actually it almost feels like a HD, semi load exhaust, the rattle, shaky mirrors, fucked up clunking trans, almost no suspension, ass jarring suspension on small bumps, fag ass leather saddles, feel like i am in stir-ups giving birth in the seating position, no back rest.

all around i think it almost feels like a harley.

but stop bashing my ride.

I think it's a good lookin bike Ken. I personally like the 1800, but to each their own. But I'm a little cofused on why. Don't like takin the short bus around town or what?

Everything I've read says that the 1300 is a superior bike to the 1800. I've always liked the VTX but I HATE sissybars and Speedos that are in the gas tank. Aside from that, she looks badass, no Star Warrior in Midnight Onyx, but badass nonetheless.

loaner bike? can i ride it? :P i was actually thinking of getting a VTX, but then i realized i was 23 and 160 lbs. the 636 fit me a little better. what don't you like about it? just the style of bike, or the VTX itself? i would lose the windshield, bags, and sissy bar though.
