oh I forgot the gear box. the T-bird wins.smooth and like a swiss clock.
on the Victory its hard to change gears.I mean it feels like they get stock on first and second,you will have problems getting it in neutral. I heard that they are trying to fix this in newer models but mine Sucks. :-)
Yep, excellent posts. I said before, I liked the Victory. It had the best seat I ever sat on and it did most everything well. I did feel the brakes were quite a bit better in the TBird and it definitely had the upper hand in power and handling. With that said, I could enjoy owning a Victory, but the TBird suits my needs better.
If the Thunderbird didn't exist I would still own my Rocket III, but the Victory or my old Valkyrie would be a very close second choice.
The Vegas is definitely not a passenger-friendly bike. Your wife deserves a Vision!
It is a crime against humanity to put bags on a Vegas. I did it twice using Easy Brackets. Yuck!
I really, really, really loved my 07 Vegas as a solo bike.
But after owning a Vision it was easy to trade it in on a 2nd Vision.
Good luck & ride safe.
I love the vision, a bit too big for me, although a friend of mine who is not the most advance rider has one and is able to come with me to Mt Hamilton RT130 in san jose ca. a narrow, bumpy,gravel,cracks,coyotes,only one car can fit, bad ass little road and the vision handles and takes it like a winner.
Cory ness would drop one for me but...I need to get a better job.
