I always knew the VTX was a heavy bike. But I must say I have a new respect for this machine after having her lean on my thigh holding on for dear life and to top it off a full tank of gas! To be honest, had I laid her down I would not be able to come to terms with myself. I'll take the physiotherapy any day over a dropped bike! I think as motorcycle riders we all have a little bit of craziness in all of us.
