My bud at work has one of the new Vrods. Great looking bike but always seems to have problems. In our county the motorgrader operators are not always pros so when they blade our roads----------no bikes traffic for a while. Anyway my bud lays his down at about 5 mph in the mud. When his foot peg hit. IT CRACKED the frame. Six month old bike and just barly laid down.I told him old buddy, I think you need to look at the Metric side. Mine is 12 years old 30,000 plus, and the ony thing the frame needs is a little paint. I told him think about that the next time he is running it thur it's paces.
