From a Wing To A VTX 1300R
By Chris(Owner), Apr. 20, 2009
I've been a Wing rider since 1982. I heard alot of good things about the VTX, and was ready for a newer bike.



So I went to C&C Sports in Brighton, Michigan. C&C takes good care of their customers. I found a very nice pre-owned VTX 1300R with only 645 miles on it, its a 2006. I said this b... Read Full Review

Best Bike
By Uncle Dave(Owner), Dec. 19, 2008
I have 35K miles without a problem. I ride in all conditions and often carry my son. Ride is smooth and I can ride for hours without getting tired. Sounds great with Cobra pipes. KN air filter and new jets helped power and bike looks good dressed. Read Full Review

The bike runs smooth though all gears and handles twisties with ease. It has plenty of power and cruise... Read Full Review

It's a great cruiser (after buying a Mustang seat). I have taken through several states. It's a good, re... Read Full Review

2006 Honda VTX1300R Silver with extras
By Earl(Owner), Sep. 1, 2012
I've been riding my Honda 1300VTX R for almost 5 years now and I am still enjoying a trouble-free ride and great performance and handling. My wife is still happy to sit on the passenger seat and we are getting 44-46 mpg by myself and almost 40 mpg with two up and fully loaded. We have taken 8 hour... Read Full Review
