Hello everyone.I should start by saying I'm 77 years old and have been riding since 16, Owned many bikes including Triumph, Honda and Harley. So....I'm used to vibration. so....I'm in Mesa and bought an 06 VTX1300 just last week from RideNow Peoria. I have never ridden this type of bike before. Here's my problem..After reading several reviews I was convinced that this bike would have a "mild" kind of vibration because of the V Twin.
I didn't have a chance to test ride the bike 'cause it wasn't ready to ride until I was ready to buy. Anyway.....on the way home at 65-75 mph this bike, (to me), feels like the engine is trying to exit the frame. If I had a tach I could tell you the RPM when it happens.....in ANY gear at ANY speed...at this particular RPM range the vibration is horrible! Pull in the clutch....totally goes away....so....it's dependent on the RPM.
I'm asking if SOMEone in the PHX area would ride my bike around the block or whatever to either agree with me that it's a bad problem vibration....or....."it's just normal V twin vibes".
