    Tank and Roo go riding

    Well, we did it. We bought the 2003 Honda VTX 1800. We took a quick run up 287 to dine at On the Border for our first ride.

    It has some cool after-market stuff: Ultimate X seats and LeatherLyke saddlebags.

    Lots of Coloradans here, any favorite day/ weekend rides?









    PS: Roo wants me to add that these pictures were taken in front of our garage, which is off the alley behind the house. The front of the house looks much nicer! :p

    Cool ride Robb - very nice and yeah - the ''goodies'' are a nice extra.

    I was after that basic color on mine but at the time it was not available so I went with the silver.

    I can't see your grin of course but - I'll bet it's permanent!

    Nice looking bike... I am so tempted to buy a street bike, but I'm skeered of the blue hairs, the cell phone gum flapping soccer moms, and the moronic 16-20 year olds with 2 ton bullets.

    I dodge trees on the dirt trails well enough, but even they jump out in front of me from time to time.

    Nice bike. That is a sweet 1800!

    I notice that it still has the stock grips, you will probably be swapping those out in a few thousand miles. I know I am ready to can the ones on my 1300.

    I'd love to have another bike, but I have the same concerns as you do. That is a nice looking ride!
