Zizou, Awesome ride! The Night Rod Special is one of my favorite power cruisers and would consider one if I didn't already have too many toys(with payments). Although I'm not diggin' the changes on the 2011-12 vrods.

__________________
, I have sit on the m109 , it has some bulk to it , but still a nice bike indeed.
I have rode my friend's v rod & it is nice ,but not as comfortable for me becasue I'm short. [ 5ft. 61/2 in. ] so the riding postion had me streched some.
Would love to have either bike though.

I like the Night Rod, but I also like the Night Train, which is a soft tail. They don't make those anymore, but I ride one from time to time.

I like the whole "blacking out" the whole bike thing that Harley has going. The Night Rod is nice but, I can't wait till they do the same the muscle. The cuts and wheels just make it look a little better. IMO
