Hello from Redlands,CA. I am almost as new to riding as I am to this forum.

I bought my first bike yesterday, 2009 VTX1300R. I got a great deal and I am thrilled to jump in to this world! I have been learning on a 1995 KLX250 for the last couple months to get the hang of the controls. Growing up, my dad always had a Harley. I fondly remember jumping on the back at 7yo and going on rides with him. I have dreamed of having my own bike ever since. Jumping on this beast has already been a learning curve, but an exciting one. I really look forward to the knowledge and experience I can glean from you more experienced VTX riders out there.

Welcome from Indianapolis,

Best to schedule a basic riding course when you can. You really learn a lot. Even people riding for years have learned from taking a class.

Welcome to the party!

Basic riding course is a must! I also recommend going on YouTube and watching a buttload of video on riding and proper techniques. I can't tell you how much that helped me. And then practice, practice, practice!!! Especially the slow speed stuff. That stuff comes in handy at the oddest times lol

Welcome from east Texas. Like the others have said, rider safety course and low speed practice are a must with these heavy bikes. Ride safe and enjoy
