Mmm, after reading the review and some of the comments here, I might have to re-think my Honda options. I was leaning towards a Sabre, instead of a Fury, but maybe I should wait for the Stateline review.

Whatta bunch of haters.

I like it, or at least the way it looks.

I haven't ridden any of the Honda VTX's, but I have ridden a Harley Dyna, and was on the whole not impressed. It was nicely finished, but that legendary Harley big twin is a big pile.

I'd rather have the liquid-cooled, shaft-driven Sabre.

KING VITAMIN!! Where you been Dude!?!? I haven't seen you since that big ascorbic acid "thing" out in Boulder! Figured you'd get an early release, but hell, not this soon!

Got any niacin?

I love my XX. I love my Element. This bike is a big *yawn*. I'd rather have one of the old Honda Sabres. And these VTX bikes are way too expensive.

Seruzawa's Exploding Motor Experience:

Honda = 2
Yamaha = 2
Ducati = 1
Kawasaki = 1
Suzuki = 0
Harley = 0
BSA = 0
Norton = 0
Triumph = 0

Yep, at least one of those manufacturers builds "piles".

What kind of oil were you using?

I hear synthetic is too slippery.

Triumph has done the 'seamed tank' too. There must be something to making tanks that I don't know about.
