I just got on it and rode. By myself, to clear my head. I rode it for the whole tank (about 140 miles) not really going anywhere in particular. It handles nice, and has lots of power. I stopped for a water and a couple of airheads were checking it out...they asked if it was fast, and how I liked it. I told them it was pretty quick, and that it was the only harley I would own.

We all agreed that the vrsc line is the future of HD. :soapbox:

I don't care if you don't like the "r". I like it, and I'll probably ride it again tomorrow. If I had one wish, it would be that I would like to have more people to ride with.

Congratulations! When people come up to me and ask if my bike is fast, my standard response is to deadpan "well, there is talk of Harley making a velcro seat standard..."

That usually gets me a smile and a nod. :)

Bgjames, glad you like what you ride. That is the best sentiment that any manufacturer can hope for. Ride often, ride far. No matter who says what about your bike, it is yours, ride it any way you want to. Just be advised that if you ride naked you will probably be dealing with the popo at some point, maybe the point of a gun!!

Hmmm... (I hesitate to ask, but can't help myself) and you know this... how?

Yeah, I rode mine last night (rarely ride at night) and I seem to think a lot of how awesome this bike is and how much "therapy" it provides.

Should be 12 (I even agree with the pranksters), but the rules allow only 10 . . .

went on my ride with vrodaj from this forum. What a trip. A lot of fun but really far. The last 100 miles was a little painful. The sundowner seat is good for 200 miles max I think.

I gotta find a seating solution. I don't think the sundowner is for me. I'm thinking of reworking the stock one.
