I rode motorcycles way back in my youth but eventually got away from them. Still, whenever I see one, I always look. Last Friday I went to the Minnesota State Fair. There a local dealer was displaying three dozen or Harleys. One of the first I looked at - something called a VRod - sported a list price of $39,990! Although it was a V-Twin and had a Harley emblem on it, it really didn't look like a traditional Harley. The frame tubes were larger and painted a light grey instead of black, and each cylinder had its own exhaust system. What in the world is there about this motorcycle, or any non-racing motorcycle, that could make it worth nearly $40G? This particular bike was not tricked out - it was rather plain - and so accessories were not bumping the price. I suspect it has something to do with this "VRod" thing, but come on - this is a motorcycle and it only had two cylinders.
