Hi everybody. Bill Lage here. I live in a small town just west of Augusta Georgia. A long time shift worker who boils water for a living. Somebody's got to do it.
I have an '02 1800C for about 2 1/2 years now. Gone about as far as I can with it without spending big money. Don't even look at other bikes. I have what I want.

Ron Dob here. I work for Wachovia Bank in Winston Salem, NC. I live in Lexington, NC. I rode alot in the 70's on my 1971 Yamaha 650. Then had kids, etc. Sold the bike(s).

Now, kids are grown and gone as well as the wife (not grown, just GONE).

Bought my fast black VTX 1300S from HDL online in Dec of 2002. Took delivery in January 2003, Put Lindby Custom highway bars, National Cycle hard bags and the Honda windshield and lightbar on her before I rolled her out of the basement in March 2003 for my first ride. (Paperwork snafu).

Since then I have added: Honda Deluxe backrest, Ultimate 4 piece seats, Robert Wilson custom type 2 tank bib, National fender tips, spotlight visors, 4" Aeromach risers, Claton Root exhaust mod, Aerostich handlebar clock, Clear brake & signal light lenses, White Walls, K&N filter and over 20,000 miles.

Nice to see some activity here.

Lets see some pics. Here's mine:

I'm Stephen West and I just moved to Cape Coral Florida the last of June. I sold my remodeling business just before moving down. Haven't decided what to do just yet but I'll probably do some work on our new house before I look for something to do. I've got a black '03 1300S "Naomi" I've got a little over 20k and she has been just beautiful ever since I picked her up. I brought from HDL in N Miami and rode back to Atlanta where I just moved from. I've got the Ultimate set with backrest (my best investment) and Pillion, Roadhouse 2-1 pipes (love the sound and the little extra torque), phat risers, small National wind deflector shield and K-drive bags. I started riding at 14 (I'm just a little older now) and have loved it ever since. My wife says it's the only thing that I really like to do :nono: and I tell her it's amazing how she is always right :bleh:

Hey guys!

Hi everyone, I'm Tom. I came here after Ray showed me his new project in the works. I see it's up and open to the public and I thought I'd register here and help out where I can. I'm a skateboarder living in Ontario canada right now. I'll be popping in here as much as I can, hopefully learn a ton from you guys about bikes. My uncle's got his beautiful 2004 BMW R 1100 S parked in my garage at the moment actually, I love that bike. It's sooo nice ^_^
Anyways, I'll see you gusy around!

Welcome to the site. As for a photo, if you have the photos you can use tags. If the photo is on your PC at the bottom of the post use "mannage attachments" pick the photo from your hard drive and may sure you click the "upload" button.

If you use our photo gallery here, when you have the photo uploaded the image tag is supplied for you. [url]http://www.vtxcafe.com/gallery/[/url]

Hope that helps.

Hello fellow X-er's. Steve here. I got back into riding after a 30 year absence. As a 20 year veteran firefighter/paramedic, I hesitated every time I wanted a new bike because of all the bikers I had scraped up off the road over the years. When I saw my first VTX, I instantly fell in love with it and had to have one. (I also realized that most of the motorcycle fatalities that I have seen over the years fell into two categories... 1. Kids on crotch-rockets and 2. Harley guys without helmets.) We all take chances on our bikes in dealing with the crazy drivers, but I've discovered that the risk is well worth living life to the fullest. Here's wishing you all safe roads ahead and plenty of quality time aboard your X's. Later Brothers
