    Question Honda VTX 1800R

    Well I found my birthday present recently, even though the birthday was in March, got me a 2002 VTX 1800R. Quite a step up from the old GoldWing
    1980 GL1100 That it will replace. Really much more bike than I need but at
    reaching the age of 65 I feel that I can indulge myself a bit.
    Only problem I have noticed with it is the electronic speedo reset button
    seem's not to work as it should, I can press the button to switch from milage to trip and it will not switch but later on it will make a switch and then not switch back when I try to change it again,maybe in the same ride or maybe the next day or two days later. Has anybody ever had a similar problem with
    their bikes with this type of system? I am used to resetting the trip when ever I fill up with gas, so this is important to me. I had a Yamaha Virago, that I picked up a cheap little counter that I used for a trip counter and reset the numbers every fill up to keep track of milage.

    sounds like a momentary switch, but intermittent. I'd report it to the deal asap.

    Nice ride, enjoy it.
