Too much flash for my tastes but sharp looking bike. Why did you trade a Vision for an Indian? Great deal on the Indian? Always wanted one? Or just a change in tastes?

Put 10k miles on the Vision in a year. Loved the bike. Always wanted an Indian and found a dealer in Lincoln Nebraska that helped me with that!</span>

Congrats! That's a beautiful bike. Quite a change from a Vision though in both looks and ride.

Andy,

Fit and finish
Indian- incredible
Vision- lots of parts did not line up, which caused a lot of squeaking while riding.

Ride (suspension)
Indian- rides better than I expected. Very smooth over bumpy roads.
Vision- incredible

Ride (comfort)
Indian- The big windshield puts you in a very nice pocket. The windflow and temperature control is great.
Vision- Car like pocket. Even with the lower deflectors, I was always sweating.

Ride (features)
Indian- No radio, abs, cruise, or power windshield.
Vision- I never listened to the radio, used the abs, cruise, or power windshied.

Overall, I bought the Vision with the hopes that my wife would fall in love with riding, which did not happen. The bike was great, but it was not the right bike for me. I never used a lot of the great features that are on the bike. I put 10,000 miles on the bike in a year, but rarely more than 200 miles at a time. I always wanted an Indian. When the rebates went into place prior to the 2014 being unveiled at Sturgis, I made the move. I am very happy with the Indian. It's a better fit for my motorcyle needs and i love the way it looks. Win win.

In conclusion, I would recommend Indian of Lincoln Nebraska for anyone considering an Indian. The GM, Justin, is a class act. He personally delivered the bike to me 500 miles away.

Really like the look its one head turning bike for sure. Congrats and enjoy the ride. I will say the one thing I would miss now that I have it is the cruise control.

Beautiful bike! I'm holding out for the new one!! I can't wait. I am hoping they can maintain the quality....and not revert back to the level of Victory in the paint dept.
My Xroads with 4500 miles has rust bubbling the paint pretty bad on the front fender around the entire front edge of the fender, and the paint scratches with the littlest contact.

Love the Indian--- and love the history that goes with it.

Hopefully, Indian will be a bit more selective in choosing their dealers than Victory was with theirs. I know you have to have dealers to get your product out but I think just about anyone who signed up for a Vic dealership, got one. Obviously, if someone wants a certain bike bad enough, they'll go a ways to get it.
Glad to hear you found a good dealer.

Bubba, The rebate made the price not much different than a Zach Ness Cross Country, so I was happy. My definition of a great deal is 'when both parties are happy'.

When I worked out the deal a couple weeks ago, the dealer in Lincoln had 3. Numbers 14,20, and 21. I believe they are all sold now.

I got number 20 in honor of one my favorite Chicago Blackhawk's, Brandon Saad.
