Hmmm, sounds a lot like the mission that the V-Rod was supposed to accomplish ....

This bike appeals to the very small market of people that have more money than brains. $21K for this? Stupid.

The rake on that thing is just wrong. 34 degrees? Turns like a bus.

Fof $15,700 you can have this, which is faster.

That is what all the Vulcan Voyager 1700 owners who are paying $10,000 less for their bikes are saying about the Road Glide Ultra.

The Vaquero owners about the Road Glide.

It is all relative.

There will be guys who plunk down $21k and then add $10k in goodies to the bike.

Maybe it is for guys who made gobs of money with their brains and just want to have fun with it. It is just like going on a vacation for them. Have fun, make memories, and then move on.

Nice bikes. I haven't ridden the T120 yet but I know they get great reviews. He put the TEC Bike Parts rear shocks and progressive front springs on with a steering dampener which really improved handling. Gasser custom exhaust with the air injection delete kit pepped it up a little. The mufflers are quite loud. He swears it is quicker and more fun than the 1999 FXDX he had. He got hit sitting at a stop sign and he used the insurance money for the Triumph.
