Kind of interesting sidebar to all of this. Seems that CycleVisions who is currently marketing a Road Glide set-up for V-Rods has some patents on it that H-D needs to obtain. Like I've said before, I believe we won't see anything til 08, but the people I know in the business are saying 07. We'll see.

I stopped by to see my buddie Randy at CycleVisions today.  While I was there,  I looked at and sat on the V-Rog Road Glide that he has on his shop floor.  I have to admit,  It looks cool as hell,  but as is the problem with the V-Rod in general (at least for US big guys,  the frame will need a little more room as well as the controls).  I think if you put that motor in a bagger frame,  gave it a little more low end torque....the MoCo would have a winner.
    Don't get me wrong.....I'm still a purist....American bikes should remain air cooler, pushrod V-Twins.....But if Uncle Sam intends on ramming this up our...well you know where....it's not a bad solution (they're gonna have to pry my air cooled, pushrod V from my cold dead fingers though)....

I suspect they will go oil cooled first, and it can be done without radically changing the appearance , a few manufacturers put it in the frame.

Every year same question - fingers crossed they will turn it into a four banger for more torque - two V's sidebyside - that would rock!
