why didn't they compare it to another crotch rocket instead of a Deuce, most likely because against other crotch rockets it comes up short.
I know when the v-rod first came out that sales were virtually so dead that they actually shut down and temporally closed the v-rod production line for about 4 to 5 months because they had warehouses full of them and no one was buying, why do you think that the v-rod prices have steadily come down since its introduction, while Deuce prices continue to rise.
Can you imagine how fast you could make a v-rod with $10K and still have less than his $30K invested? :mrgr:Daniii said:I rode with a '03 103ci SE Road King over from New Orleans. I have to admit, that engine is STRONG. In 5th gear roll ons at 85 we were side by side to 115 mph (I know, I could have shifted down to 3rd and cleaned him, and I DO have the big Windshield, and he has a short one). But it was impressive.
And his wife can ride forever on the back. The '04 SE Ultra is looking pretty good as well. Oh yes, the sticker on the SE road King was $30K.
An interesting footnote to Harley history is that both Vaughn Beals (who went on to lead the management group that bought H-D from AMF) and Pete Schutz (who was for a while CEO of Porsche) both worked for Cummins Engine Co. in Columbus, Indiana in the early 1970's.VA V-Rod said:And second what to they think Porsche and HD hasn't worked together in the past. Heck, Porsche work with HD on the development of the heads, to improve the flow, on their EVO engine which their loved 88 evolved.
