Where are the UK VTX riders?

Are there no UK VTX owners on this forum now?

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.

If you recognise the scenery in the background of our pic, you will realise that we are based in Cumbria. It's Kirkstone Pass, BTW.

Here's another one, however I only recently re-joined the biking fraternity after many years break.

Having sourced the market, couldn't resist the VTX [1300]. Even my wife thinks it looks cool.

Intention is to do 'ride-outs' but only when I regain the situation where man and machine feel as one (not quite there yet).

So .... watch for my name/face at future events [incidentally, I'm based in Swindon - somewhat south of you]

You might want to try the following link as I believe this is the old site hence the aged date entries:-

http://www.hondavtx.co.uk/html/club_page.html (or find the reference in the old site forum if this doesn't work)

Hello to all UK VTX Riders

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.

Hi Gordy

We were at a HD rally the other week and found a red 1300 beside us when we pitched the tent. It's the only other VTX we have come across so far!
