I was at my local watering hole last Fri when I noticed a V-Rod in the parking lot , nice looking bike but it looked a little unusual sporting 18" Apes on it . Personally I didn't care for the look , just didn't seem to go with the bike IMO.

I wouldn't think it would fit the look and I wonder about the riding posistion.

I searched and found this:



Actually it looks more comfortable to me then the normal position for a vrod...

I like it!

IMHO, forward controls on a sporty-kinda bike don't make sense, so why the hell not add apes if they work for ya... A chopped up rat rod would be interesting as hell.

Apes are one of those things your ride you decide thats that.
But on a VROD. Ok long as I aint paying for it.

Looks a litle to far forward for me, but when it comes to Harley it doesn't matter.

I looked at one that was at a local dealer. IMO it looked cool but it would be real hard to get the most out of the bike in that position. These bikes are meant to be rode hard and they do make good power. It may be more comfortable but I just don't think you could ride it to the bikes full potential.

I'd like to apologize to all VRod owners for my insensitive comment.......they're fine machines and you should enjoy owning one
