Went to "Squid Night" last night and one of my friends rode up on a VTX. He let me take it for a spin "around the block" (about 4 miles).

Who the hell said those were fast!? Don't take me wrong, it's a really nice ride, but about as exciting as watching Lawrence Welk reruns. Just another cruiser I'm afraid. Nice bike, just not my taste.

One of your friends? As in plural? Liar.

Oh yeah, I meant to say "my friend." After he got rid of his SuperHawk, he was going to buy a 929 Erion Edition, but his wife whipped him into buying a cruiser. What a puss.

Does the VTX vibrate much ?

It's all about the look and the sound Paul. That is one nice Harlll... Yamaha Mister.

Paul, I'm wondering what the VTX sounds like./ Is it Harley-esque, or tame like normal Honda fashion? Nobody has one around here yet.

Honda cruisers are super silent from the factory usually, I think. Just going off what few of them I've heard. A little bit of aftermarket fun and I bet it's loud as hell.

True, but they did give a little more character than usual to the VTX (I've heard the VTX a couple times now). It sounds good, but you're right, it would benefit greatly from aftermarket pipes.
