It seems that many riders here based which VTX they ride because of their height. Some say they are to short to ride the big 1800 while some who state they are even shorter can indeed ride the 1800. I can totally understand this because I traded in my Shadow 1100 in for the 1800 because I "sat to low" on Shadow and wanted a bigger bike. I'm 6' 4".

Not that it matters one way or another but thought I'd toss out a poll to take an average height. Just for fun is all.

I'm 5'4" and shrinking. I am probably one of the shortest 1300 X riders given the 25" inseam I have. You can ask those that have met me and they will tell you that i am probably the shortest. "when I was born I figure the pulled on the wrong end of me lol"

5' 9". Bought the 1300 without even looking at the 1800 strickly because they had brand new fresh from the crate 06 1300s still in 08. This is my first bike and I love it. Really wanted to start out on like a 750 or so. Salesman said well I could have for the 1300 for way less. Sure glad I did. It is a great bike.

As for the rest of the pole, I no longer fit in the over 300# category. I have just lost 50# and am aiming for another 50 or so. Too much riding to be done with all the complications brought on by that weight, at least for my short self. :bleh:

Still riding in Southeast Texas. Low tonight 31 then into 60s Thursday.
