Default not to hijack the thread or anything..

But umm... Why the heck hasn't MO tested a VTX 1300???



I spent yesterday riding around on VTX 1800, and then went back and compared notes with your reviews. We didn't agree on a whole lot, except the brakes. Holy cow does that bike need more brakes. Those things are damned near useless!



The forward controls, and the bars were way to far away for me...



Still... I had a blast. I'm just wishing y'all had a review of the 1300 so I could compare them.

Default Re: Sonoma County Ride

I was thinking of getting rid of my tired old Trophy. I kept waivering to and fro; ST1300, FJR1300, Road King. Kept test riding them until even the janitor at the local HD dealer knew me by name. It was one of these "Lets go ride around on an RK by E Bass" that got me to say; What the heck. Lets just go buy the Road King. I can still buy the FJR next year to park next to it. And, maybe it'll be arrest-me red. Good work man!

Well no. The brakes on the 1800 suck. Are they better on the 1300? What about the riding position?



i read that the 1300 was the far superior bike, and frankly, I'd like to know if that's BS or not.

The brakes are better on the 1300 because it's not as fast.

Default exBass n Mate

What is lacking is the female touring mate that needs to be on her own full-size ride accompanying exBass.
