Smile New Vision Touring bike

Hey all this is my first offical post here. I just bought a new 2008 Black Victory Vision Premium with a bunch of extra goodies to go with it. So far this scoot looks like she will do very nice for my touring next season. I traded in my 06 Kawasaki Nomad which was just an awesome bike. I put 18000 plus miles on that ride in two years. That nomad never let me down. But im very happy with my new choice. I hope to meet and see others out there next year. With Sept now behind us and Old man winter coming looks like riding season is coming to close soon here in the NW. Cant wait for next riding season and really seeing what my new vision can and will do for me. Take care all and hope to ride with some of you NW/BC folks...

Nice ride! I just got to tesp pilot my boss', and I was very impressed. The seat is so comfortable, the controls and everything else felt like they built it for me. The windshield was great (being able to adjust it with a push of a button). The stereo cranked. The only thing that was weird, the mirrors. I had to get out of the way to use them, but, I hopped on itthe way he was riding it, and didn't mess with any adjustments, other than the radio and the windshield. I'd give the Vision a 10 out of 10. It really is an amazing machine. Everyone should try one, but beware, you'll love it.

New Vision Touring bike

HI all,

I am new to this forum so you guys have probably answered this question many times before, if so i apologise.

What is the best way to ensure that your bike doesnt get knocked off when you are touring, particulalrly when you are camping? Has anyone ever had this nasty experience?

Thanks

First off, welcome to the forum! We're always happy to see some new faces

Now, to your question... by knocked off, do you mean knocked over?
