    The tech-spec tank and frame pads are a really good help with heat if you need it. My taint is pretty calloused

    BuellyBagger and others are the true paint pro's around here, but if you want to see an amateur do it:

    in typical site fashion this thread has made a hard left-turn into "V-Rod land" but then again considering the level of boredom on here why not?
    little known V-Rod fact: its powerplant is one of only TWO motorcycle engines in HISTORY to pass the Dusseldorf Durability Test or as it's known in the industry....."The Death Test."
    i love mine and though the cool-factor purely subjective....IMO it's the coolest H-D product i've ever owned.

    I've always liked them and could have bought one from the same guy I bought my Ully from at a good price but they're so uncomfortable, It's like I'm trying to touch my toe's while riding.

    OK, this thread has come completely off the rails! For the folks online that never liked the clam shell seated position and low seat height of the v-rod, HD came out with the StreetRod for 2006/2007. It's the ugly red headed step child of the ugly red headed step child. All motorcycles IMHO require pegs that are in a neutral position and a little bit of ground clearance, because going fast is always more important then looking cool!

    Welcome to buellxb.com!

    I'm still wanting to hear more ride updates. I liked my CR, it was just a bit too much for me.


    (but the only thing stopping me from buying another is a lack of garage space).
