Rokket. Honda has been my brand starting in 1969. 2003 VTX 1300S. Great bike But! Its hard on tires, wear one side and I have alway used 2 back tires to one front, not on the VTX. VTX has a shake problem in the stearing, usually just under the 45 mph mark. Some stealers say there is not problem. Trust me you do not want to have your hands off the bars when it starts. It corners like a stretch lemo. Its needs FI instead of carbs. Very cold natured. The engine is one of the loudest, ticking, knocking. And if you cant do the valve adjustment yourself, and I know how to turn a wrench, the stealers clean out your wallet to do it for you. No matter the windshield combo the wind buffet will shake you eyeballs out of your head. Jump on the VTXOA board and you can find some of the issues. Its one good looking Retro cruiser. Just wanted away from those problems. Waiting to see what the Nomad has, so far its like going from a Ford to a Lexus. I really dont mean to beat the Honda up, but this Nomad is fantastic. I even won best Nonamerican bike with the Honda at a local bike nite. It just had a few things I did not like.
what bueatiful looking bike metric shame about the issues, you would think honda would have sorted those things out , they do build quality machines though but obviously the ride and handling are more important !
Couple of pix of my old VTX, its a great bike, I did not even concider a new one, had to see if I could get away from the issues I didnt like and the Nomad is, at this time, knocking it out of the park. I love this machine. The Nomad is a little tickie and clicky but at least I know that those engine sounds are supposed to be there and I will break it in by the book. I have had a couple of techs at Honda shops listen to the X and say, "yeah thats about right". I have a problem with "about".
It looks to me that you guys spend more time in the saddle and less time on here beatin the HD's too. Sick to death hearing about a **** harley. Test road on this spring, hated it! Now move on, I did. LOL
