Anyone riding is up on the cage jockey irrespective of the ride including pushbikes. That being written having owned over 8 versions of harley, i moved to the rod simply because on open highways on a HD deluxe special for example was pounded by the wind, not comfortable after an hour riding, breaking/weight in mountain rides etc. Now with some mods i even have fun with the rice rockets (i mean fellow riders). In conclusion, those with closed views on this subject should just ride instead of blowing wind with the flapper

Exactly, and with the very strong possibility of garnering more than 1.49% or 3% or whatever interest on your savings, the decision is an easy one. Get a bike, stay liquid and cop some pocket change? - Ya WOW is right.

You guys have it easy anyway when buying your bikes. To put it in perspective, my 04 A model with 8k miles on the clock, cost me U.S $18k here. Oh and the bank rate for a personal loan is 21%!!
Cash it was then

Squid

This pretty much defines what a "squid" is >

http://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=squid

As for being a Vrod F owner, as far as I'm concerned it's the best bike HD makes. I usually find myself as the only Vrod in the parking lot at most of the HD dealers I frequent. I just love the comments I get when I pull away from all my airhead buddies like their tied to a bridge............ Some people never learn.

Love mine. Our riding group has all kinds of bikes, one guy bought the 10 year anniversary vrod this summer, he also has Kawasaki cruiser and an Eliminator. Touring guys always ask when I'm getting one like thiers - I say never.
Made at Harley plant in Kansas City, Missouri, right along with Sportster and Dyna. all must not be Harley's.

Ride what you like - like what you ride!
Most of the people I know refer to Dynas,Softails and such as cruisers, for just cruisin around. Glides, Aspencades, BMWs are tourers.

Really? 1.50% for 4 years last week on my CVO. Got my V-Rod in September for 2.99%, and refinanced the same time as when I bought the CVO, also 1.50%. $0 down on both bikes. No way I would write a check for those when my money does SO much better in the market....

This guy was a squid, riding drunk,rear ends a car at high speed. :

..."Ariel Ballesteros, 38, of 401 Colton Avenue, Bellefontaine, was indicted for aggravated vehicular assault (F3), improper handling of a firearm in a motor vehicle (F4), and two counts of OVI (M1).

On September 13th, a two-vehicle injury accident on Route 33 near Zanesfield closed the highway for several hours.

The Marysville Post of the State Highway Patrol responded to a motorcycle/SUV crash on 33 just east of County Road 10 around 12:30 a.m.

Troopers report that a westbound 2011 Harley-Davidson VRod driven by Ballesteros rear-ended a '99 Honda CR-V operated by April Smith, 59, of 10235 State Route 638, Belle Center.

The motorcycle went off the right side of the road and overturned.

The CR-V traveled across the median, overturned, and came to rest upright in the southeast lanes of 33.

Ballesteros, who was not wearing a helmet, was transported to Grant Medical Center by MedFlight.

Smith was transported to Mary Rutan Hospital by Robinaugh EMS.

Her passenger, Jill Woods, 59, of 109 East Main Street, Belle Center, was flown to Grant Medical Center by CareFlight.

The westbound lanes and one southeast lane of 33 were closed for three hours."

Third bike for me. I'm too young for a traditional Harley and feel too old to be out on a rice rocket.

And I always wanted a Porsche since I was about 5 years old. Now I have one...my v rod.
