yeah, but there's gotta be something less beige than a honda vtx...victory? kawi? suzuki? triumph? guzzi? bmw? anything? maybe it's just me, but honda's line has been putting me to sleep for a few years now.

Then its time for it to go and move on, if its two wheels excellent, if its two wheels and two up with your best friend even better!

I have one !!! '08 VTX1800 T3 . Reliable like a steel hammer and all that torque !!! I think VTX1800 engine is one of the best if not the best twin cruiser motors ever built.

In the past week I have jumped from just keeping my ex500, to wanting an fz1, then xr1200x, then Iron 883, then Honda NC700x, then back to xr1200x.

Thankfully, I do not have the extra money to put on a bike, and I refuse to finance one. Guess I'll keep the wee Ninja for a while longer

Today it's just a cup of coffee and back home, so this would fit perfectly:

I like the look of those as well; except I wouldn't want the hard bags on it (i have the connie for luggage hauling). I'd want this;

A guy I know got one of these a couple of months back. Great looking bike in person. I am not a fan of the high bars, but other than that I think it is a keeper! I really like the pain job on it.

if the accessory saddlebags for for that one locked, i wouldn't be looking at the hard ball.

the high bars are great ergonomically for us tall people

did i mention the high ball goes like a damned bullet train and will give a little throttle wheelie in first gear? (i didn't mean to do it. i'm being serious. i just nailed the throttle, and SURPRISE! it came back down on it's own shortly after, but holy shit this bike FLIES!)
