V and H was great in the 80s an 90s, they became who they were from the base of GS1100's and GPZ1000's, but from 2k on they dissed the metric market and went solley harley/buell, ignoring their loyal customers to cater to the deep pockets of the cruser/youppie croud. For that reason, I turn my back on Vance and Hindes like they turne their backs on me.
One last point on my cynical rant.... Muzzy stayed loyal to Kawasaki, cheers to them, Yosh to Suzuki, kudos to them, and Dale Walker to the mighty VMax, way to go down with the ship. Loyalty at the corporate level reideates to loyalty in customers. Vance and Hindes made their bed (vrod bed) and they need to lie in it.
Go with Byron and Terrie if you need to but they only want your money, they have no intrest in your Z.
