Ran Into a Former Vision Owner Today
« on: June 11, 2007, 08:54:09 PM »
I stopped to drop off a customers PC on my way home today.  We were standing outside of my car and he saw my "Biker Friendly" sticker on the back.  We got to talking and I told him about my bike but didn't tell him what it was.  I had said it was an 82 550 V-Twin and he said he had owned one of those too.  I took out my camera phone and showed him a picture and he said holy $#!+ Its a Vision! Thats what I had!  AS it turned out, both hea and a friend had owned Visions right her in Knoxville.  He said he wasnt sure if his friend still had his because they had lost touch and hadn't talked in a while.
He had gotten rid of his bike when "It started having problems", one of which was that it would die whenever he made a right turn. (I'll bet it was a misrouted throttle cable) and it wouldn't idle good and ran rough (dirty carbs, leaky YICS).
Even funnier is that he had just found an 82 fairing'd Vision in the Knoxville Bargain Mart for $1200.00 and was interested in it.  ;D
