DEJA VU, my name is mike also. just completed the required local initial training (ireland).
I am getting delivery of a 07 VTX1300C this coming week, no joking.
last bike i drove was a Katana 250 back in '95.
like you i felt safer getting the bike delivered first and get used to her from home initially
drove it in the shop yard and found the take off smooth and controllable.
The fear i feel is a natural response and shows a healthy respect for the bike size.
Looking forward to the miles ahead. Hope your experiences will all be positive also.

WELCOME ABOARD, and...



Other members do like to know they are welcoming a real person so thanks
for letting us know a little about yourself.:smile: Normally just a few more
posts(count of 3) and the rest of the site will open to you. This is the sites
spambot control. Unfortunately it is needed today. But you have to make 15
posts before you can post pictures. Right or wrong it's considered a privilege
to be able to post pictures. Unless you use Tapatalk which somehow
gets around that restriction.

We are friendly site here. Well, most of us:grin:

EDIT:post moved.

Hello Mike (Mícheál for Unkle Krusty)

I am getting delivery of a 07 VTX1300C this coming week, no joking.
A rather hefty machine, but it should be manageable with a bit of practice.

Looking forward to the miles ahead. Hope your experiences will all be positive also.
Best of luck with it.

Assuming you did IBT (mandatory training) for category A, I don't think you can use the
VTX for the RSA practical test in this category. Like a lot of the big cruisers. it is
too powerful for A2 and not powerful enough (50kW) for category A. Keep this
in mind when you are planning for the test.

Regards from Cork City.
