What's up, I'm John and from Philly. I don't have a VROD yet but I hope to soon. I've got a 2001 Sporty I love to death but I've been in love with the Nightrod special since it's debut.
My brother bought one a couple of years back but he refuses to let me ride it....and rightfully soo........he'd have to replace the rear tire when I was done with it.
Anyway I'm here to look around and learn some things. Hopefully get a NRS and be able to contribute.

welcome John, you have got to get a test ride on a vrod, either from your brother or a dealer???? after that it'll all just be a matter of sellin the sporty and finding a deal on an NRS

Thanks fellas, yeah I definitely need a test ride. Soo far all I've done is sit on it. It feels like it would be comfortable but you never know until you ride it. Hell I might buy it and just to stare at all day.
As for the Sporty...I'm gonna try and keep it. It's a fun bike to toss around. I might buy a rigid frame and make a bobber project out of it. After all, it only costs me the insurance.
Well the search has begun!!

Yep, I had a great 06 Sporty too, lots of chrome goodies and it ran like a bat out o hell. Traded it on a 05B and I've never looked back. I would have kept it (the Sporty) too but buying stuff for both bikes just wasn't in the budget. Like was said above, get to a dealership and test ride. I'm sure that will motivate you to take the next step...........Tom

I've never been to the test rides at the dealer. Do you guys know if they vary from stealer to stealer? I'm also wondering how the ride experience differs between v rod models.
If you've got any input I'd love to hear it. Thanks guys
