Post Happy Holidays from Arizona

Just purchased the new 2013 VN1700 Vaquero last night! Love the Metallic Flat Spark Black and had to have it the moment I saw it. I stepped up from a 2004 Honda VTX1300c and WOW what a difference. I'm tickled to have a gas gauge now let alone cruise, radio, hardbags and a fairing.

Looking forward to your tips and advice on any mods and/or quirks with this fantastic bike.

I drooled over a bike that looked exactly like that one while I was purchasing my V2K.

Welcome aboard.

1985 Honda Nighthawk 650 (First Bike)
2004 Vulcan 1500 Classic (First Big Bike)
2007 Vulcan 1600 Meanstreak (Love Affair)
1999 Yamaha 1100 V-Star Custom (Right Price at the Time)
2008 V2K Classic (Favorite Vulcan)
2014 HD Ultra Limited (Bells and Whistles)
Who would have thought I would grow up to become "Spatially Educated" and play Connect-the-Dots for a living.

Nice ride, welcome.

It ain't about where you live; it's about how you live. So, ride to live, Bruh.

Me and the wife went looking for her first bike today and I got sidetracked talking to the dealer about getting a vaquero. Welcome to the forum.
