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

Half the price of a Harley
By James Cavanaugh(Owner), Oct. 8, 2008
I ride a 2006 Honda VTX 1300R. It's good, relaiable bike. Honda had to cut corners to keep the price down, i.e lots of plastic. The bike is quick off the line, but it won't go much past 100mph.

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

Honda VTX 1300R
By Brad(Owner), Jul. 19, 2009
The VTX 1300R is a great touring bike. I have added a Rifle 20" windshield and Honda Touring bags to make it a road worthy machine. I just finished a 2000 mile ride through Idaho and Montana. The bike runs smooth though all gears and handles twisties with ease. It has plenty of power and cruise... 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
