Where is the passenger supposed to put its ass?

I'd be be really happy with that V-4 V-Max if it had significantly more forward controls and comfortable seat for 2-up riding and accommodations for bags, sissy bar, etc. I could live with 165 hp at 9100 rpm.

The V-Rod has all that, although still not very comfortable. You can't feel the revs when you wind it out and it does 0-60 in under 3.5.

Kinda like being a construction worker and swapping your work van for a porche 911 isn't it?

I thought the Vmax was 200HP?

All I have to say on the subject is that you'd have to run like hell to give me any motorcycle but a Triumph. I love them above all bikes, and when a Harley rider has a comment, my response is always the same, to call them a "Triumph wanna-be."

I, for one, wish I had enough money to own my Storm and all of these other bikes. I bet they are all a blast to ride and each has pro's and con's. To each their own.....if every person in the world only liked one type of bike, there would be no variety and nothing to set apart one bike from another.
