    welp, i put the kabash on the VTX 1800... the controls are too far forward, kind of an uncomfortable stretch to put my foot under the shifter... and the way they are mounted it looks like it would be alot of trouble to have something custom made to bring them back 2-3 inches... so i sit, dejected as of now, but am going to the HD dealers in Tulsa tomorrow... wish me luck

    Every normal man must be tempted at times, to spit on his hands, hoist the black flag, and begin slitting throats.
    I often wonder if the voices in my head ever get frustrated because I'm just too damn lazy to climb that clock tower.

    Man that's a cheap price considering a new Dell or Alienware desktop system or lappy would put you out over $6000 when the options are maxed out.

    BTW, I like the look.

    27" inseam kept you from taking it home...???
    Dude, just do what Prey and SCat does...use duct tape and tape the fellas up tight...hell, using this method, SCat even looks good in a G-string, well, as good as he could look... Not to mention that he gained a full 3/4" in inseam length!!!! Prey almost gained a full 1/2"!!!!!

    I believe the answer is obvious... Get to the HD dealer in Tulsa!

    Wow..that's not bad looking...looks like what started out as the Virago decades ago (If memory serves me right..Yamaha's first V-twin Harley imitation) has evolved quite a bit.

    At first that exhaust system made me cringe...thinking "How could they stick an annoying ricer exhaust on a nice V-twin?". Makes me cringe at the thought of going for that annoyingly loud street racer sound from after market pipes. But in reading the details..they state it keeps a "nice throaty V-twin sound". So maybe there is hope.

    Sure looks nice though..kinda like the all black look.
