What did the shop say you had it "repaired" at? Is this your first V-Twin? V-Twins have a unique feel. Do you feel it in legs thru your feet? When I ride my legs are relaxed so not understanding vibration hurting them. Do you feel vibration at all RPM, different speeds, different gear? Do you feel it in hands and butt? Is bike stock? If not, what changes? What's date code on tires? Do you feel vibration when applying brakes? Not trying to just throw a bunch of questions at you, but is the only way we might be able to narrow down the issue.

Never heard of a modern bike vibrating that bad. Not from an engine anyway. The old 6,000 rpm inline 4 cylinder 1100’s of the 80’s used to vibrate the hell out of your feet on the pegs but what you are describing is a first. Is there a chance it’s a wobble from a wheel or tire? You got a bike jack to lift the bike and spin the tires?

If not, here’s one on the cheap:1500 lb. Steel ATV/Motorcycle Lift
