I will be putting up my X for sale soon!
Inquiring minds may need more info on this interesting development.......... :?: :?: :?:
Well, here's what it comes down to......... I really, I mean REALLY like the foot forward seating position of the X, but my better half isn't enthusiastic about riding passenger on it for longer trips, she prefers the Goldwing as a passenger. Well, the problem with that is that the seating position on the Wing puts your feet slightly back towards being under your butt and thus puts more stress on the knees. I've been a machinest for my entire working career, spending 8 to 9 hours a day standing or walking on concrete floors and after 20 some odd years of doing so my knees really hurt when I come home and sit down for a few minutes. I'm sure loosing some weight will help, but I'm also sure the pain will never completely go away unless I get a new pair of knees. What it boils down to is that the new Victory Vision appears to have all the creature comforts of the Wing for the rider (even more if you include the electrically adjustable windshield) as well as that comfortable foot forward seating position complete with HUGE rider floorboards that offer many foot positions, the key thing for us will depend on Pegster's comfort level as a passenger.
Here is a pic of the new Victory Vision with rider and passenger:
