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.
added offset hwy pegs, added some chrome: radiator cover, fender tips
