    Hey Guys,
    Its been a while.

    As some of you who know, I sold the Kan-o-tuna last year and was not sure if I was going to get a new bike or not this year but the wife and I decided that we missed riding to much. So yesterday I went out and got a new VTX1800. I will get some pictures tonight after I pick it up and post them.

    Thats not the dark side, buying a Harley is going to the dark side.

    Thats a cool bike.

    I've always liked the VTX - I actually looked at one. Once they changed the motor mounts and made it so it didn't vibrate eough to turn your kidneys into raisens. Very clean lookin bike - I like the color your chose too

    That's a sweet bike.

    Why anyone would spend the money on a Harley over something like that, I still can't figure out.

    Kind of reminds me of the Yamaha Warrior, which I saw at a dealer recently. Pretty cool looking bike too.

    I took it for a ride tonight and I was ginding the pegs left and right. This thing does not take much to grind the pegs

    Very nice ride!

    Like the others said that is not the dark side at all!!
    I was looking at a few VTX1800 just last week.
    Your going to want a wind screen! Get a nice shorty!

    My mind is going in 500 different directions as to what kind of bike I am getting next.

    So many choises. I just can't decide......

    Unless you hate your social life, sleep, money, peace, quiet, riding, strippers, booze and everything else fun, that right there, my friend, is a BAD IDEA
