Most folks who see the bike like it. Some folks believe it or not don't even 
realize it's a V-Rod. I think a lot of folks think of the original anodized 
aluminium looking bikes from the early years.

So far I have had only a few issues with HD riders and they weren't even 
from airheads. I knew a guy that went from never been on a bike at age 35 
and somehow by age 38 was a die hard 'airhead' and hated anything that 
wasn't his idea of a true Harley. Hell I have been riding bikes since I was 
12, got my license and first bike at 17 and it's now close to 30 years later 
so a few tools like this guy don't mean anything to me.

If you get a chance to take one on a test ride, I would do it.

I'm happy with both the V-Rod and the GPz...and both are the perfect
