23,728.22 USD is still one hell of allot of money for a v-rod. Are you guys in Canadia really having to pay that much for a V?

To answer your question though, I think the V-rod is a much nicer motorcycle than the fat bob. In the end though its really your decision to make, ride both and report back to us what you think. Whatever decision you choose for the love of god make the right one if its that expensive.

Whats a Fatbob? You mean streetbob(Dyna) or fatboy(softail). Either way if your interested in buying affordable bikes in Canada. Our fellow forum buddie PATM will be very helpful. Give ole Pat a shout.

No, there is now a Fat Bob. A Dyna styled like a street fighter.

By coincidence I was out on a '99 Dyna Sport on Friday. I'm sure the Fat Bob is better (I'd like to try one) but it would have to be a LOT better that Sport to be within a million miles of the V-Rod on any objective basis.

If you want a decent motorbike, then go V-Rod every time. If you want the Harley experience, then the Dyna has much more of it: it sounds the part, feels the part, hates turning, revs like a tractor and the handling on that 99 was apalling, but I think that was partly down to the comedy forks, and they have thicker ones now.

I like Dynas, they are fun. But I buy a motorcycle not JUST to have fun, but to have usable, safe, quick, practical transport. The V-Rod is usable, safe, quick, practical transport. I'd not want to find myself in a hurry to get home on a wet, dark night on unfamiliar roads on a Dyna.

Your call - enjoy, whichever you pick.

If you're looking for a smooth ride with lost of handling and a long power band go with the v-rod. If your looking for a comfy, ride with down low power, go Dyna. If you're a customizer and want a giant book-of-parts (ie Custom Chrome Catalog) go Dyna. If you don't mind digging around a bit for parts but will still have a custom-go-fast ride? Go V-rod..... bottom line, test ride them both and let the bike tell you what you want.
