  • Lots of fun with a little dough
    By  (I am an Owner) on Jan 06, 2011

    my primary bike is a yamaha roadstar,

    it is heaven on concrete,but in traffic on hot summer days, it's a bit out of it's element.i bought a 1300 vtx, to get me through the dog days,and it is a perfect soloution.liquid cooled and fast, and the pullback bars split the lanes better than beach ...

  • Awesome deal

    I bought my Honda VTX 1300s 2 years ago and love every aspect of it. The ride is awesome , the looks are standoutish and the price was actually fair for a left over but brand new bike.

    I have taken this bike on trips, cruises and just down town for a quick cool down after mowing.

    ...

    If I had one gripe it would be the low budget plastic chrome used in several areas but then again my wallet was much brighter after leaving the dealer.
