Vision Rec

Thanks to those who have already given an input to my query re Visions. I realize now that I should have given some background. I live in the north of Scotland, have 3 recumbents at the present. Short wheel base Kingcycle + fairing front and rear, a long wheel base Peer Gynt and a Bikee AT. I have done about 45 000 +miles in the last 7 years. I am looking to get another short wheel base and quite like the look of the Vision, and it has a web type seat. I had a trike that had a hard seat, could'nt live with it. Most of the European recumbents today seem to have hard seats.
I hope that clarifies. Vision are available in the UK, so I am a wee bit limited in what I can buy.
Thanks

I ride a Vision R-44 but I must confess, it's the only factory built bent I've been on. My other experiences are with my homebuilts. My Vision, however, is simply a joy to ride.

I have always thought (just my opinion of course) that Vision builds the prettiest bent bicycles.

Good luck!
