Hello, I'm a long time "lurker", but made my first posts today!!! I posted a bunch of ads in the classifieds today. My wife and I just traded our VTX's away this week. I had a VTX1800F, and my wife had a VTX1300C. We both enjoyed our bikes, but are just going a different direction now. I pulled all the aftermarket goodies off both bikes, to sell off separately (aftermarket goodies don't add much value at trade-in time). We did "okay" on trade-in. We could have done better in the spring, and sold them outright. I chose "sanity" over money, and happy to have moved on. Please take a look at our VTX garage sale in the classifieds for the 1800 & 1300 sections.
