I have both and from the seat of the pants the vtx has the edge off the line. From stop light to stop light it would be close. On twisty roads or longer stretch the 109 had the advantage. However, the low end issue may not exist once we start getting some pipes and kandn filters.

I met a VTX 1800 rider yesterday that had gotten an opportunity to ride a friends M109R ... he made it more than clear... that he liked his bike but he liked my bike a whole lot more....

Thats not uncommon beating the VTX! It was the Bad Boy though, before 9 came about. But it still is a nice ride, and will give you all the tickets you want to pay for:p

Pulled up beside a nice VTX yesterday on the way home from work. Spoke to the guy and told him he had a nice ride. He said yeah but, yours is faster... you go first.

I dont know about that, one of my mate I ride with has a far from stock 2006 VTX1800 & even with normal every day riding I beat him off the line every time, he has riden my 9 a few time now & can not get over the power of the 9 so he is trading his VTX in on a new 2009 LE in the next week or so.

I thought this thread looked familiar, it was created in 2006 and was one of the first threads on here. :D

We're still beating them just as bad though. :bigthumbsup::bigthumbsup:
