If Aliens stole Your Vrod....

This thread was hinted at in another, but rather than clutter that one up with these thoughts, let's start another......

So you wake up, go to the garage and the Greys have taken your VRod.........and left you a check for YOUR "fair market value".......

Would you replace it with another VRod? YES/NO

If you answer is YES, please use this format:

Yes,

I had (have) an (04 VRSCA, with a RipperMax Turbo, a CustomSnot Paint Job, and BlowMeAway exhaust, plus......

I would look to replace it with a (08 whatever..........

And WHY: (Bigger tank, newer year, ABS, better styling, new project, whatever...........)

If your answer is NO, use this format:

NO

Then STFU. There are plenty of threads to argue about Ducattis, Triumphs, M109's, .........use them! Not here, we are discussing IF you were to buy another VRod, because you wanted to buy another VRod (and had lost the one you have), which model would you go for and why.

And for Lux: don't even mention Bentleys or that car crap.

Yes. I have a prettified and lightened 2007 AW with a lot of money in it, and I would buy an 08DX and repeat the job because I want ABS.

That actually happened to me....... Well kind of. Early one morning I had a nice group of policemen show up and take my 09DX.(Vivid). Long story for another thread. The dealership offered any bike they had to replace it with. I chose a new 11DX Denim. I love the bike, just changed up the color. I work in a dusty environment and the scratches where ticking me off. There's a lot of great bikes out there, but I'll stay with the V.

Yes. Still the best cruiser out there IMO. I have an '07 AW and would buy an '08 or newer for ABS and 1250 engine (Ok - if I had unlimited funds I'd get a Diavel, but the repairs would still piss me off).

Yes,

I had (have) an 04 VRSC-M, 04B frame, 11F engine stroked out to 1350, Stage 2 cams, clip-ons, ISR controls, internal throttle, Rizoma Fluid Tanks, Rizoma Grips, Rizoma Mid Controls, 12DX wheels, Saddlemen Hyde seat, Rick's Tank, Bub 7 Exhaust, Dakota Digital Gauge, VRFIII, Progressive suspension around, Flat Black and Candy red, and more I just can't remember.

I would look to replace it with a TR-82SS And a used 07DX!

And WHY: New project me and the wife have been wanting to do, want to throw a H6 Subura Engine in it, and of course the used DX because it already has the bigger tank, the 240 rear wheel, and then I could just start over again!

No, I'd buy a bike that doesn't burn and leak oil and has a working fuel gauge. Probably something reliable like a Ninja ZX-14R.
