Thanks for the welcomes,The bike is black,so am adding a few red highlights,will post some pics when its done,should be back on the road by end of the week.I sold the V rod for various reasons,I have had it from new for around 6 years,and as you can see from the pic it is far from standard,all the modifications and there are many were done by myself,and I had run out of things to change,I have had 7 Harleys prior to the v rod and customised them all,I have also owned numerous other bikes none were left standard,so it was time to move on to new pastures.But probably the main reason was the weight of the Vrod,I am now 66 and my riding has changed in the last year,prior to that the bike was me and the wives means of transport on Holidays/vacations,touring all over europe 2 up.But last year bought a motorhome and trailer and now tow the bike on our travels,but use it for exploring when we get there,and getting the vrod on and off the trailer was a bit of an ordeal (nearly 700lbs) so I wanted something lighter but had to be interesting, considered a Ducati monster but sat on the Triumph and it felt just right.So there you have it
