I love my 04 VRSCA...have only had it since May...wouldn't really want to replace it but would love to have a second bike for long distance touring...Ultra Classic, Goldwing or something along that line...

Cool

I get attached to my stuff.... I'd have to hunt them down and kill them. Lucky for me my Rott, Kimber would most likely detour them and have them looking in another garage

Lost my '03 to Super Storm Sandy. A week after the insurance adjuster deemed it totaled, I had an '02 in my garage! Need to post a pic.
Gotta luv em!

This is a good question, would I? I don't know, what I might do is something I was think of doing back in 06 when HD released the Final Anodized laden bike and buy one of those and put 02 skins on it because by 06 the frame was an acceptable color instead of the pale shite gray it was, the motor etc... where all upgraded to better workings etc... But to buy another 02 Without the extended warranty? Cannot say I would. The bike I have now will stay with me forever simple because its the Best damned looking one out there, its my 1st bike and I could never see any reason to get rid of it as its worth "Nil".

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.

Hmmm, if you would have asked my last week. I would have said YES- I have a 06 VRSCR, and I would have replaced it with a 06 VRSCR! But after getting destroyed my GRISO this weekend.

I will say NO, a big NO. I would just save a little more cash and get a DIAVEL or maybe a low mileave BMW K1200R

Yes, and go AW for the 240 rear tire, and make similar mods as I have made to each of my A's.

Yes

I have a red Night Rod. Some aftermarket and hand made parts.

I think I would buy a 2006 SE in yellow. Bigger tank and saw one this summer I almost bought. Decided not to because I would miss my Night Rod after selling it (I couldn't afford both right now)

No, but I would hunt the bastards down and give them some lead poisoning for making me part with my NightRod before its time.

Since I willingly let my vrod go I probably shouldn't even be in this thread.

BUT!

I would not buy another vrod unless it was a completely new model with a completely different frame. One that would handle better overall, be more comfortable, and have a 6 speed transnission with appropriate gear ratios.

So you went and got a bike that did the exact opposite of all that....

Actually, I am confident I can run the Dragon quicker with the FLD than the Vrod!
