Interesting review. The Victory is really looking good, not like a clone anymore. I wonder when/if Harley will offer a real touring version of the V-Rod? The feet-forward seating position doesn't appeal to me, but I like it otherwise.
I'd agree. If you're churning out mass mileage, the V-Rod ain't your bike, if only for fuel capacity reasons. However, if you're coming from the point of view of someone who isn't going to Iron Butt it across country and just wants enough "tourability" to cover weekend distances, then the V-Rod's sippy cup-sized tank shouldn't stop you from considering it as a capable tool for the task at hand.
I had an odd experience with the Glide during my return from the Sierras.
I was getting really bad fuel injection surging. At first I thought it was because I was riding next to my friend's BMW! Then it started popping and backfiring kinda like your Shovelhead.
At the next gas stop I removed the seat to see if my Revtech DFO had a loose connection. What I found was that the unit (which was velcroed to the frame backbone just below the fuel tank) had slid down due to heat or vibration or both, and was resting right near the battery. I pulled the unit off, cleaned the frame backbone and re-stuck it in its proper place.
The Glide ran perfectly the rest of the way home.
So was it heat from the battery or the magnetic field that was jacking me up? Or we could just blame it on riding in close proximity to a BMW Boxer!
Now on the topic of trolling for babes in Santa Maria. Biker events usually aren't very good for babe-trolling. How many hot chicks show up to biker events by themselves? Mix in the retirement community of Santa Maria and you've got yourself one long, lonely night.
It sounds like you had no need for your "capable tool for the task at hand."
Yeah, the utter and complete lack of need for my "tool" at the Santa Maria gig is a whole sordid tale unto itself. I've been feeling a little self-conscious about turning all of my stories into Harlequin romance novels gone bad though, but next time you're in SaMo again, we'll talk.
Re: Add a Laser Jammer and a Radar detector (Radar/Laser for Dummies continued)
I believe the post regarding jammers was from Sean. I only mentioned numbskulls like yourself believe everything they see printed on a webpage which would explain your current link to a propagandist like Micheal Moore.
What a lost little puppy you are, glomming onto a new "hero" every day.
Last weekend's top film, Michael Moore's ``Fahrenheit 9/11,'' fell to second place with $21 million over the four-day weekend, raising its total to $60.1 million. The film, Moore's assault on President Bush's response to the Sept. 11 attacks, could become the first documentary ever to top $100 million.
