Hey all! I'm a proud new owner of a 2006 Honda VTX 1300R.
With Vance & Hines pipes and a Mustang Seat.
I suffer from a neuromuscular disease called Charcot Marie Tooth
disease and I was hit head-on by a drunk driver on April 13, 2015.
Due to my health and being disabled I cannot ride 2 wheels.
I have to add a trike kit to my new bike. I should be riding her
in about 3 weeks! I can't wait to be back in the WIND!

Riding is my life. And living in Florida I get to ride year round
comfortably! There's only two other things I need yet for my
new bike and that's a windshield and saddlebags.

Glad I found this forum and hope to make some new friends and
learn more about my new bike here.

Welcome to the board!
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...
http://www.vtxoa.com/forums/showthread.php?t=21749


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://www.bareasschoppers.com/ A fellow VTX Riders site that has many write-ups on “How-To” do work on the VTX.

There is also a helpful Search icon in the users Toolbar just under the VTXOwners Association banner

Click the “Advanced Search” button

Now, click "Search Single Content Type" and add you keyword to search
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…

Welcome from the Northeast Kingdom of Vermont. Don't worry ~ the trike kit isn't going to slow that monster down a bit!! The windscreen is a definite maybe, but you can forget the saddlebags on a trike ~ you'll have a trunk. Enjoy and we're waiting for pics when you get it back home.

Welcome
So glad you stuck with riding. Wishing you many happy trails on your new trike. Lately its been too hot for me to ride but I get a few miles in early morning and evening when the heat index is lower. Florida is a great place. This is a great site. Enjoy.

A fellow Floridian
