Back on a VTX

Got a good deal on an 03 1800c with a bunch of aftermarket goodies. This will be my 5th and final bike. My 2nd bike was a 1300c. Really liked it, except i always wished it had more power.

Welcome to the VTXOA!
More power is nice and fuel stops will be more frequent!
When the low fuel light come on start looking for a station.
Seems to be what 1800C riders do.
Smaller tank than the other 1800s.

WHAT?
My 2003 VTX1800s does NOT have the smallest tank at 3.5 gallons 'filled to the top' plus a one gallon reserve? Should I feel better now?


Sorry, the only thing I don't like about my VTX is the small tank, especially when, two weeks ago, I saw this sign in Nevada (not my picture). I didn't dare to go faster than 55 mph for those 150 miles.

Welcome to the VTXASG (VTX Addition Support Group) .... where we gladly support each other's addiction.

I don't think you need any help with your addiction. Good choice. Enjoy the 1800!
