Actually, some Harley guys don't even think of the V-Rod as a real Harley either. But most will give me the thumbs up. The reason why Harley produced the V-Rod is to hit the younger market who wants a Harley but do not want a hog. Especially made for sport bikers in mind. Therefore, they went to Porche and they help them designed it. The V-Rod is the fastest cruiser bike in production.
After owning both kinds of bikes, here are my experiences and thoughts.

The more exoctic bikers such as Bigdogs, Choppers, V-Rod, Customs, etc. The riders are cool as . Very Friendly and ready to talk bike with you anytime. Doesn't matter if it's sport or cruisers. They understand a bikerís heart. They may not wave back all the time but if you talk to them in person, they are always nice.
The Big Tank Metric cruisers. There maybe several reasons why they don't want to associate with sport bikes even the exotic bikes.
IMHO, I think most, but not all of these types of bikers are at that age or at that level in life which they are inferior to the more outright in your face fast badass show off bikes. They just don't feel the groove so they don't understand it. Especially when there's this http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xzRyRfqbSJg (I know..it's old) or this
Imagedeleted(The picture does not depict the type of riders Iím referring but you get the point) How would you feel, once young and vibrant, now blown away by all these sport bikes?? We sport bikes folks out there have to admit that whenever you see cruisers bike you usually passes them. Not intentionally but we do. Also, we must understand that because of MH, we have created a community that is more mature, but there are a lot of non-members who does not share our culture and follow the same kind of respect. They are usually the on the road and that give us a bad name. We have to look at both side of the coin. When I talk to them, I feel them, therefore I donít really get annoyed when they donít respond the same. I mean, can you imagine yourself being 55, fat, your had shribbled up and riding a sport bike? You just donít because it doesnít fit the image. I would be grumpy too. Generally, I think they are good people with good hearts and of course there are the bad apples. I would definitely give them some slack. If you give the peace sign and they donít response, do it anyway, just because you want to defend the goodness and image of our fellow sport bikers.

"What you do not wish upon yourself, extend not to others." ó Confucius (ca. 551 - 479 B.C.E.)

If anyone is offended I didnít mean to. These are just MHO. Peace

I could not make up my mind about buying a Vrod or a Warrior, when ever I talked to a non harley guy they would say go with what you want. Everytime I talk to a harley guy, including my uncle they would not even hear me out, just cut me off and say buy a harley.

Harley. More true to the culture ..well...particularly this. Fast as .

You tall?
Depends what you want to do with your bike. Cross country ride anytime soon? I lowered my bar, so after about 45 mins of rding, my lower back would start to ache.

The Special is one pretty bike, I might have bought one, to the very end I was still undecided on what I wanted. I could not find a NightRod Special anywhere so I bought the warrior. A little part of me wishes I would have waited, but I am happy with what I got.

The intakes are probably just for looks.

Those pipes are Morton Executioners, I had some, hella HOT, no heat shields and no baffles, just turn down headers pretty much. I burned holes in about 5 of my pants, then decided to change them. The tips drug to quick too.

I like Harleys, even owned a few way back when.
When I was 16 I even rode from N.O. to L.A. one summer on a Sportster.

Scoots right, MOST HD riders are pretty cool people.

Unfortunately, it's the loud mouthed, ignorant idiot few that give the rest a bad name. The ones that say thing like: Buy American!! When nothing in their house, from their TV to the clothes they're wearing is, Made in the USA.

I'm as patriotic as the next guy, but be real. We live in a global economy, where very little on a Harley is even made in the U.S.A. anymore.

Besides, to me, supporting the U.S.A. is done by things more substantial than buying an HD, like serving in the armed forces for example.


One parting response to the sister in a whorehouse saying:

Harley Davidson; Yesterdays technology, available today, at tomorrows prices!!:laughing6

:laughing6 serious, look at the money I put into mine and its just now as fast as a generic 600-750 sportbike, but still handles like a harley ( <~~not really, but it did cost me money to make it right)
buuuuuuut, that being said, I love my bike, I dig its looks and its ride since I have redone the suspension goodies, I love the power it makes since I redid the motor but, I love it being different most of all.

We have a young guy in our club, instead of buying a new metric, he went and bought a 68 Triumph, beautiful bike and its got character, and its somewhat different. Thats something I would have done at his age too
