Default I'm a Vision Ace.........

Spotted my 5th Victory Vision on the road this morning making me an Ace, that's the one I followed this morning for awhile, the one at work, the one a week or two ago, the one I saw on the pass and one last year.......

Pretty durn good I'd say, Victory's in general are thin on the ground. Of course there's a multiline dealer in Auburn that pushes them pretty strong so I guess it salts the pot locally, still a rare bird.

Sure doesn't have a Huffy Cambridge Cruiser with an old Hodaka motor stuck in it, you can bet on that...

I've only seen one, and after laughing until my insides hurt, I was still able to ride away safely.

I salute the Polaris designers for producing a dramatically futuristic styled touring bike that retains the viceral appeal of a throbbing long-stroke American V-Twin.

I wouldn't buy one with your money, let alone mine, but salutes are free.

Of special note was the thoughtfully provided tether point for the owners seeing eye dog......

Careful, now! You don't want to get a collapsed lung.

I'm cool Pulley. I just need to close my eyes next time a Bad Vision rolls by. For some reason when I saw it I heard circus music too. Weird.

I've seen exactly two in the last five years. One on the Hollywood Freeway going south, and one taking the off-ramp to Quartzite from the I-10 coming back from Phoenix.

Mark Blackwell must be sh!tting bullets by now. Wonder when Fuji Industries cancels the bike division? Just what the world needs, another V twin cruiser.

Maybe I can mount one of those 250cc Virago motors on my chair? Run some megaphones, like I did on the lawnmower. Bet the neigbors don't miss that...
