This is really great. Now if only Porsche had designed all of the H-D motors, there could be even more records broken.



I wonder how much money was spent developing the V-Rod dragsters vs. the competition. Chances are, a lot more considering how deep H-D's/Screamin' Eagles/Vance & Hines pockets are.



What is the big deal about this anyway? Does it prove anything about a stock V-Rod vs. a stock Japcycle? No, it only shows who spent more money/time on their racing vehicle.

Default I'll just get it out of the way now.

Harley's suck.

Porsche designed the Vrod.

The Vance and Hines bike has little to do with the original.

Arm chaps, finger chaps, ear chaps, handle bar tassles and glove fringe.

Vtwins are useless engines. Inline 4's are the only way to fly.

Harley's are way over priced, and thier riders are old losers.

Harley's suck.



Think that covers it all, did I miss anything?

Default Harley finally using new technology

This breakthrough was only possible after the switch to laminar-flow fringe for decreased wind drag, along with smaller and lighter belt buckles.

Nope, I think you did a pretty good job. Kinda stole all the squids' thunder though, didn't you?

Plus the rider cutdown his alcohol consumption from an 18 pack to a 12 pack prior to the race.



Putting his chick on Jenny Craig this season helped as well.

A V-rod is not a Harley. Regardless, this competition, like any motor sport competition, is about a few guys putting in a big effort and getting recognized for it.
