Well guys...said goodbye to 2 ol' girls today

not that I have not had fun with them and have greatly enjoyed their company, but nonetheless we parted ways today...

I will miss them...her quirky throttle response at low idle and the little lean pop I get at idle when playing with the throttle...

the others supercharger whine and tire bustin' horsepower...

however, I did not walk away empty handed...

took home an 06 Harley Davidson Screamin' Eagle VRod

I hope you guys don't turn your back on me...it was a financial move and had to do it to better the household...still love to be here!!!!!

ride is still on for Oct 7th, too

Man, your other bike must have been REALLY expensive if buying a Screaming Eagle V-Rod was a good financial decision. Stick around.

Hehe.. Don't care what ya ride bro, so long as you're not going to turn into on of those "trademarked-out" HD riders.. you know the ones I mean.. Every HD leather accessory money can buy, look at you like you're not worthy of being in their presence 'cause you don't ride a HD.. Then again, if you got a V-Rod they will likely do that to you since its really a Porche with an HD badge on it.. :bigthumbsup: :joke:

Cool, but I'm still a bit curious as to how selling a $12K bike and buying a $28K bike makes financial sense. There had to be a reason you preferred the V-Rod over the 109 other than money. Am I right?

no, I had negative equity in the 03 Cobra and a big payment (45k price tag) and had to trade the 109 (had positive equity in her) to offset the negative equity and both debts...need a bike with comparable performance and high dollar enough to absorb the bad equity

make sense

Well, I have to be honest...the screamin' eagle is a bit faster than the 109...a little higher reving too..9k rpm redline...I got to say for a Harley it is extremely smooth...no clunking when shifting...heck I even shifter without the clutch and the bike didn't buck or anything...again though, kudos to suzuki...it is being spoken about in the same sentence as a 26k dollar performance bike!!

109's forever

I will miss the gas mileage though...I was getting 54-56mpg out of the ol girl

Did you say you were getting 54 to 56 miles per gallon with the 109? I am lucky to get 25 per gallon are ya sure it was running on both cyd.No wonder the rod is a little quicker.
