There's a Victory/BMW/Yamaha/John Deere dealership just north of us 20 miles and I've spent several hours there, not looking at tractors
The BMW part of the show room is temporary as they are building a new stand alone building just south and west of Des Moines. They've done well selling the the Vic lines, it's a huge corporate dealership and they have several stores around Iowa and just took on the BMW line this last fall, I think it's going to be a good acquisition for them
I have looked hard at bikes since last fall, especially touring bikes. The new Victory Cross Country shows promise but it's still not where I want to be protection wise from the elements. The Vision, IMO, is a wonderful bike if you like the looks.... like someone else wrote, it's a love/hate relationship. There's a terrific review in the Sept. '09 issue of Rider
comparing the touring cruiser shootout, Battle Of The Big Vees=Victory Vision, Star Venture, Kawasaki Voyager and Harley Ultra, it would be well worth your time to take a look at it.
One more thought--if you get a chance, take a look at the July '09 issue of Rider
and see which bike won Motorcycle of The year, very interesting. I don't think there is one perfect bike out there for me, I need at least 3 in the garage
But I think the divorce settlement would outweigh the advantage of such an arrangement
