I was shopping for a new Harley & test drove the VTX. I remember saying "Oh my God, I gotta have this thing! 26K miles later, no regrets.
Took a 2.5K mile trip with no issues, except for that beautiful but evil stock seat. Replaced with a Mustang before next long trip. Worth every penny, shoulda done it sooner.
Handling is OK for a big bike, but I'll change the front fork springs when I tackle the fork seals.
After adding a Memphis Fats shield & lowers & bags, this is a great touring machine. Extremely comfy with the add-ons. Also added floorboards for the wife.
Did I mention it runs like Secretariat on NOS?
