Well, that's what always ran through my mind every time I would read these forums about how "buying the bike is just a down payment for mods" and "let the mods begin", etc...

I just thought - hey, I always wanted a V Rod and when I get one, I will just keep it as is, what's the big deal???

Anyway, I'm staring at the bike last night and the mods that I am sure to start soon started running through my head. I now know what you are all talking about. I guess the addiction has begun!

I haven't spent tons of money on my bike but everytime I buy just one more thing I always say "ok this it the last thing I'll buy" and then start looking at the bike and seeing another "one more" thing I want. It's never ending

Modding can definitely be an addiction. More so for some people than others but everyone makes their bike their own in some way. Charge what the market will bear, at least that's what Harley-Davidson does!

Ha, I felt the same way! While I admired the mods many have done I decided that my AW was perfect just the way it was. Then I bought the chrome cover for the coolant hose and it is over for me. Now I know how an alcoholic feels when passing a liquor store when I pass a dealership. :broke:

Face it, your screwed. I guess its best to think of your V-rod as another family member that need to be fed, dressed, and constantly bought the newest gadgets to keep it happy.

I don't understand all you people feeling the need to change everything on the bike. Can't you just ride it the way it came from the factory? Sheesh some people just can't leave well enough alone. :) :hidesbeh:

I paid 15,9 for my 03.I've only put several grand into a few minor mods.It's time to get on w some serious modifications,sooo,in a few months I have the intent to rip the bastard down to the frame and cure every little thing that has bothered me that can't be done w the bike assembled.Heads,cams,crank,pistons,custom painted frame w LED brackets welded on and of course all the rest of the fasteners that need to be chromed or replaced w SS.Brembo brakes,chrome tree clamps and on and on and............
Like my Dad used to say,God rest his soul......It's only money for Christs sake!

Don't go to kc is all I gotta say, from what I was told about others in the past showing up with a stock bike one year and the next was all bling bling, it happened to me :banghead: I think there is something in the water at basswood.

I think if I were to show up at KC with my somewhat boring stock bike I would feel like the red headed step child. :bolt

It starts small and then starts to build in momentum. First I added a new seat. Then the mirrors and that annoying gap between the mufflers and the third volume. After doing the Rick's tank I think I'm in a full force slide. Next its gonna be the 240 rear tire mod :D
