Hi There,

Stephen here from just north of Toronto, Canada. Love to ride. Got back into it about 4 years ago after a 25 year hiatus.

Began riding with a Honda CT 70 at 12 years old, then a Suzuki 100cc dirt bike, then a Suzuki GT 380 street bike (nice powerband on that two stroke!). Worked at a Kawi shop throughout high school and into college - so I got to ride lots of other bikes too.

Gave up riding for adulthood (fool!) and finally couldn't stand seeing everyone else have so much fun... so I bought a used 2002 VTX 1800 C in 2008, and last year picked up an N for cheap cheap (someone trailored 7 bikes over the border and sold them for way less than you can get them for here in Canada. Sad to see the 1800 discontinued as it is a really great bike for someone my size (6' 9", 280 lbs).

Anyone else out there own two VTX's?

Steve

Forgot I joined!

I guess I joined on 08 and forgot about it. Just discovered the site again. There seems to be lots of action going on here, so I'll now stop in regularly.

Welcome from Burlington ON.

Anyone else going to try to go to Port Dover for the January Friday the 13th next week???

I'm going to try and plan an ON VTX ride for the Spring, maybe May or early June so stay in touch with the board. There are a lot of us around but spread around a bit. I've got a buddy here in town with a new 1800 and I know of maybe a dozen more within a hour of here.

There are quite a few 2X riders here on the board, I'm sure a few will chip in. Smau, did you get your X off a guy north of Toronto??? I talked to him 2 years ago and he was selling X1800 for 9K I think from NY or MI back in the day when they were going for 11-12 up here.

Seems like there's a lot of guys named Steve riding VTX's in the GTA here. I'm from Brampton myself, just 30 mins NW of Toronto.
