Took the bike in for the 1k service this morning. I had a couple of questions that the check in guy wasn't sure about, so he brought a Tech out from the service area.

After answering the questions we got to talking about the V in general. I told him this was my favorite of three HD bikes I've owned...although not the most popular of the lineup. He said without a doubt it is the best bike MoCo makes. Says he has only seen a couple of non-operator caused mechanical issues and by far the least repairs required (which most here already know). He also went on about the base HP of the V versus other HD's comparing it to the 110 for ~$30k.

I didn't go in to validate what I already know...I really like my bike. But it was nice to hear positive comments from a guy that has seen a few bikes in his day and isn't try to make a commission selling one.

Thought I'd pass along...

I was surprised when the guy running the dyno (at a dealer) told me the numbers he got on HIS V. Now that's the kind of guy I want tuning mine. :D

He's either a salesman in training or a guy I would want working on my bike. Stick with him for service!

What's cool in the zone of dealers I live around is that the Zone rep loves and rides V-Rods.

If it was Josh over at Republic then he is not in training to become a sales guy, he just genuinely embraces technology while respecting tradition as well.

Alestex, What dealer were you at?

It would be nice to have a dealer around that supports the V. The dealer I bought my bike at doesn't have any v-rods for sale on the floor. Sad.

It was Rob at Republic HD. I'm sure he isn't trying to get into sales, but is a guy who loves turning a wrench on bikes. Very nice guy.

I've been dealing with them for a couple of years. Based on what I've heard about other dealers, not sure there's another out there that supports the V more than them.
