Candy Apple Red Honda VTX 1300
Greetings from Central Mississippi! I have a candy apple red Honda VTX 1300 Retro that is my baby! I have custom made black ostrich seat, tank bib, saddle bags, driver and passenger back rests. We've installed red underglow lights throughout the engine compartment that really highlights the chrome on my bike. I've got super loud Vance & Hines pipes on it. I have a J&M2003 cb radio installed so my hubby and I can talk while cruising down the road. My daughter made a cute biker bear for me named McKenzie - she's all dressed up in black leathers and has ridden about 20,000 miles with me!
I've ridden for about 10 years. Started out with a Shadow 250, moved up to a 500 Yamaha, then a tricked out Shadow 750. I've had the VTX almost 3 years and have put nearly 25,000 miles on it. I ride year round. I've ridden my bike on several vacations - the first one was 1500 miles to the Ozarks. The most recent vacation we took on our bikes was to the Smoky Mountains - ended up about 1700 miles. I love me some curves! We rode the Dragon 3 times - twice in one day!
I am looking forward to going to Colorado this summer for Riding the Rockies in July. Ride safe ya'll!
