Very stylish first choice Chris. And taking it easy is clearly a good idea. A nice thing about a spoke retro is just how cool they look puttering along... with plenty of power lurking to scoot when you feel like it.ChrisAllison said:My first bike is also my current bike. 2002 VTX Retro Spoke 1800. I've put about 500 miles on it so far. Still getting the hang of it and taking it slow.
