the problem and is working on fixing it. Which I liked that answer. Felt heat coming from the motor which is normally from having a engine between the legs. Brakes felt good, really could not test them on a demo ride.

Wife did not like the rear seat, needed some sort of back support. She stated it was loud back there.

When you "hammered down", you could hear the air box open up, which was nice cool to hear. 6th gear was nice and quite and smooth. Has an on board computer for, gas range, mpg, and hour meter for trips.

I liked it and which it would've come with ABS.

Cool

Sorry I missed you there yesterday John. From what I've read from other demo riders most agree on all points; be they positive or negative. I find that amazing on a newly released bike. I'm skeered to read too much into that!
