Yea 7.27 gets real close to 190-200, Seen some 550-600 turbo busas run 7.teens at 199, street bike shootout bikes, dot tire and no wheelie bar bikes, takes lots of talent and $$$$$$$$$$$$$$

Wills got the talent, but not the $$$$$$$.

Fortunately he's got a brother in the MC business plus he's a damned good wrench himself!

I test Drove one. The ride was nice.

It is incredibly agile and light and easy to handle for such a huge bike.

My only complaint is regardless of the position of the windshied, there was a lot of turbulance.

Clyde, we had a guy on a Victory Vision at our "Cruiser Day", and it was an incredible bike!

Here is a pic (thanks to Pauline James of URRacingpix.com):

173deleted

A buddy of mine was looking at a newer Harley to replace his Sportster that he's had since '80 somethin', and when comparing at the local shop, he found that he was able to get more options (like an intercom, stereo, and other niceties) for the same price as the Harley.

When I took a spin on one, I loved the way it handled and especially the bawls the engine has! Yeah, it was comfortable too... really comfortable.

I rode the Vision when they were giving the test rides at the bike show... is a very nice bike, it rode better than my Ultra... Very comfortable bike... If you are doing any long distance rides bagger bikes are the way to go. i'm doing a 3300 mile trip next month and i'm taking the Ultra. i love my sport bike but is not something that i want to ride over 3000 miles in 10 days...

Seriously, one of the ugliest motorcycles ever created. It is horrendous. It's like a three bag woman. Wear one on your head, have her wear one on her head in case one breaks, and leave one at the door in case somebody walks in.

UGLY

Go ahead and get a cruiser, but keep a sportbike for those days you feel "young". I enjoy riding my M109R on the days I just want to relax and cruise.
