    Originally purchased brand new and immediately modded w/ pro-r hypercharger, Cobra pipes. Hit the quaker steak and lube every week. Economy downturn and out of state move forced a sale a few years later. Found another VTX 1300, same year and color as my original and snatched it up right away. ...

  • 2004 Honda VTX 1300c
    By  (I am an Owner) on Sep 24, 2016

    I am 76 years old and bought this m/c new.I have 28,000 miles and have put it through it's paces quite often. The speedo is off by close to 10% so when it said 130 I knew I was only doing 118-120. They can go.

    Off came the stock pipes, seat and handlebars. Replaced with V&H long shots, mustang ...

    I average 48 mpq and if I crack the throttle a lot I'm down to 45 mpg.

    I use Dunlop tires and get about 8-8500 miles before replacement. I tried Michelin and got vibration when slowing down from 35 to 15 mph.

    It is a great all around m/c when you have just one.

    In my opinion it is the best.

It sounds better than my friends Harley. It is loaded with chrome, pewter in color, handles great on the road at high speeds. ...
