I just picked up a 2002 VTX 1800S with 13k miles. Very excited about this bike! Looking forward to some great rides!

Since I’m new to the VTX1800 are there any specific threads I should be looking at?

The fuel pump regulator should be replaced unless you know that has already been done. Flush clutch & brake hydraulic fluids every 2 or 3 years or sooner if it's turning brown, should be clear in the window, same with changing the engine coolant every couple of years or so, clean and lube the shifter pivot point once or twice a year. Also, with 13K miles it may have the original tires still on it, if so replace those before riding it anywhere regardless of how much tread is left. Welcome from New Mexico

Take a good look into the fuel tank.
See any rust???
It has been parked for a long time.
