People kept asking questions at stop lights on my way home from work the other day. "what model is that?" even had one guy ask me "does that thing have two speedometers?" Ive had questions about the bike before, but never this much. Although I havent had it out that much since I dropped it 2", must just make it stand out that much more :dontknow:.

If you ride the "9" you have to get used to people staring and asking questions because it looks different (and better) than all the harleys! :bigthumbsup:

It's surprising how some people still don't know what it is, or never heard of it, or thinks that Suzuki only makes sport bikes. I still get a kick out of it though:a18:

the most common question I get is
"is it custom?"
... no it's about 95% stock
"you're kidding?!?"
nope:bigthumbsup:

you get used to it, it NEVER gets old. the looks that we got (2 07LE's and 1 08 LE) through Colorado and Utah on the way to Vegas were even better:bigthumbsup:

I had a guy, sitting on a Vrod, argue that my bike was a customized Vrod. He had seen all of the parts in catalogs and had thought about putting his together that way.

I argued for a little while, until I could tell I was not getting anywhere, so I agreed it was a Vrod without a single stock Vrod part.

:agree: Had a 50 something year old dude taking pics on his camera phone & asking me questions about mine while I was filling up at a gas station. Said he used to have a Harley a year ago but had to sell it to get a new 4X4 pickup truck. :eek:

I wonder how the guys figured the 9 was a vrod when the rod is so puny compared to the 9? It simply amazes me how ill informed so many people are...
