KC Area X Riders

I agree with you all - snow needs to GO! Ugh!

That said, I can happily say I've been able to get out and ride at least once every month for the past 28 consecutive months (before that I didn't have a bike). I often tell family and friends (esp those from far away) that I refuse to winterize my bike. We've not had a winter yet where there isn't ONE weekend where I can't get the bike out. So far it's been true (knock on wood).

I live in Shawnee. I've got friends in Bonner Springs who ride Hondas (not Xes). I'd love to include them on any rides we can put together.

Once summer is upon us there are many rides scheduled --

New here.

Just signed up on VTXOA today. Crossing my fingers that everything goes according to plan. I should pick up an '03 VTX 1800 S Friday evening. Figured I'd say hello here and see what is going on nearby.

happy friday LoneJake welcome to the board

Thanks for the welcomes! Currently I am out of Pleasant Hill, southeast of Lee's Summit. I picked up my new ride on Thursday night. Inspection and registration completed, headed up to Weston with some friends Friday for a late lunch. Sunday I rode over to Carrollton/Sedalia and back. First thing up, checking the exhaust and a possible valve adjustment. The ticking is quite loud. All in all I am quite happy with the VTX and can't wait to get some more trips in this summer.

Congrats on the bike. Your going to love the bike for sure. I haven't meet one person that didn't like the X. I know I love mine! I have done a lot of work to it, with more work to come. But if I were you I would check the valves first because they are usually what causes the ticking noise. How many miles are on the bike?

Your have a great looking bike there. Looking at all the mods people have done here at OA, it's idea overload. Mine has just under 16k. The former owner told me he just did a valve adjustment, admittedly his first, just before he put it up for sale. I should probably hear another X before I go off the deep end looking for a cure that doesn't need found.

Thank you. A lot of time, money, and love put into the bike. Well when we have a bike night you will get to hear a few I'm sure. :D

Just bought my VTX yesterday. Would be great to meet up and do a little riding with some other VTX owners! Looks like I live pretty close to some of you --- I'm about 9 miles east of the KCI Airport --- very close to the intersection of 169 Highway and I-435.

Thanks!

Looks like we live pretty close to each other. Still have your VTX?

I read (a few posts back on this thread) that you like to ride to Weston? I used to live in Weston --- know quite a few good roads to ride in that area. Let me know if you want to go riding sometime! :)
