Hello all, started searching some forums to learn about my new to me bike (2008 VTX1800F1) and engage is some meaningful conversation regarding riding ETC. this is my second forum and I learned about it from a different VTX forum. I am happy to be here and hope to be able to pick your brains and learn more about the new to me bike. In the past I had a 1982 VF750 Magna. it was a blast to ride and held up to all my stupid young guy shenanigans! Today I think much different and even have a helmet. :eek:

safety is a priority and I always welcome suggestions there too.

nice to meet everyone !!

Welcome Charles. Lots of nice folks here and tons of info. Pull up a chair and start reading (until the weather changes and we can all be back in the saddle).

Welcome,

when my Mom called me Charles.. I KNEW I was in BIG trouble :)

I can not think how being without a motorcycle for 15 years... or 1 year.
50 years of riding.. NO GAPS.

I got my 2005 F2, New 2/2005 first week of production... 90,000 miles and counting.

Welcome!

I am also a rider that spent some time without a bike though not nearly as long as you did.

I found my nearly new VTX1300c that was kept in a climate controlled garage and only had 2256 miles on it less than 3 years ago. It has over 10,000 miles now and I am planning another trip down south along with a bunch of small trips for this summer/fall.

I have even piqued the interest of my wife and may get her on her own bike or perhaps a three wheeler. She doesn't like being "just a passenger", so I hope to further encourage her to ride herself!
