We've only had our bike 3 weeks. Not many VTXs about on the roads here it seems...some folk don't seem to know what they are when they see one. Came across a 1300 this weekend at a rally so at least we know there is one other owner in the UK! We'll be looking to you US guys for help on parts etc as not much selection of choice over here. We're just put the chrome trim on the tank so that's a start!
Sorry that the board does not have more inputs. I lived in England for 10 years with the US Forces at Mildenhall and really miss the place. The family grew up there as my daughters were 2 when we got there and going to middle school when we got back to the states. One of them actually married an American that she went to school with in Newmarket, a local English Primary. The only thing about Indiana is that the summers are a little longer and a lot hotter. Winters still do not favor riding. Bought my 03 1800 c last year and it is a real joy to ride. Say hi to all the blokes over there and maybe more will get on the board from time to time.
where abouts in the uk you based,
there is an active group in the uk that are getting moving as a group over the last couple of months.
ther are 74 of us on the uk forum,
we have had 3 weekends away, and numerous trips up to yorkshire or the ace cafe in london.
couple of the guys even managed a trip abroad to holland.
2 biggest areas at the moment are london and the home counties and northern england.
although the other areas are growing as well
At long last there are more UK riders of a brill machine.
I have been a member of the forum for what seems forever and eventually stopped looking in as I was fed up with the boys in the US having all the nice weather and gear and bragging about it all the time. Although the guys have helped me out over time with gear and advice.
I am in not so sunny Urmston, Manchester.
I ride a 1300 with pride and have only seen 3 others on my travels.
Where is everyone else from?
I ride because I can.........
I ride a VTX because I ride the best.
