Rode a V Rod
I got a package of propaganda in the mail from HD. Apparently they sent a bunch of these to Honda owners here in Canada.
It was an invitation to test ride a Harley.
I had never drove one before, so I thought why not. I called the toll free number and later the local dealer called me back to set up an appointment.
I chose to try out a V Rod Muscle, thinking I would not like it after 5 minutes and bring it back to take out a Buell. I rode it for a little over an hour and actually really liked it. It was better than I expected. Lots of power and great brakes ( ABS ). It has way different power delivery than a 919 of course. More of a steady hard pull from low RPM.
This bike was fitted with LOUD Vance and Hines pipes, which sounded good while riding the bike.
I have to admit, I enjoyed the bike and the attention it draws was fun too.
I could see me owning one of these ( If I had $ 22,000 laying around )
Do I need therapy?
