Picked up my 2005 VTX 1800S Friday evening. So far I've got 40 miles on it on the ride home from the dealer in the dark and temp in the upper 30's. Haven't ridden a big bike since I got rid of my last HD 20 years ago. Been riding an 1980 Yamaha XS650 chopper I built, now a trike and an a 72 CB750 I'm building a de-rake hardtail out of. Looking forward to having a bike that I can hit the road and cruise at 80 MPH in comfort

Got her licensed today. Had to do some cutting / modifying to the bracket to look right to me. The stock before looked like something for a Europe bike. Suppose to in the 60's tomorrow so I plan to a few miles in

Lived in Daytona Beach a couple years in the 80's when I was going to the old AMI (American Motorcycle Institute) Hope to retire somewhere near there
