I have a Triumph Speedmaster and would love a Vrod. Also i like the Thunderbird storm,has anyone rode both? If so what is your opinions?
A guy who rides with us has a NightRod and i think it looks sweet but a bit low?
V is not old school Harley. It's a niche bike so not everyone will like it. A great bike if you like a cruiser but don't want to run out of throttle.

depends on how you like to ride I think. I looked at a Thunderbird (the factory is not too far from me) but ultimately decided on a V-Rod
the Thunderbird is an alternative to a traditional Harley cruiser for sure. Its a bit heavier than a V-rod and not as powerful. It handles well for a cruiser style bike and is reliable. It sounds different to a HD
the V-Rod is something different again.....
Over here in UK the V-Rods hold their value a lot better too, which was another plus point
mostly its styling differences. Engine size went from 1130 to 1250 about 5 years ago, along with back tyre size from 180 to 240
Street Rod had a bit more ground clearance "out of the box"
some models have reduced controls/seats/bars etc so the actual ergonomics of the bike are a little different and may/may not suit depending on your height/leg/arm length
if you really like the look of a particular model and out of the box it dosent fit so well there are many solutions available - thats half the fun of it, customising the bike to suit yourself and how you ride
