Good day,
How is everything with you, I picked interest on you after going through your short profile and deemed it necessary to write you immediately. I have something very important to disclose to you, but I found it difficult to express myself here, since it's a public site. Could you please get back to me on my private email(elizabethleveques@gmail) for the full details?
Have a nice day and God bless you,
elizabeth

Hey Gar "Professor":

Love the demo video's of the band...way cool and way good!

Hope you don't mind but I looked at your schedule in June and passed along your website and recommendation to my golf partner. Tom runs the St. John's Vianney (Brookfield) "major" festival and is the one that always books the bands. He has always gotton some of the very best local bands to play...this is the top festival attendance wise in the entire Milwaukee area.

Maria and I can't wait until June to see you guys...see you in April!

I've had it out three times so far this month so that was good for a little fix. Maybe next week it gets back into the 50's+ and can ride a bit after work.

CIA...great name for the band...can't wait to bring Maria and see ya! Do you guys sing songs about secrets of national security too?

Dear Gar, I applogize that i didn't get back to you sooner. I have always gotten emails when I had a message, as I did today. I was shocked to see the message was almost four months old. I just saw that I did answer you, so now I don't feel quite so bad. Back to handeling, the Wing handles better than the Valk, which handles great for a cruiser. But, I think you had to manhandle the Wing in compaired to the Vision. I think you are trying to put in too muck input. If you can compare the Vision to horses she has a very soft mouth. She requires very little input. Try just resting your hands on the grips and let the bike go down the road, until the road turns, then see how little pressure it takes on the right bar to turn right or left bar to turn left. I remember being tired after an aggessive ride on the wing, while I just feel invigorated after an aggressive ride on the Vision. II think you would like backrest I love mine. it is a Utopia. Very well made, very comfortable, and looks like it came with the bike from the factory.

Gar, it's good to have another bass player in the ranks. What's your axe? I'm using a Fender PJ Special. Judging from your band site, it looks like we have similar musical tastes as well as motorcycles.

Gar,

Thanks for the comments. The seat is a stocker and the luggage rack and backrest are the factory options ($$$$), but I bought it off the net as a demo. I like the look of the street and we mostly cruise and day trip so the only down side is carrying helmets everywhere (no locks). I passed on the Tour and got a street basic and saved about $6,000 over local prices. I'll add the windshield mover for sure and may go with the grips but that totals out to about $500. I think it handles crosswinds better than my Voyager XII did, and that's a big concern here in Kansas. Three days in the last month we've had winds over 40 MPH - crosswinds that high can make semi's really exciting.

Dear Gar.

I to think the Wing and Valk were good bikes, but I don't think either compare to the Vision's handling. I read your post, and can't relate. Wind just does not seem to affect my vision. It affects me (tries to blow my helmet off) but does not seem to affect the bike. I too have owned a lot of bikes, and this is the first with this quality. Is it possible your steering head is not ajustedas tightly as it should be? Dennis
