It's been an incredible ride but I've purchased a new 07 HD softail deluxe so all I can do is wave at my former X riders when they smoke on by. The VTX site is probably the most informative site I've been associated with. Great bunch of guys here. Keep the shiny side up and don't forget to stop and help HD riders when they're broke down along side the road. The butt you save my be mine.

Good luck with your new ride, I must say I am sorry to see that VTX leave you as your mileage reports where always fun to hear. Ok, i'll bite, how was your trade in on the X ?

While I respect your decision to go with another name brand, I still have to ask. With over 111,000 on your X, why not buy another X? Oh well it will be interesting to see how many miles you can get out of your new bike. Best of luck to you and remember you are still welcomed here. Keep us posted as to how your new ride treats you.

You should have contacted an agent and then see about doing commericals for Honda!.......but since you got a Harley now they probally slam the door on you!

You traded your X with over 111,000?

That's almost like marrying your High School sweetheart having 75 wonderful years of marriage, then finding out she has cancer and divorcing her!

lol, jk That is incredible mileage. I am curious as to how much they gave you on a trade? I would have wanted to keep that bad boy just because...

Good luck on your new ride!

It's a dangerous job, but somebody's got to do it ...

... always my absolute pleasure ...

Who knows what tomorrow may bring ...

Few of us would have predicted this destination when we started this ride ...

Thanks for all the miles and smiles ...

so far ...

... so good ...

:wink:

but ...

opinions vary ...

all blessings ...

Dang oneup, I was hoping to see the day when your X hit 200,000. :lol:

So are you going to be able to find a CT solution for the HD, or do the tires last a lot longer, due to reduced torque and HP? That's a serious question, not trying to be a smart @ss. :)

Anyway, enjoy the ride ride man, and thanks for help in deciding on which CT to try out for my initiation into the Dark Side.

We are going to miss ya. You were the mileage king on the board. We looked forward to you telling us how many miles we had left on our X. Ride safely and check in sometimes.

He told them he only had 1450 miles on it. The HD guys understand a low mileage bike.

Soft Tail

Good Luck with your new ride. My son had a Soft tail 04. It had V&H pipes. Nothing sounds any better. Don't leave the site just because you got a Harley. Most riders would never put 111,000 miles on a bike before trading so don't let anyone here give you a hard time. As far as I'm concerned, YOU'RE THE MAN.


It would be interesting to know what a bike with that mileage would bring on trade.

Well now you have a job to do.

1) Put 111,000 on that nice Softail Deluxe
2) Shows us a comparison of the maint. records of both 111K milers.

That should be interesting.

Nice bike by the way - good luck and enjoy the ride! :D
