A pretty reliable source said that the big news at the dealer show this year was the arrival of the XR1200 in the U.S. next year and these two new models:

Hmmm... that "Muscle" is the first V-Rod that's really done anything for me.

I'd like to see mid-mount controls, ala the street rod, & we'd be talkin! And a factory trike? :eek2: And the XR to the US!! :clap: :clap: :clap:

More importantly, what's up with all these motorcycle posts on TWT? Isn't there some global catastrophe to worry about, moral deficiency to correct, or naughty words to misspell before we actually talk about bikes?

I'd prefer midmounts as well.

I suppose if they made the seat a little taller. Otherwise, you'd have heel marks on your butt.

Yep, I want to get some sort of touring option from the vrod.

A lot of the 09's are already up on H-D's website....I didn't see any discernible changes on the FXDF.

That Muscle Rod looks pretty darn cool (esp. from the rear 3/4 angle), but I'd also prefer mid-mount controls. I like the Street Rod, and wish they wouldn't have killed it so quickly!

As for the trike, I'd take a Can-Am Spyder over H-D's one anyday.

I agree, but I have a feeling that H-D will still sell a buttload of those Tri-Glides.....especially if the price of a "designed from the ground up factory H-D trike" is comparable to(or most likely better than) that of a converted Ultra Classic.

That Tri-Glide is a nice looking trike. :thumb:

Not so hot on the Muscle Rod, looks too much like the M109R :yawn:

Now, if the XR shows up, I may have to go arrange a test ride :drool:

I'd like to ride the XR-1200 too. That V-Rod thing doesn't do it for me. The Trike looks good if you're into that sort of thing.

Given the (still) grossly overinflated prices on Harleys, and the fact that Joe schmo's trikes-r-us charges nearly 35k for a conversion, can anyone imagine that this not-a-motorcycle would be any under 50k? Let's see, how can I put this...PASS!

Tri-Glide MSRP $29,999 (http://www.autoblog.com/2008/07/23/harley-davidson-launches-new-2009-tri-glide-ultra-classic/).

I'd say a whole bunch of conversion folks just got nervous.

Yep, but for the same money you could run down and get a 200 hp '09 VMax.

With the track spankings to be delivered by Mr. Max to the VRod, HD should have left the word "muscle" off, IMO.

Euro V-Rod would probably have been more accurate.

Metro V-Rod would probably have been more accurate.

For 30K I could get his and her's in something Italian....
