    Try a Concours 1400...it's a rocket that will make the Vrod feel like a 250.

    You were not kidding. This past weekend I drove a Concours 14. Wow...what a bike. I had done some research on it and a few others lately, as I am considering buying a new bike. The Concours is amazingly fast and feels unbelievably solid and sure footed. That monocoque frame design might be the difference.

    If you're tall, try a Super Tenere.

    If you're cheap, find a low-mileage st1100. Fantastic S/T for $3,500 or so.

    I own a V-Rod and its a blast to own and run. I don't need to try and impress other individuals by owning a hog.. I call that ignorant. Maybe one should try something new. There an awesome bike to run. For each there own. I am looking at a Road King at the moment but keeping the Rod. It will go up in value as yrs go by.

    No doubt. One day people will be asking what was Harley thinking with letting them go?

    There is no rational reason to buy a Vrod...there are any number of other sport-tourers on the market, most far superior.
