Well, I gotta say, I've been out riding my new toy around and its so much different from my old 80' Sturgis that its just not fair! I can't see how anyone who has ridden one isn't absolutley in love with these things!

Why is it that it seems that most "traditional" Harley guys reject this new bike? Because its power plant was desgined "out of country"? Is it the somewhat radical looks? Just curious...........

I have no clue why some 'harley guys' reject the v-rod, I think it's cool as ****. I think it does partly have to do with it's looks, a little more sporty than the traditional harley look. Who knows......who cares, just keep riding that thing and loving it. Anybody gives you ****, just flip 'em off and do a wheelie.

Take it easy man, and again....welcome to Bikerforums!

i ck out the cycle trader every so often and notice around here you can get an 05 vrod for around 13k!+ttl. i had an 03 in my garage for a month i was housing it for my girlfriends employer they were raffleing it off and while i had it i put around 300 miles on it. its a great bike awesome throttle response, easy to ride, the only thing i did'nt like @ the time was way i sat on it,it's kind of like riding a moped cause you sit upright.but the 05 rods have forward controls on the new models and w/some pullback bars might have a diff. feel.after i pay off my o3 nitetrain i'm seriously thinking either vrod or a bagger.
