Less than six months ago I bought my first V-Rod. A turbocharged and slammed yellow '06 SE. The ride was horrible. It was all I could do to get it to turn with extra wide rear tire and the mega-stiff suspension. It was loud as he!! and made my ears ring every time I rode it. I had to ride with my right leg contorted to keep it off of the turbo system. In short, it was amazing to look at and to see run. It would all but rip my arms out of the sockets under acceleration. It was a true love/hate relationship. A friend started bugging me to buy it from me and I ended up selling it at a profit. A first for me. So a few days ago I pick up a used low-mileage '09 AW that is bone stock. Quiet, comfortable, and boring. Just like me. I have no intention to make it any louder or faster. My buddy came over with the SE yesterday and I salivated a bit, but am more than happy to have a well-mannered bargain-basement stocker under me! Oh, and an extra $10k in my pocket between the selling prices.
