A 2009 Victory Vision Premiere Touring Motorcycle
Space the final frontier…
I have been a fan of Star Trek since the 60’s, my Dad worked for NASA and now I work for NASA. I first rode a Victory Vision a year before I bought one; it was a 45-minute test ride that changed my life. At that point I started thinking about what rides I could do on this bike and what modifications I could do to it. The first thing I thought of was doing a Star Trek Theme.
I bought the bike in March 2009, and a month later I found an airbrush artist in the San Fernando Valley who had the skills to pull off the work I wanted to have done.
I knew I wanted the Original Enterprise on the right side of the bike, and wasn’t sure about the left side, and I wanted the console to have the Star Trek emblem. When I brought the bike over to Rafael Ramirez the artist, he suggested good/evil- to have the Klingon Bird of Prey on the left side of the bike.
During this time I began planning a Border-to-Border ride, from Mexico to Canada that my wife and son would take with me, it turned into a 12-day, 4000-mile adventure that is documented here.
Before we left for the ride I decided that I also wanted the front panel painted with the words “To Boldly Go…” and a star pattern. I told Rafael about this and he mocked it up and emailed it to me- he quoted the price as $600, then he also sent me one that had the Enterprise flying through the front of the bike. I asked him how much for the one with the Enterprise… he said $2000. My reply… “Damn you”. I told him to go ahead and do it.
I enjoy the looks, the thumbs
the Vulcan salutes I get while riding the Enterprise bike. I even added
Trek Theme song to the mp3 player that is on the bike, and I play it
pulling out of a crowded parking lot. It never fails to get smiles.
