VTX 1300C
By Tim(Enthusiast), Sep. 17, 2008
This is a great bike for the long and short haul. Power is good in both street riding situations and for highway/byway travels. Riding possition is perfect for me (i'm 6 ft) and the seat though a little hard, was very comfortable to me and during a long weekend ride, 2 hours in the saddle was very... Read Full Review

VTX 1300 C - Low, long, and aggressive ...
By Gary(Owner), Nov. 14, 2008

By CBeck(Owner), Apr. 14, 2009
This bike truly deserves a top 10 mention IMO. It handles very well, has ample power, is PERFECTLY balanced, it sure doesn't feel like it's 641 pounds and looks good too. Certainly a bargain at under $10,000.00. I'd buy it all over again. Read Full Review
