Breaks my heart to be thinking about it, but have been giving some thought to selling my Vision.  

I've been a loyal Victory owner since '04, first with a TCD maxed out with all the options, then an '06 Indy Red Kingpin Deluxe, then an '09 Vision Touring (currently in Street form) that has tons of Lloyd's upgrades & custom paint.

Over the years, I've been involved as a Secretary with our Local Victory riding club and rode on many trips including Spirit Lake and Thunder Beach with our group.  My wife and I have made many new friends and have lots of fond memories along the way.

Like all things in life, our priorities change as we get older.  We are building our forever house, enjoying being new grandparents, in the process of taking over a small family farming operation, and I can retire from my full time job anytime I wish.  Our health is still good and we have several other new hobbies we are exploring.

With Polaris dropping the Victory line, we were deeply saddened and disappointed.  We thought about trading to an Indian, but they don't ride anything like the Vision and I don't like all the fake parts trying to make them look nostalgic.  Looked at the new Honda's, Yamaha's, and BMW's, but they are not our cup of tea and didn't like the way any of them rode either.  HD's may be an option, but they are a serious step down from what I'm used to.  We just don't ride that much anymore and enjoy taking the old street rod out instead with the grandkids.

For those of you that has sold bikes in the past, any advice on the best way of going about it?  I know the value of these bikes have plummeted after looking online.  I see '09 visions selling from $4k-$10k on cycletrader and not nearly as nice ours. Is that a good place to advertise it?  If you've sold your bike, any regrets afterwards not keeping it?
