I just traded my 06 Nightrod for an 09 Fatbob and this is what I have found. The Nightrod was faster, but the Fatbob handles better in the corners.

AndyV wants to know Dino or Syn?
I own one each .. an '00 98" Super Glide and an '07 vrod .. the vrod is a fast, powerful, high revving race/drag bike, the super glide is a torquey roadster/cruiser; both very fun, both very different other than both are v-twins and weigh about the same .. oh, and the super glide gets way better gas mileage!!

btw ~ super glide is not at all stock, the vrod has only after market pipes, with a fuelpak, and the vrod is way faster ~ period, end of story. For commuting, I take my v-rod, for road trips, my super glide, and I flip a coin for day trips.

I have an 08 dx and the only thing that came close was a victory 8 ball but at the 8th mark he just didnt have enough to keep up with the 9000 rev of the v-rod i have a cfr pipe and stage 1 air cleaner and dont forget you lose like 60 lbs when u dump the stock pipes

This is funny. A Dyna has no chance against a Vrod with equal riders. Okay, lets talk mods...ill give you 2k to my bike and 2k to yours, YOU WILL LOSE!

I will race for pinks.

1/8 mile or not, if a V rod loses to a dyna, its because the driver dont know how to ride a V rod. you can't ride them like a regular harley , ride one yourself and you will see lol..........crack her back to where you think she is gonna blow , get a tight grip , and then really twist on her...........those mo fo's scream

Not going to argue with you about relative merits of vrod vs dyna but IMO it's like comparing dynos or builds at the bar with a bunch of talkers.

It's seldom even up and the rider makes a big difference. I've spanked a couple vrods and gotten spanked by one too. So what?

If we rolled up on a light together and set to run, you'd be in for a rude awakening if you thought I'd be sitting there waiting to roll over because you have a faster bike.

You could be in for another rude awakening if you didn't hook and run hard.

Bama Dave wants to know Dino or Syn?
Thumbs up

This is too funny!! Some of you are talking about getting passed at 85mph. What happened, did the v-rod let you start before he put the key in? 85mph is second gear in a v-rod!! I had the 03 rod and on a slight down hill grade have seen 145. You go find me a stock dyna that will do that and I will kiss your butt on the court house steps and give you two weeks to draw a crowd. Not only will you lose a drag race you will look like a fool to boot. The only way a stock dyna will ever beat a stock v-rod is if the throttle cable on the rod is broke. This is a silly no brainer conversation if you think otherwise.
