    Talking Brand new X owner, and loving it!!!

    I just bought my first vtx! I got a 2003 vtx 1800 R with 12000 miles. It has all the bells and whistles that I wanted except a seat. I. Would love to get together and ride with some people on of these weekends iif anyone is near westland area. I had a shadow 750 ace before this and my god what a difference. I think I'm gonna love this bike. I have only put 177 miles on it as I only rode it home from indiana yesterday night, but am excited to do a lot more.

    Anyone from metro area want to ride with a newb?

    Also where do you guys get the cool colored map to keep track of your trip? I don't like the mytriplogs as its really plain.

    hey, hilt, I was in your area today! Rode up from Fort Wayne, IN to visit a buddy who lives in Macomb, MI. We met at Novi, so I drove right by westland, I think... not too bad for a day trip. Hope you are enjoyin' that VTX I sure enjoy mine!

    on your upgrade. My first bike was an 03' ACE that I decided to keep when I bought my X.

    If you decide on riding on the west side of the state let me know. I would be happy to ride with you. I run up and down that side alot.

    Good luck on the road and hope you enjoy your new bike.
