The VTX 1800S
|Well, I really missed the feeling of a V-twin between my legs when on the Valky. I really liked her, but something was missing, an attitude, a sound, a vibration. So, I sold her and got a 2004 Honda VTX 1800RS Spec build 1.|
|Just after her first bath.||No tach, but there are some nice aftermarket tachs to add should I want. Speedo glows red at night.|
|Another angle. I'm now leaning towards going with DG Hard Krome 2-n-1 Sideburners for pipes. They are loud and I love the way they look.||That's 1800 cc's there, or about 110 cubic inches. Each piston's diameter exceeds that of a piston from a 350 Chevy engine, and you can feel 'em.|
|Honda Neo Lightbar is new. It's got PIAA spots on it and I like it better than the traditional spots you see on lightbars. More light too.||Honda Neo Windshield, backrest and Leatherlyke bags complete the bike so far. I still plan on the Hard Krome Sideburners and an Ultimate seat. These 2 goodies will set me back somewhere around $1400 I figure.|
|A better look at the Leatherlykes. They are hard plastic and lockable.||Here's the long-awaited Sideburners and Ultimate Seats.|
|A black and white look at the Sideburners, I love the way the headers flow into the muffler.||My Eaglemate Motorcycle Trailer finally arrives!|
|Out of the box and ready to roll. Wiring the lights took some time to figure out what color wire led to what light, but was nothing too taxing.||The trailer connected to the bike after a test ride.|
|Another shot of the bike and trailer after a test ride.|
|My 1999 Valkyrie Interstate. This is just like the bike my daughter and I rented to ride to the Grand Canyon from Phoenix, a 500 mile round trip that this bike made feel easy. As I stated above, I really missed the feel of a V-twin. This bike just didn't have it being it's a flat 6. Nice bike and when I'm 70 maybe I'll be looking for the smooth ride of a Valkyrie again.|
