    After being disappointed in my 2002, this one has been great.

    Very much so thanks mate. I love looking at it, love riding it and generally like it more each day. Money well spent I reckon.

    Cheers

    Do yourself a favor. Resist the urge to radically change it. At least 6 months of riding time so you'll get to know the bike. Then your money will be well spent. Unless it's a comfort thing. The suspension will break in and become more compliant. Keep an eye on tire pressures too. Experiment a bit with them a few PSI in both directions.

    At the first service go with the heavier weight trans oil. It's worth it. Don't know what brands you have access to but a 75-140 weight synthetic gear is what I've been running. And I'd stick with the Harley oil filters too. Oil? Your choice there but I'd recommend staying synthetic there too.

    Thanks for the advice. I can't see too many changes. Normally when I get a bike it's all about the seat, handlebars, exhaust, carby etc etc. I was fortunate enough to have the money to have the exhaust, cam etc fitted at the dealer and covered by warranty from new but the rest of the bike I am happy with. Still a way off the 1st service so I will take on board your oil advice and see what the dealer has/recommends.
    And since it's a picture thread, it would be rude not to :D

    Went to the H-D Museum in Milwaukee today and saw these 6 VR1000 Engines up in the restoration shop on the 3rd floor...what a thrilling sight! I can't identify the natural cast engines to the right of the VRs.

    VRod. One with three allens on the cam cover appears to be a Nova from here.

    You don't wanna see my bike if that bothers you.

    EDIT: do your self a favor and find some anti corrosive spray like BoeShield/ACF-50 and apply to the wheels alloy surfaces.

    Still one of my favorite pics. Proof that you can't make it to Deadhorse on a big Harley. :D

    At first glance I cringed at the red wheels, but after looking at it for thirty seconds or so I think it's beautiful and well done which is saying something because I'm not usually a fan of red. Enjoy the new ride.

    That was my first thought when I saw the wheels too. Then I was thinking that this bike could be a bit unique and I started to like them more. It's the first big twin I've owned and I'm excited to get familiar with it.:ricky
