Well, I went and got that VTX1800 I was talking about. VTX1800F Spec 3 in Tribal Silver. It's not a GL1800, but it sure is a lot of fun. It's got great power, LOADS of torque, and it just looks great. Flew all the way to Chatanooga, TN to pick it up, and rode it 880 miles back home to NY. It was a great experience, and I'd do it all over again if I had to. I'm glad I finally have a cruiser and I don't think I'm going to have another sportbike for a long time. I've done some group rides, and on Oct. 1st there is a VTX get-together in Port Jervis, so I think I will be attending that. I hope you guys get to see it at Cats-cade. I will be there again this year with something a bit more appropriate :lol: And special thanks to Bulldog for steering me in the right direction. Without your help I'd be riding another sportbike. He swears he didn't push me to buy the bike, but he knew what he was doing when he planted the VTX seed in my head :lol:

Bought new VTX1800C in Nov. 03. Added V&H Big Shots and 26,000 miles of trouble free cruisin'. Everything perfect except the size of my prostate. Trade it in on Wing in June '06. The man buying my X is getting a great bike. Good luck with yours (bike).

Nice bike. My next door neighbor just bought a VTX....black. After I bought my wing in July he kept coming over and checking it out and we'd talk about it and I'd say..."why don't you get one" and he would always say "no I'm a cruiser not a tourer". So bout two weeks ago he got his VTX. So now I say "cool neighbor.....let's ride" !
