Perhaps today's V-Rod is akin to the Ironhead of yesteryear? Those who own them love them to bits, those who have never ridden one, jeer.

Finance permitting I'd certainly own one. My only reservation would be the restrictions on doing my own spannering, but since I've already got enough projects, I'd probably send the beast to a dealer to be serviced anyway!
72 Ironhead, goes better than it stops!

I've never ridden one, or even seen one close to, so I have no idea what they are like. Certainly they are rare in the UK
Shoot, a man could have a good weekend in Dallas with all that stuff...

I know two local Bro's who own them. One loves his. The other hates his.

Gee, that sounds like ANY Harley! Definitely a love-hate relationship.
