I am from southeast Missouri where other vrodder's are few and far between. I have had my '03 since early august. My wife and I love our vrod and ride every chance we get. There are alot of riders in this area but not very many of them have had this experience. It's easy to tell from the stares, the oohs and ahs and all the questions we get about the bike. Glad to be a part of this.
