"Not really bike-related, but a general disdain towards the model from many dealers, from the sales floor to the parts counter. HD builds a modern bike with what could be an actual performance engine, and the dealers don't seem to care and a year in there is a serious lack of internal modification support. Look at the other bikes, which have options for different tanks, different riding positions, etc."
This is not all that surprising, the VRods were (and sometimes still are) not well accepted when they were introduced & that was nearly 15 years ago.
There are even some narrow minded people who refer to mid 80s Evo engines as "modern crap". It might take a few years before the range of accessories from HD are as vast as what you can get for a Vrod.
