They all look really nice with that fatties on. How's the handling? Straight line shouldn't be a problem but how bout them twisties?

In my honest opinion, it sucks in the twisties.

The original tire I had on there was an Avon which was really bad since it had more of a flat surface and then more radius towards the edge. You had to muscle it over and then it felt like it wanted to go over too far.

I have a Metzler on there now and it does much better as it has more of a even curvature.

For a real cornering bike, I would not suggest anything over a 240 which is exactly what I have on my other 3 V-Rods.

Yeah, I was so happy when I came across this thread. I can go to one spot to feed my "big tire" OCD! It would be great if we get more people with 300s to post pics here!

BAD V-R,

What kind of suspension are you running? You have any threads that shows builds of your bike?

I gotta say I keep looking back at your pics because your bike looks so good.

It's a one of a kind, air-ride mono-shock setup with a stretched and widened, carbon fiber reinforced swingarm.

No thread on the built, but here is a link to the video that covers a lot of the build. http://www.1130cc.com/gallery/showim...?i=31352&c=503

It was on the cover of Hot Bike in '08, 2 calendars, one more magazine next year and another calendar this year.
(link to Hot Bike article http://www.hotbikeweb.com/features/0...rod_night_rod/)

I have updated/upgraded a number of things since it was first built and shown in the video.

Oh, and it is for sale If you still have not made your purchase, the price is at 18K which is far less than 1/2 of what I have in it, besides the 100's of hours!

Hey guys I'm planning on doing a 300 kit on my 2012 night rod but i have the toxic v lux pipes I was concerned if those pipes will work with the way they curl over the side of the swing arm

I just happened to pick up that magazine in the grocery store a week or so after I bought my bike. That's where I learned about the forum as its mentioned in the article. Later that year I went out to the KC homecoming and saw the bike and the man the myth the legend frank himself. Great bike and an even greater guy. Then there was Jeff's,Arvid's,smoke dogs Lonnie's just to name a few. Made me not like my DX so much after looking at all of there's. i left with a lot of cool visions and inspiration of what I wanted to do with my bike. I had no idea the vrod could be turned into something like that.

Wow! That must have been a lot of time and effort, but it was well worth it! Thanks for the links. I appreciate it. I would love to buy your bike, but alas, no moolah. I plan to build up a V-Rod one day, not to the extent of yours, but that's part of the fun huh? Yours is definitely an inspiration piece though. Thanks again.
