Hello everyone!

I have made a couple of posts, and I was reminded to post an introductory thread.

My name is Adam, and I live in Columbus, Ohio. I started riding big boy bikes about a month or so ago, after having been on nothing but a moped about 15 years ago. It was great! I bought my VTX-1300R a few weeks ago. I am slated to take the MSF course this weekend. Since buying the bike--and even before--I have been on this board reading just about everything that is out there. The information you guys have provided has been instrumental in several things I have done to my bike so far. I am hooked and my bank account is growing smaller each day with all of the stuff I have been ordering.

I look forward to all of the fun that comes with owning the VTX and being a member of this group. I can't wait for the next tech session I can participate in. Interacting on here is one thing, but being able to meet people and learn from them in person is something else altogether.

Take care, and ride safe!

B

Welcome to the board!
Bookmark or save to your favorites folder, these websites, http://www.vtxoa.com/forums/forumdisplay.php?f=77
This is the NEW VTXOA Garage, a sister site to this message board and contains all your How-to/Tips/Tricks/Why’s and links to other helpful sites for your new VTX. http://tech.bareasschoppers.com/ A fellow VTX Riders site that has many write-ups on “How-To” do work on the VTX. Also, for you 1300 guys http://vtx1300tips.com/VTX1300TIPS.htm another fellow VTX Riders site.
There is also a helpful Search icon in the users Toolbar just under the VTXOwners Association banner
Click the “Search” drop down and select “Advanced Search”
Now, enter your keywords and select a single forum to search in
Select 1, and only 1 "Forum" to search in at a time, or at all.
For example, "Best airbox" I would only search in the "1800 Tech Board"
That's the basic way, you can limit further by using some of the other "Drop-Down" menu's like if you know the thread you are looking for is only a week or so old, etc....
The purpose of the "Search" is to offer a member the opportunity to research his/her question better. There is so much information from past threads that you may never see because that member is no longer here, or doesn't see your new post, or just won't respond to the same question. So use it to your advantage and enjoy the board! View this funny and informative film about posting and searching…
How To Use This Forum, Click Here
Take a few minutes to familiarize yourself with the forum. At the top of every board there are threads that are tagged as "Sticky" These threads are "Sticky" because they contain very important/valuable information about the VTX and everyone should read them.
The thread at the top of the 1800 tech board called, "Air, Fuel, Motors..." will answer most of the performance questions...

Live in the middle of nowhere. Biggest, close-by town is Lima.

Spent a few weeks, over many years, during the summertime at Lakota.
Very nice. I know most of that area fairly well. My MSF course is actually in Lima. My mom lives in Lima, so I figured I would visit her for the weekend. Wouldn't you know it, the one weekend I decide to go back home to spend with her and she will be out of town for a big ride. :D

Hope to see you at some meet and greet event in the future!
