Well, I have always loved the looks of the VTX.
After riding mostly Goldwings and Roadstars and everything in between...
I saw a beautiful red 2003 VTX1800R and just had to have it!
Bought it a few months ago with 3 feet of snow on the ground...only heard it run...still have not ridden the bike!
Minnesota winters are long, but the snow is finally gone, just waiting for some rain to clean the road sand away.
Hope it is as great a bike as everyone says it is!
