Hello Richard, welcome to the VTXOA.

A Sportster to a VTX, a bit larger.
I bought my son a used 1200C a few years back. He is fast with his 125 pounds. I have not beat him yet.

The VTX is a great ride, it has a few issues.
Starter switch requires clean and lube.

Shifter pedal needs clean and lube also.
ICM wires break on occaision. Read the Step by Step.
Have fun!

2005 1300c Red, Mustang seat, HK 2.5 straights. Leds for safety-front & back. 195,004 VTX miles
