Looking at 2001 volusia

Hi all,

I live in Florida and am looking at a volusia to keep up north to ride during the summers. I am very tall 6'6" and the volusia is a big and long bike and I seem to fit on it well. It will be in storage for 10-11 months out of the year because I have a bike down south. I don't need to ride 80 - 90 mph all the time but sometimes its fun. 60 to 65 mph is cool. The volusia I am looking at has 35,000 miles on it and looks like it has been taken care of. I probably won't put over 1500 miles on it during my time up north so if I keep it maintained and stored properly it should last for a long time because vtwins seem to be very dependable. Asking price is $2500. Is it worth it?

I just got one this summer and I love it . I put 6,000 miles on it this summer. This is also my first bike . I have no problems and going 60-65 its a great bike . I dont think you will have any problems from what I have read here and the price seem fair. Good Luck

Price works for me. I love my '03

I know you believe that you understand what you think I said but I'm sure you realize that what you heard is not what I meant.

'05 Honda VTX 1300R Champion trike Kit. Mustang Seats and Backrests, Kuryakyn ISO grips, pegs, floorboards, shifter and brake peddles, Cup Holder. Universal passenger arm rests, Wolo horn, Vista Cruise, Shark 600 watt stereo, ShowChrome Risers, lots of chrome.

seems pretty good. Just make sure that you do a good job on "winterizing" it or you'll have a lot of problems the next year.

I can head East or West, it doesn't matter as long as it's on 2 wheels.

The biggest problem with the 01's was backfiring due to the pair valve. This is not a problem that one can hide. The bike will either backfire when switching gears or it won't. The problem is easily fixed and not all 01's had this issue. I think this is a great bike for what you want.

It doesn't matter what you ride as long as you don't run out of gas.
