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.
Already sold the Elky, bought a Cadillac!

I'll be hanging around, made some good friends here that I'll be keeping in touch with! Who knows, might be on a vrod again some day because I still think they're great bikes.

No, keeping my rod, it makes me happy and I love the look of the bike. If anything I might trade it in next year for a muscle, or just customize this one. I think it was just he angle of the shot. It's a great ride and a sexy bike!

As Big James said...."Here and accounted for"
Alex got my numbers correct!!! Proud being a big man and even prouder to own and ride the HELL out of my DX. If you take a close look at Big James's pic of him....you'll see my fat ass just in front of him from a VRod rally we did at the dragon.

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.

worst part is you are Blocking that Excellent Challenger!!!
