Vrod scripted shifter rod

by Editor on 05/28/17

This V-Rod shifter rod was tough to find, they have been a discontinued item and is now obsolete. I had the folks at Trev Deeley Harley Davidson run the part number and there were none in Canada. I then called an HD dealer in the States and they checked the USA computer system and had the same results...
I made several posting on a Vrod Facebook group with no luck.... Then out of the blue I got a message from a gentlemen that said he had one on his bike and would take it off and sell it to me if I wanted. Wow, how cool is that!!!!
Thank you Joe, it's on our camera bike and it's very much appreciated!!!

2017 HARLEY-DAVIDSON FLHR ROAD KING at TDMC Customs

by Editor on 05/25/17

The team at TDMC Customs at Trev Deeley Motorcycles in Vancouver knocks another one out of the park with their latest bike build!!!

This 2017 HARLEY-DAVIDSON FLHR ROAD KING

With this timeless combination of style and touring function you don't just ride through the landscape, you're the most majestic part of the scenery.
Even your eyes can't stop wandering on this machine.

2017 harley davidson road king

The Road King is where stripped down, nostalgic style meets the performance and versatility of a modern Harley-Davidson touring machine. The Hiawatha headlamp and nacelle were born in the 1960's, when chrome ruled the streets. But the power of the all-new Milwaukee-Eight 107 engine brings it all into the here and now in a hurry. The all-new double bending valve front suspension and rear emulsion shocks put you in control for a plush ride. With cast aluminum Impeller wheels and one-touch opening saddlebags, this is the timeless classic built for today.

by Editor on 05/03/17

The Ride Safe patch: 

"May all your rides be safe & scenic, Filled with blue skies & winding roads"

When designing this patch it was very important to us to be respectful to all the MC and RC Clubs.

We spent a lot of time going through a number of colour combinations and decided on going with a colour pallet similar to the traditional Harley-Davidson logo. Orange text and border to emphasize the Ride Safe message, and VRIDETV in a dark grey to blend into the black background.

RIDE SAFE PATCH and STICKER

The Ride Safe patch is free with every $10 donation, the donations will go towards the rising cost of operating expenses and the growth and development of Vridetv.

The Ride Safe sticker is free with every $5 donation.
The donations will go towards the rising cost of operating expenses and the growth and development of Vridetv. Our goal is to continue keeping our entire website free for our viewers : )
