    Not really an apples to apples comparison. The Vison is much closer to the HD Ultra or Road Glide. The Street Glide has 1" shorter shocks than the Ultra so it gives up a lot in regards to suspension travel, also the Street Glide windshield and seat are more for looks and don't offer the wind protection or comfort of the Ultra or Road Glide.

    Have never ridden a Victory but replaced my Street Glide with a Road Glide and there is a big difference in comfort in stock form between these two.

    I have a 2008 Ness Custom Vision Tour Premium. Yes the looks are polarizing - people love it or hate it. Even though I work full-time I was able to put 8k miles on my Vision in the last 12 months, with the longest trip being 500 miles. So lots of trips in my local area. I love to ride the Vision. I can't tell you how many times people will walk over and talk to me while I get gas; or at a stop light. I was riding on the super slab a couple of weeks ago and a 4x4 jacked way up, pulls along side of me and the woman in the passenger seat [50ish] is giving me two thumbs up.
    I do PGR missions on a regular basis. Almost every mission another PGR member wants to talk about the bike, handling, reliability, etc.
    Oil change - take out the drain plug, remove the oil filter, and add new oil and filter. That oil change takes care of the engine and the transmission. One bolt one filter. Pretty easy.
    There is no perfect bike - we all have our preferences and dislikes, that is what makes the world go 'round' :clap

    I saw one of these at a gas station a few week ago. Cool looking bikes in person... I wasn't sure what the hell it was at first since I hadn't seen anything like it before. Walked around it a few times to take it all in and I was impressed.
