Didn't you notice the vibration when you test rode the V-rod? The heavy weight? The lack of turning performance? Weak brakes, etc., etc.......

If you don't want a motorcycle for performance, then I guess the "image" is what you went for. Good luck.
This was going through my head when shopping for a motorcycle, Do I want to be a Hipster, or do i want performance! i was looking at Triumph Bonnevile or the Thruxton VS the CBR1000RR. Went with performance.
