And it was a V-Rod... If it were a real Hardly they wouldn't have ever reached 100mph.

True however with no wind protection and a half cap helmet...you aint gonna go very fast very long. I think Vrods do bout 138-145 with a push of 150 when you hope for a good downwind.

Well, most Harleys aren't *intended* to be fast, so this (a) should be no surprise, and (b) should be no knock on a Harley.

That said, anyone who can't lose a patrol car in a chase on a V-Rod (or even a Sportster, for that matter) doesn't know shit about riding and probably wouldn't have gotten away if he was on a GSXR either. This story has nothing to do with the bike, and isn't really evidence of anything.

Its evidence of whatever you want it to be really. These are mine.

1. A chuckle
2. Get arrested for racing
3. A chuckle on the responses from others (yes yours made me laugh)

It must be late winter because the Harley bashing is picking up again around here.

Nah people are just so sensitive these days. It used to be "have a bad day at work?". Now its "have a bad day on the internet?".

That's what PORN is for...so people wont be so damn sensitive.

don't laugh about cop cruisers.

the new SHO interceptors that the RCMP are slowly getting out here could quite confidently catch my VFR if I was dumb enough to go straight.

It wouldn't be about going straight-the only place a motorcycle really has any advantage over something like the SHo would be in acceleration especially from slow speeds, so you would need lots of speedup and slow down, all the curves in the world likely wouldn't get you away from it unless your skill level and knowledge of the roads (or recklessness and lack of care for your life or others) were far superior to the SHO drivers.

I am pretty sure it has been shown time and time again that many performance cars can outrun performance bikes on the track, so it would only make sense that the car would have an even easier time on public roads, sans lane splitting or other heavy traffic obstructions where the smaller size would come into play.


Oh and I love that "slow motorcycles entering" sign right before the Harley dealer....lol
