my son in law picked up an '06 VTX13R yesterday. It's a bit of a fixer upper, but it was priced right. I would post a pic, but apparently I'm not as smart as my phone.

I bought it used. PO had butchered the electrics. I had a dealership service dept fix it, but it didn't stay fixed. I prefer to not have to hitch hike to get home.

I would buy another one.

I always admired these things back when they were new. When I finally got to see one in meat space, I was shocked at how small it was. Too small for me, and I'm only 5'9".
