AVR Retrospective

Continuing with my last blog post, there were many things of note at the 2008 AVR. Here are some highlights...



The number of Visions was surprising. For a first-year model, there were far more Visions at the rally than expected. The running joke was that the AVR really stood for American Vision Rally. I lost count at over 50. A quick glance at license plates placed Visions from 10 states. Some as far away as New Hampshire.

Vision mods over the pond

Hi all from UK

As one of only three Vision owners in UK it's easy to feel a little isolated but thanks to the power of the internet, here I am, chatting like you're all just next door.

Beef Jerky and Art of Motorcycle Maintenance, err, Rallies

From Tuesday 8/12/09:

Beef Jerky and roadtrips are the foundation of mankind, or, at least one of the things you pair together when you talk motorcycle rallies. Boy, what an opening line, some explanation is needed.

Blog Post #1

Hello and welcome to my first ever blog entry. I'm sure you'll notice right away the rookiness of the whole thing and hopefully this will get better quickly.

I intend to use this space to focus on information about the Victory Highway and the Victory Motorcycle Club's Victory Highway Relay - aka V2V.

The VRN is on Victory's radar.

First off, Thanks again to Mike Dapper for making a point to talk about the Victory Riders Network as well as Vision-Rders.com on his VRA blog. I hope it attracts many new riders and that they enjoy what they find here. I hope to see him at the AVR next week.
