Cherry Poppin' in Crystal Lake

I took my first ride on my new (to me) VTX 1800 yesterday. After riding a 600cc bike for the last 4 years, I finally upgraded to the VTX 1800 last November. I left it at the dealership for winter storage and had them deliver it to my house yesterday. Sunday is supposed to be nice, and wifey had plans for me to go to a show at the high school she works at. I just got out of that and the day is now wide open for getting used to my new VTX!

Welcome to the house of VTX

This is the place you can learn everything you want to know about your new ride. And there are quite a few riders in Illinois, you should be able to hook up with some of them. Kind of late right now, but I am sure others will chime in later.

I was at honda northwest on Thursday to pick up my new front tire and brakes for the bike. They had 7 Xes on the floor 2 1800 and 5 1300. I think they were all silver

Skiwoods...welcome to the board...hope to hook up with you on ride sometime soon. You will see on the board that there are a lot of X'ers in the Chicago area. That new 1800 looks good....prolly looks good alongside that Cessna of yours too!

skiwoods,
