I am a 59 yr old biker that came up with a Vrod on a trade and the Little Lady feel in love with it so we kept it and sold her StreetBob.
It is a very low mileage 2003 Anniversery with all the chrome goodies and bags too.I have added floorboards and a 5gal fuel tank.
The thing is a smooth fun little bike.
My personal rides are a 1972 FLH that I have rode for over 30yrs and my daily driver a 2011 Victory CrossCountry.
We are from Southern IL and ride mostly in the tristate area.
Hope to make some friends in here and learn a few tricks

You're riding it wrong. ;)

Welcome.
She don't ride it hard very often. We have lined em up with me on my Vic (102hp 120TQ) I can get her off the line and into second but soon as she hits 3rd she is gone.
I have did some changing on it to make her happy.Mainly taking forwards off and putting on Floorboards.The UE 5gal tank is nice too but it was a CHORE to get installed.Only thing I wish it had a cruise control.
Hope she can keep many yrs of use out of it without much trouble.
Will post pics soon

Welcome and congratulations on the new V-Rod!
Thanks but the Vrod isn't that new to me.We have had it for almost a yr now.I have had it tore down to install a UE tank kit and have done floorboard kit on it.that and some repairs like the fuel pump.

Welcome brother. Don't you ride hers or you're going to want to ditch that airhead. I've ridden airheads since I was 16. Rice, limey, Harley... These V-rods are a whole different animal. Y'all enjoy. And Welcome, these brothers know their stuff!
