If your on a budget go for the Victory, there are some awesome deals out there right now, look around online to see what I mean. I basically got a brand new 6 year old bike bike ( less than 3k when I bought it) for 1/3 of the original MSRP. Sounds like your well aware of the company closing down and all that so i won't warn you about it.
I personally think the Kingpin is the best of the steel frame vics, with the inverted forks and better matched size wise set of tires it's probably the best handling of the bunch. I love mine.
Dang Mike, those two Visions look like aliens guarding the other Vic. Weird photo like that but rather cool too.

I posted that picture once with the caption "My two Visions keeping close eye on their wild little sister" :)
Well, there was a time I didn't look at everything so it must have slipped by.:wink2:

Valky's in my price range I think are still carbureted. That flat 6 is amazing, but the prospect of 6 carbs eventually needing serviced buried that deep in the bike is a bit daunting (and this coming from a former '80s magna owner!)

I'm trying really hard to get FI on the next one just for that reason.
I've had enough fun balancing 2 carbs a few times, 6 of them.. shudder.....
I agree Mike. My wife's BMW gave me plenty of practice but they are easy. Six though. Yikes. Probably easier if not using mercury sticks like I was. I mean, surely there is a better way by now.
