This is exactly the bike I wanted Harley to build. I demoed a v-rod this summer and I hated it. The power (and power delivery) were very nice but with all that rake it was very floppy up to about 80k. I was dragging the pegs on gentle freeway off-ramps and had the exhaust down on a cloverleaf. With the rake tightened up and some more clearance it would have been a lot more fun. Voila.

Default Re: VRSCR - The V-Rod for the rest of us!

As hard as it might be to believe, I donÂ’t like being a killjoy. My dislike for Harley probably has something to with having "form-follows-function" and Frank Lloyd Wright drilled into my head from an early age. Couple that, with a good bit of Scandinavian DNA and anything less than elegant really annoys me. To me, buying a Harley is like paying for a Bang&Olafsen stereo and getting an old RCA radio. While the B&O is on permanent display at the New York Museum of Modern Art, the RCA belongs in the Museum of the Unexplained, along with the two-headed goat.



AmericaÂ’s love affair with Harley makes about as much sense as Christian Fundamentalism; it might be comforting for some, but it sure looks silly to me. If the Harley Faithful want to keep sending their love-offerings to the V-Twin Tabernacle in Milwaukee I sure hope they get rewarded in the hereafter, because theyÂ’re not getting much for their money in this lifetime.

The guy who was going to "lurk and learn" has so far posted nothing but insults and political bullshyt. That was the same guy that was leaving after losing the vote. Sure looks like he "learned" a lot, doesn't it?

He didn't lose the vote. It's because you voted more than 1000 times against him.



If anyone needs further proof of his mental illness, the fact that he is accusing others of voting more than once (as if we cared enough about him to do that) shows a paranoid narcissism that is beyond comprehension.



He claims he's not renewing so maybe he's just going down in flames.
