I just got my vtx1800r last weekend and i love it. I live in Anaheim, ca.i look forward to riding this beast everyday. I named her Helena after my wife that i lost in January due to a series of strokes. My previous rides have been 1995 and 1996 intruder 1400 and a 2008 fat bob. Anyhow just thought id say hi and introduce myself i know how much these forums can really save your arse in a bind.
