m109r convert

All,
I joined VTXOA in 2009, when I was trying to decide between a VTX and an M109R. I ended up buying the M109R then, and kept it until 2016. I sold the M109R and took 2 1/2 years off of riding. During that time, I would occasionally see what was on the market, check some forums (including this one), and almost bought a bike a few times. I kept being drawn to the VTX 1800N. Well I pulled the trigger yesterday and purchased a 2005 VTX1800N3 with 24,000 miles. It had a quick detatch fairing (I think it was Memphis Shades) and some saddlemen leather bags, but I decided to remove them.

I am in Wooster, Ohio.

I look forward to many fun years and miles with the VTX.

Have a backseat ordered. The seat is the next order of business. Any suggestions? Do seats for the 1800r or 1800s fit the N? I haven't researched it yet.

Only the driver seat interchange between the N an R/S. The passenger seat is different. The Ultimate is the most comfortable seat IMO especially for long distance riding. I have use a Corbin Solo with a driver backrest on mine.
