This is my first bike in almost 40 years, having ridden Honda, Yamaha, Trumphy, BSA and Harley's in the distant past. It's great to feel the wind again. I picked this one up after much searching and looking (took my time over several months) and it finally came down to availability of service, dependability and price when I picked this VTX 1300. It has 4200 miles and has been serviced every thousand prior to my ownership. After riding this one for a couple of weeks I have only one complaint. It uses too DAMN much gas. And, I see on this forum that lots of VTX owners have this complaint. I only went 107 miles from fill-up to reserve this week. I'm a big guy (300 pounds) and it does have a windshield on it now but still disappointing. The price was right (below book) plus it already had a Mustang seat and saddle bags on it. I installed a Cobra Fat Freeway engine protection bar on it.
What do you other VTX 1300 guys have to say about this bike?
