Almost traded it for a new Switchback! Still might do it if I can get the deal I want.

Rode the Switchback about 20 miles yesterday and was surprised that it runs better than I expected. Engine wise it felt great till the rev limiter shuts it down when it started feeling real good. In first gear the limiter comes on so soon it's freaky! Once I got used to that in all the other gears it pulls real good and didn't feel like a slug the way I expected it would, nothing like a Vrod performance wise though. It also rode a little rougher than I expected, but if I added a tallboy seat to it it would be very comfortable for me and that's what I'm after now. The one I tried was red with chrome wheels and it looked very good. The chrome wheels are running the price up beyond where I want it and the dealer is not "dealing" at all. I'm going to make them one more offer. If that doesn't work then it's off to see if another dealer will work with me.

I read this review of the Switchback.
http://www.aimag.com/wordpress/2011/...rcycle-review/
Seems pretty good for the guy who might only do a weekend Rally here and there and also uses it for the commute to work. Superb gas mileage... Seems high on the price as you know you will have to do some mods. ANY V-ROD should trade straight across and they should upgrade the pipes and tuner on the Switchback.

You can't do that or you will no longer be the world's biggest V-rodder.

Even more reason I wish the MOCO would be smart enough to build a bike like the switchback with a revo based engine!
