as cowpie said.. ride 'em both to decide. I decided I liked the feel of the NightRod D better with the 5 gal tank and mid controls...

I love it when pedestrians in a crosswalk stop to say how much they like my bike. There are many other machines that will outperform my R. Its a Goldilocks thing, for me the VRSCR captures some of the allure of the VRSCA while still allowing me to ride like a total tit.
So, my statement is a Streetrod, but I don't stand by it, I ride it!
Well said! I concur. The R can't real hang with some of today's street beasts. But that does not really matter- it is still pretty fast, handles well, and looks good doing it.
