Well they work for me. I think the whole range of Dark models looks good. If I had the coin I'd get the Vrod Night Rod Special even though I think it's the stupidest name in motorcycling since the "Midnight Maxim".... I guess people from the midwest go for that kind of thing...(ahem)..at any rate the whole line-up looks good and follows the chrome don't get you home mantra some of us adhere to. I think they screwed the pooch dropping the Dyna Wide Glide model, that would have looked good with the all black motiff but maybe they'll bring it back after the Rocker C tanks.

Plus they allow your dark, moody side to come out.

Will this force a change to all the seller's ads from "Too much chrome to list" or "Tons of chrome" or "dripping with chrome" to "Too many darked out parts to list" or "Tons of non-shiny add-ons!" or "dripping in stuff that isn't chrome!"

Craigslist will never be the same.

Three cheers for HD finally finding out what we discovered with a can of spray paint 35 years ago.

Wonder if they're gonna do that with the Chinese Harley's too? Maybe a black dragon motif? Can't wait to see if the Chicom HD's use old Honda knock-off motors...

Don't say I didn't warn you (hear that HD Union people?)
