I was just looking at my local (SF Bay Area) Craigslist. VTX 1300's are selling for ~$6K or less with ~3K miles. I paid MSRP out the door in 2004, and looking back, I have no regrets. I just changed the oil and filter tonight, and the bike responded gratefully (full synthetic Castrol, Bosch filter.) What a ride. What a GREAT BIKE.
