T.Danger wants to know Dino or Syn?
Exclamation My outlaw/thug/club/whatever-you-wanna-call-it V-Rod

Here's my 2009 DX. I bought it used in 2010 with 2500 miles bone stock. Added pipes/filter/tuner first, then air ride. Last winter I made some more substantial changes with new bars/fairing/wheels and a few other little things. It's hardly custom, just bolt on stuff, but it's mine. She's a daily rider (except for 2-3 really cold months) now at 20,000+ miles and after a real tuner and maybe cams I think I'll say it's completely done and time for a new project... Probably a FXR or older Sportster chop. Anyway, here's my beater for anyone who cares...

Mods include:

D&D FatCat pipes
K&N filter
V&H FuelPak
Arnott Air Ride
Performance Machine Elite grips
Bad-VR Rifle Roadster Fairing
10" Lick's Z-Bars (internally wired)
Lick's Mirror
Painted Tins (lost the stripes)
Black HD hand levers
Radiantz Forkerz LED front signals
Radiantz 240 LED rear signals
custom license plate mount
Superchicken custom derby cover
Sportster gators (make shift boots)
Muscle wheels

Good choice of bolt on's, I like it very nice looking bike you got there. I like the pipe how does it sound and run? All black and chrome is what iam going to do with my fxdl, I just have a few more items to button up then time for some paint. I cant wait!!

That's a very sharp looking V!

Michael Psycle is reading this now saying WTF is this?
I like it a lot. If I rode a Vrod, I would like it to look like that.

It reminds me of a limousine. I'm high, so please forgive me... haha I would never ride a V-Rod, however, like Michael Psycle said, it would look like this...

Haha I can appreciate the herb-induced creative honesty. One of the things I love about this bike is that it looks different from anything I see when I'm on the road, and does everything well. It's a performance driven machine that rips when I wanna go fast, takes the twistys well enough to have fun without fearing for my life, and tours just as good as I could ever want on a 300 mile jaunt. I believe there is a tool for every job, which is why I like everything from cruisers, to dual sports, to sport bikes, to tourers, to chops... This bike just works for me cuz it does everything I need. Can't wait to add to the tool box with a few other bikes eventually...

glaucoma? or night blindness? or just a contact high from Washington?

I'm undecided as to which would be better a pizza place, Chip company, or buying Hostess and selling only in Colorado and Washington?

Sharp! How does the rear LED turn signals work for you? Visibility In day, at night?

Cool

That's a very nice bike. The V Rods are under appreciated.

Extremely bright at night, and I'd say just as bright as the stock signals in daylight, just with less surface area...

Thanks! I agree! I've ridden Sportsters, Dynas, and Streetglides... Love em all, but the V is by far the most fun to ride!


Here's some more pics just for chits and giggles...

Beautiful work of art. If it still handles great , what is not to like. Does it handle even better than stock? They should do it to all of them from the factory. Danger Boy might not be the name the motor company settles on.

Thanks man. Yeah; adjustable dampening, raise it higher than factory, Avon Cobra tires on lighter F-model aluminum wheels... Hell yeah I'd say it handles better than stock.
