Other Bikes Along the Way...
I put allot of
money into this VTX to get everything just the way I wanted it. It had
a massive amount of torque and speed to boot. 2 windshields heights or
none. Saddle bags that were quickly removable. Hyper charger, Vance &
Hines Big Shots Exhaust, Power Commander III. After all the bolt on
upgrades it was professionally dyno tuned through the RPM range. After
riding for 300 miles I found this type of bike to be too noisy and too
windy. Although I do miss this bike, it's why I chose the ST1300.
I have to say, This was one of my favorite
machines! This CBR1000R was a very comfortable sport bike to ride. In fact,
the riding position was more like the ST1300. Note
the handle bars are positioned well above the seat. Sport bikes now days
tend to position your upper body in an aggressive lean into the bars.
I wish I new about Rich's seats back then because the seat on this
bike was the only draw back. Come to think about it, the luggage would
have been a nice bonus.
