Banned from Dyno shootout !

Saw an ad for a dyno shootout at one of the local HD dealers here in Nashville. Not much info, so it said check their website. I go online there, first thing I see is $20 for the run, so I think-pretty good, we'll see what the Trask is putting out. Gets better- next it says winner takes all. I'm now thinking, this should be a cake walk. Then in fine print- air cooled Harley's only- bummer, but call for more info. OK I'll call. They put me thru to parts guy. I tell him my bike is air cooled, but I transfer the heat to the front with a glycol solution. After a couple seconds of silence " Do you have a Vrod, they're not eligible for the contest?" I figure OK, can I get the pull for $20 ? He'll check. Comes back , yeah they'll do that. Then I ask, what was the prize , it says Winner Takes All ? He'll check. Back again, no prize. I ask for clarification; The winner takes all, but it's all of nothing, and because I have a Vrod I'm not eligible to win? He'll check Comes back - Thats right Good thing I didn't mention the turbo. And HD wonders why I do all my own work...

SCHD wants $279 for a test and tune and ain't time for me yet....waiting for one of those shoot-outs in my area. In the meantime I've been doing paint stripe and manhole cover launches for kicks. When you get old and bored and start wondering if your heart's okay, there's lots of ways you can check if you have a V-Rod.

I brought my custom to one of these a few years back in San Jose, CA.

121 cubic inch TP motor in a home built pro-street frame. 125 hp and an 11 second quarter, at 130. It was very overwhelming for me to thrash the bike that hard while sitting completely still.

If I ever had the chance to do it again I'd probably do better.

Anyway, the owner of the dealership rolls out a couple of brand new VRODs with the tags still waving on them. Beat the crap out of them for a couple of runs each. I'm guessing the guy doing the "riding" had a lot more dyno time than I ever will. He pegged the throttle while staged, bounced the rev limiter till he got the green and never lifted on the throttle or used the clutch. He didn't even bother to sit on the bike, just stood on the side of it and banged the gears.

It was really impressive to watch. Not sure I wanted to be the unlucky person that bought one of those bikes after it got worked like that, cold, right off the showroom floor.

Years later, when I bought my DX, I test drove one at a different dealer. Beat the absolute crap out of it. I tried to break it. Upshifts, downshifts, over revs, hard accel, hard deccel.....

Brought it back and they asked me how I liked it. I said I'm gonna buy one.... just not this one. Picked one up a couple of weeks later with 4 miles. I can only hope they were easy ones.

I did one of the dyno drag contests too.I won with 119hp and a 10.20 et run on my 03 V-Rod.No way to do this on a real drag strip.Not much challenge at all on the drag dyno.

I did another dyno drag run w V-Rods already set up on the machine and held a perfect pro tree launch all weekend.

The local dealer here has dyno shootouts too.Any bike can run.Last one i did I won the V-Rod class and the whole shootout.They gave me the money that they charged for each run.


The dealer that wouldn't allow V-Rods to enter the shootout for competition doesn't know how to run a dyno shootout.You have a winner for each class,and a winner over everyone that entered.

Was the dealer Boswell's ? I want to make sure I don't spend any money with them next time I'm in Nashville.

No, the dealer on Charlotte Pike. I have no reason to dislike them, I simply thought the conversation was humorous.
