I'd rather be riding
Just wanted to introduce myself since I've actually just recently purchased a vrod. I'm Scott and I work for a secret society called the Nielsen TV ratings. We're the company that puts the little black boxes into people's homes so that we can capture what they watch on tv. I've been a biker most of my life (all japanese bikes) and never dreamed I would even consider buying a Harley until I saw my first vrod several years ago. I thought "Harley is finally targeting a new market & I'm in it". I've been looking for a bike for the past couple of years and was pretty close to buying a VTX 1800 a few times even though I'd never ridden one. After pricing what it would take to customize it even a little to maybe look more like a vrod, I gave up & started looking exclusively at vrods. I was really sold on the 240 back tire and didn't really want to do the conversion myself, so that pretty much narrowed the search down to the 06 SE. Well I have to say that I'm twice as happy with the bike as I thought I would be. The riding position is extremely comfortable to me and the bike has all the speed/power I could ever want. The downfall of my bike would have to be the small gas tank and the little-bit-too quiet pipes. I enjoy the forum & look forward in participating.
