    Hello from Illinois!

    Hello y'all and thanks for the add!  I just picked up a new-to-me 2016 VFR1200X with about 23,000 miles.  I plan to wire it for my Garmin Montana (looking for recommendations - I saw one thing that was recommended was to pick up this:  08A00-MGH-640, so I have that on the way). Next up I'm going to have the suspension looked at and I'll consider an upgrade.

    Let me know your thoughts, I'm hoping this is the beginning of a beautiful relationship. :c D

    Hey AY.  From Chicago originally.  Go back about 4 times a year.  It's a great bike.  Just curious if you bought that manual bike from Woodstock HD. 

    In my opinion, the seat and suspension are all that it really needs...badly!  But others say it's just fine.  Never felt unsafe on the bike due to suspension, but it beats you up a little bit and feels unsettled even though it was not.

    Hello AY! I’m in the Twin Cities and just picked up my NOS 17 1200X Hope your Honda is all you want it to be!  I’m not sure if you know it but Twisted Throttle is a great source for parts!
