Parting is such sweet sorrow.

I have had the pleasure of being part of the VTXOA community since 2013, But, Alas…I couldn’t pass up a “NEW” 2016 Honda F6B Goldwing.

Traded the VTX in on Friday, 5 July, at Honda of Houston. Didn’t get as good a price as a “tried and true VTXer” might have paid but still got enough to bring the F6B down to $12,777. Now I have a new bike with warranty that performs as well as the 1800.

Thank you to ALL the members here for posting great information and advice over the years. Most of what (little) I know about motorcycling was learned here.

I’ll check in from time to time, but remember to be safe and…”Enjoy the Ride, Here on the Forum and on the Road!”

Nope, there is no delete account option on this forum.

What? You've got a new bike and now you can't pass on what you've learned to those who still have one? Or are going to get one? Nobody's gonna turn you in for not owning a VTX, a lot of us are former owners just like you.



C'mon back anytime you just want to hang around with your "old" crowd Steve.
