2003 Honda VTX1800C VTX1800C Review: If you haven't tried one ........ You have to !

Motorcycle: 
Year: 
2003
Color: 
Blue
Review Summary: 

Have ridden a lot of bikes over the years and have nevery found anything quite comparable.  Great cruising whether on back roads or moving out on the highway.  The only way to know is to ride one ... the jump up and get go from the throttle will make you a believer.  Why Honda has not come back with these or an upgraded model is beyond me.  I believe they are making a mistake.  I know they have the newer "street model wing" now but the VTX had so many variations to fit so many riders needs.  I still have my 03 and have contemplated going with something different but, every time I consider I just decide to stay with it.   I think if I ever do get another bike I will try to hang onto the VTX if I can .... just don't want to let go !   Laughing

Best Features: 
The power and ease to ride such a bigger machine. Well balanced power !
Improvements: 
Have made too many to mention ...... upgrades that is. Seating as with most bikes is the most identifiable need for improvement for comfort sake.
Compares to: 
Not much.

Thanks for the review, I live in the upper Midwest and have had a vtx 1800f sitting in the garage for about a month now. Only got to ride up and down the street once, couldn't resist, hit the throttle just a little and it literally made my eyeballs flap in the wind.. I can.not.wait.to.get.out.there. And reading reviews like yours makes the itch even more intense! Lol
