Since the VTX is a new bike, I'm sure there's still a lot of useful discussions that can take place here. If we could only keep the Harley lovers/Japanese cruiser bashers out of here, this might be a decent topic.


P.S. Squidwannabe - If your Harley actuall makes those kind of numbers, then it's obviously modified. Anybody can modify their bike and get bigger numbers. My question is, if you wanted a bike with that much power, why didn't you just buy a Japanese bike that comes from the factory with that kind of power? They certainly make them. Why spend a ton of money on a Harley, then turn around and spend another ton of money just to get a fair amount of power?

Well its simple Mr. Know it all ... A harley was built for speed and Power .. If I modify a Honda not only would it just look and sound stupid, but it probably wouldn't hold up.. Plus I'd rather have a Harley sportster , They are one of the best handling bikes in the world ...

BTW .... Have you checked your Email as of late ?

Squidwannabe is just havin' a little fun, though he had me fooled! I do have to agree that Harleys are made purely for speed and handling (he he).

Pete My last scooter was a V-Max, and the one before that was a V-65 Magna. Sorry to cut this message short, but the Honda shop just called to let me know they got their very first VTX in today. I have check this beast out! More later.

Holy Moley! That VTX is absolutely gorgeous! And I thought I had the fever before! No test ride though. The one I looked at today is already spoken for, and so is the next one they get. Looks like I'll have to take a road trip to Denver to test ride one. Our local Honda dealership is just too small to get VTX's in any quantity. I'm sure Denver will have some large enough dealerships where they'll have a few on hand, and maybe they'll let me ride one.

I did get to sit on this one. I was surprised at how low the seat hight is, considering that massive V twin. When I say massive, the jugs are as big around as a bowling ball! I'm 6 ft. tall, and while sitting on it, my feet were flat on the floor and my knees were bent quite a bit. The seat is nice and wide too. It should be very comfortable for long hauls. The chrome on this thing is absolutely beautiful as well.

I will, somehow, someway, get to test ride one.

You have boobs as big as bowling balls! I though you were talking about a motorcycle!
