A guy I work with just laid his vRod down doing 70 through the hill country without a helmet. He's alive but not happy.

I have debated for a while on getting a streetrod. A bike with more comfort, and can do more lean angle than 90% of the sportbike riders up in the twisties.

Decided against it but it may be something in my future, or something along those lines.

The VROD is not a bad bike at all. I'm not a Harley guy, but I like them.
Mainly because it's a basic Honda motor architecture that was expanded and refined by Porsche. So it's actually decent when it comes to displacement versus power, it's a lot better than a typical HD.
I've ridden one and it actually does handle and accelerate well.

BadDad is right about the new HDs coming with 103s and a 110 option. Unfortunately he is not right about it moving an 800 lb bike quickly...

I still think Muscle or Night Rod over softails or baggers reason look better and its built by Porsche it rides same and has good powa! Baggers or other softails maybe when I'm 50+ or so..lmao!

Well...I'm not talking about taking an un-modded 103ci harley to the 1/4 mile track and bragging on it's speed. Sure, the 350-400lb liter jap bikes will haul ass, and fast, and get to 180 pretty damn quick. Yes, that is fast. And I'm sure the vrod will haul ass too, never rode one. I guess in my old age, my 88ci Harley is plenty fast for me...I mean, I don't go out and race it or anything, but the fukker will get up and go. Obviously it is nowhere near as fast as the sport bikes I've owned. I can only imagine what a 103 or 110ci v-twin would feel like, bet it'd be a nice ride

My supercharged Tundra is fast (IMO)...but something like a corvette or other expensive sports car is obviously a helluva lot faster, though I still prefer my truck

V-Rod/night Rods are pretty bad ass looking with that fat rear tire drag bike look. But two things I didn't like when I road one were one at about 80 mph and above it felt like my body was a parachute and the wind was bashing my chest. Two, maneuvering in a parking lot at low speed was a bit of a challenge for me, my lack of saddle time on that type of long wheel base bike.
But other then that it was cool muscle bike worthy of the HD badge IMHO
But I do like the baggers with the big front faring and wind screen too it seems more practical and comfortable for longer rides
