Who would purchase a V-rod that felt this way?

If you're riding in the rain then what difference does it make how much water the fender slings? You're in the rain already.......


The F would be a very nice bike with a couple thousand bucks worth of mods, just like all of the other V-rods.

I like to see plenty of air between the tyre and the mudgaurd - it implies a suspension system that is capable of doing something useful.
I agree with you 100% but with bickering over the rear there are alot of guys who want form over function. my road glide shocks were at stock height,im also 6'2. most people i know had their baggers dumped in the rear. i wanted mine to handle as much as a bagger could. i also had no chicken strips on my scooter.

when i get my muscle, i will change the rear shocks (progressive or ohlins)for a better ride . not to be kewl
