Consensus
Bikes bikes bikes..
No brag here just my dilemma.
I feel that we bike lovers need a different one for each day of the week.
I have a rather hoped up Road King and love it.
Last year I acquired a 2013 Honda F6B and have been rather disappointed. (blah blah blah )
Perhaps It will grow on me but it is anemic as I was expecting more .
Maybe I will keep it...perhaps trade it for a Vrod.
Either way-
What is the consensus on the best V Rod to acquire?
Knowing me it will end up looking like and being a bagger, if that helps sway the thought process.
Thoughts?

I've researched buying a V-rod a few times. The answer to "which version?" I've always found is the same as the one stated upthread - the Street Rod is the one to get.

That engine looks huge, could they have put it in a tighter/sportier frame? Seems like they should have made some kind of effort to recoup all the $$$ the put into developing that engine.

Sportster. That's where it's at. Hop one up and try to get the weight down to 600lbs. Then you're moving

BTDT.
I had Iron Head, a double plug, ported polished, 1o.5-1 , swiss cheese wheels (T&O) rode from coast to coast and most states in between.
About 1976-7
Great bike but was a flexible flyer in the turns.

Ha. Not a Harley exclusive in the corners. Early BMW's known as rubber cows.

Get an R6 for going around corners...

(You can even do that funny steering voodoo of yours on one)

Believe it or not - My Road king with all new rear swing arm bushings and an aftermarket swingarm stabilizer is the most stable platform for a big bike i have ever been on.
I do not feel the tar snakes, or get a whip from road grooves.
My F6B is much more sensitive to all the above.
The road king is here to stay.

It took Porsche to help get Harley an engine that runs properly
