Honda VLX 600
submitted by Phil
My 1997 VLX 600 Deluxe is one of the best motorcycle
purchases I have ever made. In 2005, I paid $3400.00 for a Deluxe model
with 15K miles, and a Voyager trike kit...valued at $4500.00.
The VLX 600 does not have loads of power but you can also twist the
throttle without the bike crawling out from under you. On my Sabre 1100
I had to be very careful with the throttle!
With a good aftermarket seat replacement, the bike is much more
comfortable. The stock seat is a little numbing! I suggest a
or a Corbin if you
can afford it.
The bike is a boulevard cruiser with those great "Harley" looks, it
sounds good, and turns heads. It's not designed for touring, but for
reasonably long trips of 100-150 miles it is fine.
I'm 6 foot and 1/2 inch tall and the riding position is great for me. I
weigh about 220, and still have power to spare.
My VLX pulls the Voyager trike kit just fine. With the kit on, it is a
real "gawker." People look twice whenever I go by....and it is fun to
ride up the street to our favorite restaurant....it stops people in the
So if you are looking for a starter bike or a bike that you may fall in
love with and ride for years.....the VLX is a real contender.
I love my VLX and will be riding it for many years to come.
