Just passing thru
Yea if you look at the specs on the Harley site, They are very similar in weight seat height and length. Maybe thats why I like it. I like those dual headlights. Like Lakedrunk said its not everyones cup of tea. The slots cut out of the exhaust sheild look great and I love the fat front tire.I love it. Looks like my V- Rod
Nice! Your Dyna in the front page pic is one sweet machine. I would really like to go with the 130 front on the V but I think I need to go to a 18 inch rim. Now that the Fat Bob has 49mm forks I have been considering swapping the whole front end. Any words of wisdom?I think I might have invented the FatBob, that is, if you assume that all the guys stripping police and Shriner bikes down to their essence weren't already going it decades before.
My first HD was the first year SuperGlide, 1971 Shovelhead, bought in 72, ugly fiberglass body module, front end obviously from a Sportster.
I only had it a few weeks before I launched it off an uphill curve, I was enjoying rolling on 3rd gear full throttle coming out of corners on a curvy road, just farting around, and the throttle cable came loose at the carb on a full throttle roll-on, pushing the wire back that way had no effect, and I wasn't experienced enough to get it around the corner or shut it off, instead I bailed and the bike crashed w/o me, bending the front end.
I shopped around for a front end, since SuperGlide was a new concept, the only option I had was a stripped down police bike front end, wide glide and fat 16" front wheel and tire to match the rear. I also swapped out the jet-Ski body module for a bobbed rear fender, and a solo seat. I absolutely loved it.
Mike my last bike had a 96" and a six speed trans. It wasn't HD (S&S) but I'm sure it's gotta be close to the same performance, and it certainly wasn't a dog. It was a pretty fast bike, you already know it won't be faster than the V but I honestly think my last bike wouldn't have been left far behind in a race.I ordered a Rinehart 2:1 and associated other Stage 1 stuff and will have it put on next week. I am interested in seeing how the 96 cubes perk up. After owning a VROD it is going to be tough to be satisfied with a weak runner. Hopefully I can get what I want out of the bike without having to resort to much more than some cams and head work.
Bagger and a much bigger motor.What are you thinking HD has in mind for 09 on the V?
You know me, I am not a big street racer type. I just like a punch in the butt on occasion and a pretty face.Mike my last bike had a 96" and a six speed trans.
