Review Summary: 

Got my hands on an '04 VTX1300R and love it!  A while back I borrowed a V-Star1100 for a thousand mile ride; was about to buy it when I found the Honda.  More comfortable, better transmission (ratio) and just a "badder" ride overall, in my opinion.  Folks compliment it all the time.  Great for long hauls, but also nice just runnin' around town.  

Best Features: 
Power and comfort
Improvements: 
I've added driver & passenger backrests; makes for comfort on long rides.
Compares to: 
Yamaha V-Star (But the Honda's better)
