    I've been riding with the same couple of guys for years. One buddy rides a Harley Street bob 96CI and the other on a Victory Vegas Jackpot 106CI. I've been riding a V-Star 650 until my recent acquisition of my Raider.

    For the sake of making this easy I will just refer to my buddies as either Harley or Victory. I bought my Raider in February of 09. I have been absolutely meticulous about following the engine wear in instructions. Both of my buddies have been trying to coax me into racing them trying to prove their bikes are better.

    Raider VS Harley.
    My bike just turned over 1500 miles. I was on a ride with my Harley friend and at every stop light or sign he would pull up and rev his engine. When the light turn green he was off then he would laugh and say he was so fast. When we got to the next light I told him that I was going to do this once so he better make the best of it. When the Light turned green I punched my accelerator. He was so far back when I slowed down it made me laugh. I asked him if he even was even trying, all he could say was "Your bike is so fast".

    Raider VS Victory.
    I should have rubbed this in a little more but I was being nice. My Victory buddy is the kind of guy that always has the best stuff he is always better then than the next guy. Anyway we both stopped at a red light and he asked me if I was up to a little race. When the light turned green we were both off, now I will admit that he was much closer to me than my Harley buddy but I still beat him enough that I doubt he will ever race me again.

    All I can say is HAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHA

    The first year I had my Raider, people on the road at stop lights were asking me what it was. Now they are asking "That's the Raider isn't it?" I rode next to a man and woman, each on a Honda Shadow and Yamaha Virago, respectively. I heard the gentleman loudly proclaim "RAIDER!" The legend is being born

    I've beaten 3 vrods with mine. Two of the guys don't talk to me much anymore. They weren't too happy.

    Great story.

    I had a pack of Harleys pull up and park next to me at a cafe. Before going in one of the guys told all his buddies how fast the Raider is. We came out about the same time and they waited for me to start my bike first cause they wanted to hear it. I've got the Big Radius so it sounds good.

    Raider vs V-Rod? What world are you from? Raider is a V-Twin pushrod engine, V-Rod is a V-4 watercooled engine. The two bikes have nothing similar except a seat handlebar and two wheels.

    Now of course the Raider is still gonna smoke a V-Rod...but a V-Rod needs to run a comparable V-4 Star bike,...hmmmmm.....Maybe a V-Max!

    But that would just be mean and outright dirty...

    The V-Max will smoke a V-Rod........ like it's standing still.

    Ask me how I know!.......heheheheheheh!

    V-Rod is a v-twin....I had a brain fart.....large one too.

    V-ROD is a 1250 cc water cooled v-twin not a v-4, check cycle world test raider is faster than a v-rod in quarter, m-109 zuk is faster than a raider in a quarter BARELY!!!!

    I ran a M109R with my raider with just cobra slashdowns and i pulled ever so slightly away from him it really depends on the driver.
