Yup, night rod is hot as hell. I just wish they would make that bike to the street rod specs which looked identicle but had a 40 degree lean angle instead of 33, increased ride height and a sharper rake. much better handling bike. but they stopped making that bike this year. Appearantly Harley doesnt like having a bike that can actually handle

That would quite possibly be the only Harley I would ever buy - Bug likes he does

That is a very looking bike!! You should buy it and get the Screaming Eagle kit too.

Ya, he already has one of those. The fatal flaw in the warrior is the word YAMAHA on the side

No way! Your bike is too easy in the corners, I prefer the death grip and physical work it takes to make mine handle, you keep the cheater bike

T - As we discussed, your bike does have that certain "Flex" Appeal that can only be found on a Harley in the corners

I am not a fan of the loud ass pipes and would want that exact looking bike as pictured - Are HD exhaust Slips or Fulls from a mod perspective?

They have both. Most of the stuff from Screamin eagle (harleys Hi performance division) are slipon. but much of the aftermarket is full systems.

If your Seriously looking, give Sam over at IL Harley in berwyn a call, tell him I sent you, he will hook you up with a great deal on one of those.

I have never really been even remotely interested in HD's but that is a nice looking ride - I do miss having a bike for 2 up and was never a fan of 2 up on standard sportbikes - The Bus was great for it though

Go take one for a test ride, judge it for yourself. Sam has let me take them out before, I liked them, I personally am a fan of their bigger bikes, but its all about personal preference. I think the Vrod is a big step for Harley with their Porsche designed water cooled motor

I've Wanted to post a few weeks ago when I got the bike, but works been nuts. I picked up my DX about 2 weeks ago. The same one as the pic, and I love it! People chase me down to find out what kind of bike it is. I got thhe vivid black, and 07 was the only year for that paint. I'm not a big fan of the flat black. I had to do some work to find a 07 DX as most were sold a long time ago. The only made 2000. Mine was 18,000 out the door. They list for 16, 600.
