The V-rod is my first Harley. I'm curious if it is the first Harley for a significant percentage of V-rod buyers. (Forgive me if this poll has been done recently - I'm new to the forum.)

My fifth, after my 54 Pan, 50 Pan, 39 Knucklehead and my 89 Sportster. There were several othe rmakes in between too. Hondas, Suzukis, MotoGuzzis and Bridgestone.

Miss the 39 Knuckle the most!!

I had a Sporty for 5 yrs. I loved that bike and still have a soft spot for the model, all it's quirks included. Since I got my V-Rod, my new FAVORITE of the Harley line, my old Sporty, which ate the big twins for breakfast, suddenly feels obsolete in hindsight. With the VRSC, I took a step up the food chain because the VRSC would chomp the Sporty in race! I still got my sights set on my birthday bike...1972 XL for a custom weekend garage project. I never quit liking the traditional twins or the classics. Just the VRSC offers all I want in a ride and then some. Looks, performance, and reasonably affordable (if you shop around for the new 03 models).

Later,
Gary

It's my first Harley, but it's also my first motorcycle; so the statistic may be misleading...

1st Harley (when I finally buy one - maybe soon?) but will be my second motorcycle...'been riding my 81 Honda CX500 since '82. My car hobby (big $ sponge) untill now has prevented me from getting the FatBoy I orginally wanted.

The 1st time I saw the V-Rod changed that!
