Today is January 01/2019, and I bought my VTX18C2 on 12/31/2018. Funny thing is that I bought my ST1100 on 12/31/2015, but I couldn't ride it for 2 months due to my broken arm sustained in a crash on my Kawasaki Mean Streak in November 2015. Bought the ST with the money I got from my insurance company from the accident. Now I am just receiving my Settlement from that accident, and I went out and got my true replacement, for the Streak, the VTX. I love the ST1100, but it was the same ride day in and day out, and I had to get a VTX to accompany it. The Streak was a fun ride, but the VTX 1800 over the Streaks 1600, no match.
Today, I finally took the VTX for my first ride. It was a sunny January 1st, but the San Ana winds were blowing cold. But the VTX took it without being blown around, unlike what my ST would have done with all it's plastic covering it so the wind can't get through, so it makes it an unhappy ride in high winds.
Anyway I wasn't letting the wind stop me. Drove the 65 miles to Palmdale to visit my brother, who has a Yamaha Raider. So took a picture of us both on our bikes.
