My next-door neighbor back in Brooklyn owned a 2002 Harley-Davidson V-Rod. He parked it in front of his Bushwick apartment building on the sidewalk. It had a brushed, anodized aluminum tank, solid rims and fenders with plenty of chrome. It was b-e-a-u-t-i-f-u-l.
Sadly, he also had some chrome stick-on skulls from Pep Boys on it that killed the overall look, but it still looked mean. I wanted to ride that bike bad.
The 1,130cc V-Twin Revolution, V-Rod had an extended front end, a hot, curvy exhaust and fat rear tire that make it look like a dragster. It was designed to go very fast in a straight line and it was also the first liquid cooled, production motorcycle from Harley.
