Saw your V-Rod and it's very nice too... funny about your "most people have a sportbike" comment - as a sportbike guy I've always liked the V-Rod of all the Harley bikes the best - I always said if I got a Harley the V-Rod would be the one I'd get.

Then Ducati came out with the Diavel and, well, that decision was all over

Problem here in Florida is getting a hard core sportbike feels like a waste, there are no corners anywhere... just freeway onramps and the track. OK there are maybe 3 corners but not more!

For a streetbike, I wanted something suitable for Florida - something that kicks ass in a straight line, since straight line roads are all we basically have.

Hence the K1200R and Diavel ... your V-Rod makes perfect sense down here too. I have nothing to prove to anyone anymore but my Diavel ain't slow either
