Be ready for the insurance if you build it...usually a huge money loss too. The kit bikes are piles of shit...need to spend about 30k to build anything decent and then insurance will cost you about 3k/year at 21 years old. Expect to get a fair share of shit from bikers if you buy a V-Rod. The HOG crowd will kiss your ass but the real riders will think you're a queer. For your first bike I would recommend picking up a nice used softail or dyna. Ride it for a year and then decide if you want something different.RFC said:If you want to take long trips get a bagger,has lots of storage.If you want a short touring bike a VROD or DYNA,If you want a bar hopper and somethin' to throw the ol' lady on the bitch pad build your own

HD "Hundred Dollars" seems like it doesn't matter what you go in for.Bob Curran said:With this racing schedule I keep, about 2-3 times a summer i rent one for the weekend. This also gives you a chance to try differnet models. personal favorite is the Ultra electra glide, you can call me old, but when you want to take a short trip, it gives you somewhere to put the shit. It's all about comfort for Mrs Squarepants and myself. also something with a windshield unless you enjoy eating bugs. Road King would be the next on the list. before you call me a wanne be but think about it, $450 for the weekend x 3 $1350 a year, versus Insurance, maintenance, storage, and all that chrome, pipes, fringe, performance parts (cuz you know you want to go faster than the other harley next to you) you will buy to make yours unique. not to mention it's a Harley so they break
that's bullshit......they don't break anymore than any other bike....less usually. My dad had 120k on his 88 Springer before he ever pulled a rocker cover. What other bikes do you frequently see with 100k+ miles on 'em.....BMW's. But to have a BMW you've gotta be a weird phucker.Bob Curran said:not to mention it's a Harley so they break
