That's why I bought mine. Went all the way up to 120 in my softail and just got sick of it all. Actually I've not had one typical HD rider bad mouth the v rod. Might not be their style but most like the bike.

That's one consideration but with interest rates at 1.49% I'd be inclined to hang onto the cash and allow the banks to take on the lending risk.

/ These insufferable squids and their damn Triumphs think they've got the world by the tail.

If you can find an interest rate at that level congrats to you. Buying my Triumph this week they offered my their lowest (3.4) and my credit union (3.8) their lowest. No one is giving Bike Loans for 1.49%.

What year was that? I came in with a fist full of cash and they cut the $$$ even more and basically threw in an extended warranty for nothing. My friend who runs the Triumph dealer up in San Fran couldnt even match these guys prices.

Real. Fast. Harley.
Friends who might tease you have to....you can simply roll away. What can they say? That vrod is just. too fast? Disgusted at how cool it looks. put off how it draws a crowd? Had a guy today ask if it was new, and when did they come out? All I know is how much I love mine.

Of course it had the fine print. I'd like for them to find a flaw with my credit. I'm not in the market for a 2012 tho. I love my 02.

If it is I give a rats ass cause I really like my V-Rod.
Who gives a stuff what other people think. Just enjoy your bike. That's what it is for.
