Well Guess it is time to jump in here my name is Tom and I am an official HD convert. After many years of looking at the Victory line I got on one for the first time last September looking for options on moving up in years from my then touring model. As they say: "Ride One, You Will Own One" As I say: True story!! Made the jump and not looking back for one second. Absolutely love my Vision for the comfort and power plant it provides. Not to mention everyone that walks by has to stop and ask about my Vision. Even the SOBs (some other brand) owners have very little bad to say about it.

Anyone need some used tee shirts........LOL

As other have said the information here is an outstanding resource and big thank you to those that provide so much insight!

Hi everybody,
I'm the proud owner of a Hammer S 2012
I live and ride in Gran Canaria, Canary Islands, Spain
as far as my knowledge , there's the only one Hammer riding here, in fact I think there're only five, maybe six Vics in the islands.
I was a HD ( for twenty years) rider, until I tested the Victory cruisers . I use to ride between 300 km - 500 km per week, I use to say that the bike is my personal trainer.
Sorry about my poor english due is not my born language.
Best regards

Howdy!

New Vision just north of Fort Worth.
Rode the Demo Tour and had to own one. Picked up the 2013 Vision two weeks ago and love it! Fixed the mirrors and added mud flaps so far.

Madrid, --- Spain
Its time to introduce myself: I live in Madrid (Spain) and bought, two weeks ago the first Victory Vision bike, imported into Spain by Polaris back in July 2010. It's Cherryred, in inmaculate condition and now has only 32.000kms. It came with some extras like (1) lower air deflectors, (2) reverse gear, (3) GPS, (4) oil temperature stick, (5) stage one exhaust, (6) chrome front tipover protection and the (7) fairing rubber toe kick protector.
Regards to everybody.

Glad to have you on the Vision Riders site and WELCOME!! As mentioned, be sure to post some pictures of your travels there in Spain so I for one can shake my head and be jealous. Take care. Vlad.

I'm a new 2013 Vision owner for about 3 months and 2,000 miles. I've been on thie website on a daily basis to learn as much as I can about this incredible bike. After the first 500 miles, I had Arlen Ness put on the Big Honkers, frt/top perf filter, PCV and Autotune. The bike is like going from a scooter to a bike after the mods. It definitely have better low and mid range power now, but still nothing compared to a sports tourer. The pipes are a little louder than I expected, but I'm use to them now.
Out here in sunny northern California, I've taken the bike out when it was 36 degrees and the weather protection is phenomenal. Sorry, that's considered pretty cold here in CA.
Does anyone know how often the PCV and/or Autotune needs to be adjusted?

It's 6 degrees out and snow is on the ground, and I just became the owner of a new Cross Country Tour! It hasn't been prepped yet and until the weather improves I'll wait sort of patiently while the guys at 3A Motors put on the Premium Tour taller windshield, passenger grab handles, drivers backrest, and install the reverse kit.

I did get a 5 mile road test on it a few days ago when the weather warmed into the 30s here in MA. It seemed to be everything I want and the batwing really made for a turbulence free ride.

The one challenge I can see is to get some custom mods on the passenger seat area, raising it up 2-3 inches so my short wife can see over my tall shoulders and get a forward view.

Glad to be here,
Joe

Hi all. I just picked up my '12 Vision last weekend in Denton TX. I've been wanting one since they came out but have just always had something else. Joined a while back so I could lurk, now finally have the bike. Will be selling a Yamaha Venture.

Well I suppose I need to post a picture of my ride here. The first picture was when I first got it heading towards the North Shore of Lake Superior (Spooner, WI). Oh yea that oil spot under it was from the HD that left just before I landed for some gas!! Then I found this artist here in North Texas that is nationally known for his work. He was the voice of the Monster Truck Jam for years and painted the original Grave Digger trucks. Well Tex talked me out of my bike for a month just got it back today!!
