A buddy just bought a '99 TC FLHT with a sidecar for $10K! I never thought I'd see that!

IT'S TOO LATE! He's already Infected with the "T-Virus"............

(T = Torque)

Oh, and VTX 1800 is somewhat universally-derided as what's known in layman's terms as "A Dog".

I've been told the 1300 "feels" more-responsive. Not having ridden either - this is all hearsay, of course.

Nah, I'm right and anyone that disagrees with me is a narrow-minded commie liberal/ditto-head neocon. Possibly even racist! How does that make them racist? I have no idea, but if I say it enough times it will be taken as a fact.

(Good lord, does this mean I have a secret lust for Rosie O'Donnell?!)
You're mistaken. I don't hate them. I just think they are ugly. In fact I miss the 1200C. They are always good for a belly laugh.

There are only a few really gorgeous bikes and those are all built by the Brits and the Eyeties.

Just go buy the Rocket and be done with it. Remember, Kool Kids Ride TRiumphs, you can't go wrong with a Rocket....
