There are very few bad motorcycles out there these days. My advice is to buy the one that inspires the most lust by just looking at it.

Have you sat on both? Personally, I'm a Yamaha guy in this case, but there are tons of aftermarket parts for the VTX. Maybe it comes down to what the dealer is willing to do for you so they don't have to give another birthday party for the bikes. I'd ask for a free service contract or gap coverage and tire and wheel protection or your break-in service and the first major. Workem' over and see what you can get.

Pick the bike that looks best to you and consider which dealer you like best also.
