I began riding dirt when I was a kid. Picked up a 1988 Honda Hawk about 10 years ago and wanted to add something bigger for longer rides and touring. Harley was never an option for me because of the inflated prices and reliability issues so I decided on the VTX. Originally looked at the 1300 but decided on the 1800 for the fuel injection, dual front discs and of course the bigger engine. Picked up a sweet 1800c with all the upgrades known to man including the F style wheels which I prefer over the wire wheels anyway. I am looking forward to more rides on the VTX and to pick the brains of the seasoned members of the forum. And if you’re ever in Colorado Springs look me up.
