I will say this is my first Harley but coming from sportbike racing, I wanted to have a smoother transition by getting a VRod than going to a full blown cruiser. Is this true all true? If it is I give a rats ass cause I really like my V-Rod.
Most of them had their girl friend help them pick out their outfits. I tell them I only ride my dyna for parades.

Ha, I love being the exception to rules....had my CVO 5 days and put 750 miles on it already. I traded a 2008 FXSTC Softail that had 42,800 miles on it. Actually, according to HD user survey's, CVO owner's ride their bikes much more than standard production bike owners....not sure if that's accurate or not.

I can't stay off either one of my HD's !!

When I ride my 39 Knucklehead, I look at all the other "late" model air heads and think to myself, "they are not riding original Harleys, bunch of wannabeeeeeesssss.................

In 36 when the first, was supposed to be the first OHV was produced, there was an 8 valve race bike produced by Harley back in the 19teens
( http://mecum.com/auctions/lot_detail...D=CA0809-82451 ) that was produced to compete with Indian 8 valve race machines.

Then there was the first first twin cams model, JDH which was produced in 1928 and only until 1929 ( http://www.motorarchive.com/includes...ail.php?id=346 )

When the Knucklehead model was released in 1936, riders did not take to the bike for the first couple of years as everyone swore up and down that flatheads were the way to go...some people still love flatheads to this day because of their simplicity.

So these johnny wannnabbbeees with their overhead valve twin cam made bikes are squids too, because they are riding a somewhat new technology and not riding flatheads.

When you explain this to them, watch their eyes roll up in the heads and the spit dribble from their lips.....squids....all of em...if you ain;t riding old iron, you ain't riding an original Harley!!!

This one? This was at the H-D Museum... I thought it was pretty cool, and quite advanced for its time.
Edit: Didn't click your link first. Yup, that's the one.

Well that's how it goes, Flatheads looked down at the knuckles, Knuckles looked down at the Pans, Pans to shovels, Evos/Twinkies - Revo ect. ect. Don't even start on the K models and Sporty's. There was even rigid/shock, springer/internal spring and hand/foot shift competition or bad blood. Ridiculous isn't it? HD is a phenomenon and always has been.

Exclamation

20 years from now, Revo riders will look at the new models in the 2023 lineup and say they aren't real Harleys... Trust me on this.

2005 Sportster, sat too high and vibrated too much, 2008 Street Bob still too much vibration, and ran hot, but much more an all around ride than the Sportster. 2010 VRSCA, almost no vibration, runs cool, people always make comments how good it looks. Stops and handles well, ABS is great. Almost set up for touring. Will put the Hepco and Becker Box on the back this weekend. Box is just the right size for tool roll and a few emergency parts, helmet and gear while stopped. Who cares what anyone else thinks?

I would love to own a Harley VR1000, simply for the pure pleasure of going on Harley rides and pissing off every single guy there.

All you need to do is buy a Buell.

A Buell was never really a Harley, but the VR1000 was.

Better yet, I could buy a Victory... and rebadge it with Harley decals.

Ride a VR1000 to a HD function and 9-10 people will have zero clue as to what it is. Hell, half of them don't even know what a V Rod is.

I ride this on HOG events and it never fails that somebody complains and says I should ride in the back.

LOL that's because if you rode up front they'd never catch you.
