Do I look to big for my VROD? I'm 6 feet tall, 280pounds and it feels great in reach, the seat and leg length, then my daughter takes a pic of me and wow, my VROD looks small! Its a long lean bike, fast as hell and I love to ride it. Just posting the pic because the way she took the pic makes me look like a giant, even with my wifes and my Challengers in the background.

Reason: so everyone can see the pic
Your link isn't working for me. But what I will say is during one dyno day I talked to a big guy that had a Boulevard M109 and he said he wanted a Vrod but it was too small for him and the M109 fit him a little better. After looking at it it made sense to me. The tank was wider and just different than the Vrod's longer/slender look.

And soon to pass my "Worlds biggest Vrodder" title on to a suitable recipient, maybe R34P3R !
Even though I have enjoyed my V it just doesn't suit me for real long rides or 2 up, something I hope to be doing more of. I found the Tallboy seat to be my best fit and I did a 500 mile day with it recently but 2 up on it only works with my very short, petite lady friend and I hate to leave the big girls out.! I'd love to keep it for the fun I do have with it but I can't justify paying taxes and insurance on 2 bikes.
I have come to terms with a dealer for a shiny new 2012, red, FLD(Switchback). I plan to pull the trigger Friday.
PS, don't worry about how you look on it, enjoy it! And if someone with a little man complex says something about it, pinch his head off!

A Dyna James? Really, next you will be trading the Ellky for Honda Ridgeline.
Kidding, I like the Dyna line up best out of all the HDs, bought the R for the comfort. Enjoy, post some pics and make sure you still stop in here from time to time.
