I like the design of the Victories it's original.

Ironically perhaps, the Vision's styling really comes together when it is converted by Lehman into a trike.

Lehman Trikes USA | The Premier Name in Three-Wheel Motorcycles

I could see in about 10 years wanting a basic 8 Ball syle Cross Country model with some pipes on it. As a sport bike rider, I appreciate the tech that has gone into the Vic's engine and frame design. The use of inverted forks on any bike is also big plus with me. Extra rigidity and steering precision, modern looks. Gotta have 'em. The Vision is not by cup of tea style wise, but the Cross Roads and Cross Country are fine.

I just need the kids gone, time to tour and the body to break down a little more. Definitely down the road, I will own a Victory

Wow that actually looks pretty good duken.... The trike looks almost like a seamless edition rather than looking like an addon.

But where are the FTL flight vanes and rocket booster pods?

Hooooo!

That is some unfortunate styling, isn't it?

At least they didn't put a centerline exhaust on it...

The styling of all the Nessies has grown familiar and old. I don't like the look.
