The Ending of an Era.

After a lot of consideration. I have traded my Beautiful 2007 919 for a 2008 Harley Davidson Night Rod Special. I was just in the mood for something different.

I'm interested in hearing everyone's opinions, because I know how deep the love for the 919 runs on the site.

And if you're interested in getting a great Niner, the link for the place where they are selling it is below. And I have to say this is a great place to get a bike. I drove 8 hours round trip, for the deal they offered me.

What kind of half fairing did you have on your 919? It is one of the only ones that I have seen that really seems to compliment the lines of the bike rather than ruin it. Did you get good wind protection?

Anyways, congrats on the new-to-you bike. I don't know anything about that model, most cruisers aren't really my thing, but in the end what you think about it is what counts.

Motorcycles are like women, lots of models to pick from and not a one shoe fits all. Some trade them in for new models or keep the same for life. Didn't Erma Bombeck say, life is like a garage full of motorcycles, never seem to have enough? Or is that the box of cherries? Anyway, they're all sweet.

That's a Ducati Monster Fairing, that I painted & put on it. And it reduced some wind, but it's pretty low profile.

Personally I think you will have a freakin' blast!

I love twin motors myself. Funnest bike I ever had was the 996 Superhawk Honda.

Happy riding brother!

I tried the sport cruiser thing once, a Meanstreak, couldn't deal with the feet forward thing!

Have fun.

I've owned Harley's and have a couple of metric cruisers...smaller ones, but they are considered cruisers. Definitely a different ride, but they are all good.

I love my 919 for the power and agility. Never had a cruiser that could corner decent...but that's not what they are about.

I rode a V Rod at a Harley/Buell demos back when they did demos in Bloomington Indiana. Long, low, heavy, and surprisingly little low end.

I'm beginning to think that I could have a standard reply for 90% of all threads started here. "I've ridden one of those. I prefer my Super Duke."

Thank you all for your feedback.

I took my first real ride on the night rod Saturday. I can say it is a completely different feel from the 919. But not different in a bad way, just different. The 919 allows for a lot more versatility, but the v rod is just bad a$$. And I love the feel of it. Also after a long ride, I didn't cramp up. It was very comfortable.

Change is good.

It is a different feel. They can be comfortable...two up is usually better on a cruiser. It really comes down to how you use your bike to some degree. Harley's hold their value so no matter what it's all good.

I have cruisers, sport bikes a trike and the 919 and honestly if you told me I had to get rid of any of them I'm not sure I could...but then I fall in love with my bikes.
