Plus they allow your dark, moody side to come out.Well they work for me. I think the whole range of Dark models looks good. If I had the coin I'd get the Vrod Night Rod Special even though I think it's the stupidest name in motorcycling since the "Midnight Maxim".... I guess people from the midwest go for that kind of thing...(ahem)..at any rate the whole line-up looks good and follows the chrome don't get you home mantra some of us adhere to. I think they screwed the pooch dropping the Dyna Wide Glide model, that would have looked good with the all black motiff but maybe they'll bring it back after the Rocker C tanks.
