If I sell (to get a yesteryear superbike)

Speaking of Vrod's, I was cruising around yesterday and went past F&S Harley Davidson in Dayton, which is the largest Harley dealer in Ohio. I swung in and parked the GPZ right up front where they could see it and proudly got off and walked in. Really nice folks. Didn't care one bit what I rode. Anyway, I sat on a couple Vrod's and man, they really feel nice to sit on. Wouldn't mind having one some day.

Funny discussion.  Believe or not my best friend actually Vintage raced an XS650 and wiped my butt once in awhile as I was riding a 76 Honda 750F, that was, a bit modified (CB1100F swingarm, GSRX1000 front end, etc.).  Nowadays I like my Vrod and the GPZ mostly but if I want something to really keep my attention the CBR600RR does that just fine!
