I am NOT sure what drugs the engineers were on when they LOOKED at the front end and let it roll out with amber TS but they must have got one heck of a good deal and laugh out of it. However, you can easily remedy this for about 160 bucks replacing BOZO's hair (the amber lens) with clear international Lens and amber bulbs or even switchbacks that run white and signal amber (120 bucks for bulbs).
As far as the geriatric riding the two wheeled Winnebago??? Com'on Bandit, a little harsh don't you think??? hehehehehe
I have got to admit I didn't see myself riding one at first either however, once you break free from your vision of tradition and look at the lines of the VV not just from the front but from the saddle as well I don't see how you can't at least appreciate the design of the bike itself when keeping in mind the handling and wind managment. Don't get me wrong, I still own my TC (had her out Friday ripping up some pavement) and very much enjoy the look and feel of the traditional ride. I very much like the looks of the HD Road Glide and can understand how Bandit got drawn into the dark side by that ride as well.
In the end, I became very fond of the looks of the VV and yes, get all the comments "Mission control, we have an unidentified space craft landing" blah bla blah... Yuk it up boys and girls, have your fun. 1800ccs of pure fun that handles like a light cruiser and manages the wind better than my buddies GW while providing a ride that far supercedes anything I have been on and making 45+mpg... Laugh all you want, Im not afraid of change and have no problem yukking it up with you... It is a UNIQUE looking ride and I am not ashamed to own it...If I wanted to be part of the pack, I would have bought an XCT or (at one time) a HD Ultra or Road Glide. BTW, Bandit I am NOT saying you joined the HD propaganda Pack, you actually researched the bike that best fit you.. So, I consider you a VIC rider on a HD... hehehehe Temporarily of course..
My only complaint is it takes way to long to stop for gas answering all the questions... :-)
