So the chopper that I ordered finally arrived today (above is the model, not the color) and I went down to look at it. It is hideous. Not because of its design but because they went ahead and painted it blood read and NOT the Candy Red I have stipulated. This is at least now my out if I don’t like any of the other colors so I am back in serious decision mode.
While I love the chopper and it really is a good deal, it certainly is NOT what I want (above is the model and color that started my quest for a chopper). So, to console myself, I went down to my dealership (Honda, not the choppers) to look at the colors I might be happy with. Low and behold, they have VTX1800’s on sale at great prices for a 07. So, I started thinking, I have three options, the VTX that has fuel injection and a host of other nice stuff plus they are enticing the deal with a three year warranty but I don’t like the colors that much either, go with the Swift chopper and have it repainted or continue with my mod plans on the VT1100 that I truly love in every respect. Now I assume that most folks here will give me very good reasons to either stick with the Spirit or go for the VTX.
So, I open it up to you folks to help me make this decision. I ask “ what would you do?”
