    Anyone considering a new touring motorcycle should check out the two new Victory touring models. I own two Harley's but am looking hard at these two technically impressive motorcycles. Maybe the competition will get the MoCo off it's duff and come up with something innovative. Check these Vics out.

    I saw those in a magazine the other day. Looks like the RD King and Street Glide have some competition!

    I looked at those the other day at the local dealer. Some of it was quite impresive but I think the back end of them are quite ugly. But then again, that's just me

    I agree totally. Too much Arlen Ness plastic drama. I think the back is VERY ugly. I can't stand fairing either. I do like the headlight on the one model, thats about it. No thanks.

    I just don't like their looks, plain and simple. Maybe a great machine but not a style in the bunch I like.

    Just can't get comfortable with the styling, especially the rear ends.

    The rear end styling does take some getting used to but the rear end does not a motorcyle make. JMHO but these machines are definitely not in the "metric wannabe" class; no comparison between one of these and a metric touring bike. The only comparison one can make is to the two H-D models that these two will compete with. They are technically superior to what the MoCo is putting out right now in every way; styling aside. I am looking forward to a ride on the CrossRoads and Cross Country but the local dealer says November/December before they get any. I am glad to see another American motorcycle developing some serious competition for the MoCo. I did not consider the Vision a serious competitor but I think you will see more and more of these two new touring Vics on the road.
