Good evening. I just got my Vision a few weeks ago and found this site. It looks awesome, but it at is is basically a dead site. That?s a shame. This place looks fantastic. We need to find a way to get back up and going. There are ton of Vision owners still out there. Have a good night.

When Polaris announced the decision to stop production of the Victory line activity on the site nearly died. It continues to be a great resource for owners by searching for information found in the archive postings. Welcome to the Vision world, you will not be disappointed.

Welcome. It seems everyone is on one of the dozens of different Facebook pages these days, mostly asking the same questions over and over again, instead of using the great resource that this site offers. It's a shame really. This site has so much more to offer than any of the Facebook pages.

I sold my Vision back in the end of August. Not out of necessity or hate or unreliability. After about a week of selling it I sure did miss it but I was just thinning the heard for the upcoming retirement and downsizing. Sold four of the six bikes. This site was the best for being a no drama, no bs and with the most knowledgeable members.

I somed up the reason of the in activity of this site is to how good theses bikes are out of the gate that there?s not much to do or say about them. Their just that good and the people that buy them used, usually are not nubies to motorcycles.

I was just reading a review of the new 2022 Goldwing and thinking about a comparison to the Vision.

Power wise roughly the same but the Vision had the V-twin rumble that feels good.
The first thing I did after reading the review of the GW was to see if anyone made highway pegs. Because after looking at it, I never felt the Vision never needed any because of the long floor boards gave so many options.

Then the article went in to talk about the 850lbs of weight and never complained about it. When the Vision came out, that?s all you heard is how heavy the bike is. Then the GW only has 4.2? of suspension travel. Then I was looking at tip over protection, and nope not on the GW. So then I looked up on rear wheel removal on the GW. The Vision has that beat in ease.

By the end of the GW review, I couldn?t think of a single reason to buy it over a used Vision. I think if Polaris would have put the Cross Country Tour rear end on the Vision as a variation, it would have sold big. Update the dash to a new TFT display with TPMS, phone connection and Google Map integration, change the headlight/turn signals look. Then add the new Challenger motor and the Vision would still be the best touring bike built, not saying it?s still not.

I agree with most of your assessments. I went and tried out the new GW when it came on the market. It is too tall for me, has the same luggage capacity as my Vision, and still has the limited foot position. It's a nice bike, but other than the more modern audio system, it doesn't offer any advantage over my Vision. I still have my Vision.

I took my first short trip on my vision 2 weeks ago. I really enjoyed it. Still getting used to it, coming from my v4 venture. We are getting to know each other though and I think she?s going to be a nice ride.
