Like I said previously I do not own a Fury and to be honest probably will never buy one. My main reason I frequent this board is to check out new products which potentially could be retro-fitted to my VTX-1300. For those of you who are/were on the VTXOA, VTXcafe, or Stumpwerx forums you know me as dumbcomputers:)

Another reason why I got one here early on was all the talk about putting a 240 tire on the stock 6.25" wheel which I personally think is the stupidest thing in the world. I'm glad Kurt is now on this board and has shown you guys the light:)

Yet another reason why I like this place is demographic. I am 36 years old and to be frank everyone on the VTX forums are much older. Not to say that there is something wrong with that, but I find less in common with them as we are in different stages of your lives.

For what it's worth here's my ride:

Nice bike!

I see why you are not getting a Fury. That is very similar to what I was going to do to a VTX until the Fury came out. Great looking bike!

thnx. I actually had it pretty nice for about the same price of a new Fury then I added air ride, Q5 intake, and swapped out my fiberglass fender for a 14-gauge steel deal.

I'm supprised to see you here, well maybe not. I saw your VTX on YouTube a couple times and I was extreamly impressed with what you did to your bike. Ever since I laid eyes on your bike, I have realized that the sky is the limit when it comes to customizing. The bike looks totally awsome, I would be just as happy with your VTX as I am with my Fury. Great job...

Thanks all for the nice compliments...I guess I'm still welcome then? haha...

I'm not done with the bike yet. I going to get the fork lowers from the new 1300 Sabre when it comes out and move my front brake to the left side. I'm also going to either do a left side rear brake system or a custom brake bracket/caliper to position it under the swingarm. Like any bike always got something....

Your VTX gives you impressive credentials :cool: !!! I am curious as to how it looks at normal ride height :confused:

You can find videos of this bike on YouTube. You can see what the bike looks like with the air-ride pumped up. Just type in Dumbcomputers on Youtube and his videos will pop up.

Love em'. I have quite-core baffles in them since i live in a very conservative neighborhood but they are still plenty loud for me. The only reason I would change them is to get something shorter to show off more of the back wheel if I convert to a left side brake.

Gosh, this reminds me of when I visited the Harley forums. Fury forums has been a wonderful place for all walks of life and all bikes as well. Hope it doesn't turn into stuff like this.
