My real name is Scott. I've lived in the Boise Idaho area nearly all my 48-yrs. Been wanting a bike since I sold my Shadown VT1100 10-yrs ago. Saw several VTX bikes in the local Craigslist, and just had to have one. Picked up a used 2005 VTX-1300R this past weekend. Have been surfing the WWW for VTX related information and found this forum. This is awesome !!!

Some of my friends also ride the VTX's. I'll be sure to share this info with them.

Howdy from muggy central South Carolina!

While my father was stationed at Mountain Home AFB I attended two years of Junior High and the last half of my senior year at MHSHS. Attended two years at Idaho State University in Pocatello on a scholarship (came within a hair of going to Boise State College, but they were @$$#0!e$ when I visited). Have hiked alone all over the state, just never ridden there.

Glad you got the X, you'll find pretty much anything you need to know about your ride or what to do with it here. Look through the archives first if you have a question or issue, most likely the subject has been touched upon at some time.

Number one rule here is if you make modifications (mods) to your bike, describe a repair or problem of visit someplace cool or different you MUST post photos or everyone will jump you like deer flies in August! Not in a "bad" way, but just to remind you it's easier to see what going on than try to figure it out from words alone.

Post photos of your bike, your rides, where you live and even you, if you want.

So Welcome aboard and fasten your seatbelt. :choppersm

Thanks for the warm welcome. Like they say on another forum I'm on.... If there are no pictures, it didn't happen.

Unfortunately I didn't get my ride in time for a big rally in Baker City Oregon this past weekend. Big ride through Hells Canyon. Luckily people from work are planning a ride up through Lowman into Stanley. We'll then cross through the sawtooths into Sun Valey/Haley, before heading back to Boise. Plan is to make this ride on 7/31, so the weather should be nice and the snow melted out of the higher elevations.
I'll try to post a trip report after.

Thanks again...

Welcome to the Cafe from North Idaho. Lived in Idaho since 1963 except for 8 years in the '80's.

Love that area just north of you around Lowman. Drove through in car several years ago and would love to ride the bike on it to Stanley and on up to Salmon. It is a beautiful state.

here's a shout out from Calgary Alberta - may you ride with the wind at your back, the sun overhead and the road endlessly winding.
