I've ridden dirt bikes all my life but never a street legal motorcycle. Always wanted one, just never bought one. Now in my 40's I decided its time to get one or I never will. I looked at quite a few bikes but as soon as I sat on the vtx, I knew I had to have one. Took me a few weeks but I finally found a great deal on a 2007 vtx1300 and so far I love it. I look forward to being part of this community.
