She hasn't ridden it yet!
So Colorado, has the wife ridden it yet? Does she like it? Years ago, Hondas had the bad reputation of running down the battery even if they sat for just a few days. I'm sure that's corrected, however, but that's why I've never thought about buying one. Skittish over nothing, I suppose.
Within days of deciding to buy it, my wife was diagnosed with breast cancer.
We bought it any way, but she had lumpetomy surgery, and is on chemo now, then radiation. The chemo is making her feel out of whack (dizzy, headaches,etc), so she decided to let me break it in so it is ready next spring. It is a dirty job, but someones got to do it.
She had actually looked at a VTX1300 trike because of her fused neck and a developing bad knee, but kept telling the dealer that she really liked to lean into curves and wanted to continue to be a 'canyon carver'. So I sat her on the standard VTX1300S and the ergonmics were great for her, seat height being greatly improved for her 5' 5" height, weight about right, good wide handle bars. We ordered it out with bags, roll bars, windshield/lightbar, lower 'air wings', back rest, throttle lock, etc. It took about a month for the dealer to get the parts and get the bike set up. So it was a little late for her to start driving anyway.
So far I am really happy with the 1300. I am taking my time to break it in. I always take a full 1000 miles to break in my bikes before I consider them 'road ready'. So by next Spring hopefully both she and the bike will be ready to go on our nect adventure.
Ride safe & long,
