2008 Victory Vision Tour Review: I love my Vision

Motorcycle: 
Year: 
2008
Color: 
black
Review Summary: 

when this bike was released it drew my attention right away. I loved the smooth lines and the unique look. 
After I got it delivered I had Arlen Ness customize it some more, 21" front rims, 17" on the rear and they also raised the rear shock to give me more cornering clearance. 
All the brushed aluminum was powdercoated black and the short windshield got a black tint too. Plus all turns and taillight got a black color spray. You can still see them when they are on but they look really custom when they are off.

I have the touring version with the additional tour trunk but rarely use it. Heated grips are a must for me, HID nice are really bright

Best Features: 
looks, handling. Removable touring trunk, electric windshield
Improvements: 
the starter motor sounds really annoying the front brakes are a bit soft

Uwe I think my next bike is going to be a Vision. After riding with you and watching your bike I started to like the Victories. Lately I've been doing a lot of research on all my top choices and the Victory is coming out, way on top.

can't blame you, it's an amazing bike. I would sell you mine if I wouldn't love it that much Smiley-wink

LOL I would take it too

Maybe we can work something out. I could fall in love with an Indian Chief too Smiley-wink

Gotta see after I go back to work, hopefully in a few days
