Default My 2011 V-rod Muscle

Since selling my TBSS, I haven't been very active on TBSSowners or TCG. My 2000 Yukon is kind of boring so I'll post about my bike. I purchased my VRSCF early last summer, put about 2500 miles on it between then and fall as it became my DD since I got 38 - 40 mpg. Wound up bending and breaking a rim, tearing off the radiator shroud, and losing caliper covers after hitting a deep seam in the road on I-55 SB @ I-355 exit. So the bike was down for some time between fall and winter. So I'm proud to have it up and running as of last week. I replaced all necessary parts myself after the accident and did some mods in the mean time. Mods include Tab Slip-ons with 2" baffles, Arnott air ride, Topless airbox, Amsoil High Flow airfilter, and SE race tuner via Heritage HD in Lisle. HD was able to pull 117.68 WHP and 84.59 WTQ out. I was told this bike stock is usually about 109WHP and 79WTQ stock.


The seam/pothole.

The rim.

Sorry for the cell phone pics. I'll prob be swinging around here more now.

Thanks, I have only seen 1 other black vrscf in the area. Unfortunately the vrscf only took off in Australia as the DX was a better seller here in the states. I couldn't wait to get back on the road, it was depressing seeing my bike disabled in the garage for months.

Would love to have a V Rod as a second cruiser bike. That or a Honda Fury.

The VROD Muscle is pretty sick. I sat on one at the motorcycle show this year. For the most part it felt pretty much like my 2005 "B" VROD. The one thing I do like over mine was the seat and the larger back tire. Without major changes I have a 200 rear tire, biggest without changing shit. The seat on the muscle is much more comfy too.
I have pretty much the same mods excpet the CFR pipe on mine.

Yeah, I'm not a fan of the fury but to each his own.

Nice, theres guys fitting a 280 on the muslce rear without mods. sounds a little overboard to me I think the biggest I will go is 260 mm.

The fury is a hot cruiser for sure. I can't believe a company like Honda actually made it.

Holy old thread revival.

That hole you posted was right after the lemont road overpass wasn't it? I get on right there and I'd always remind myself to stay out of the hammer lane until after that point.
