I Am Loving It !

Looking all summer at bikes, our heart was set on H-D, but we were keeping an open mind. We stopped by the local Kawasaki shop to see what they had to offer and looked at a couple of bikes they had out front. We were not really interested until we went inside the showroom. My wife wanted a red bike, and there it was! A beautiful brand new ‘07 Vulcan 900 Classic; and right beside it was a brand new black ‘05 Vulcan 2000. I knew when I sat on it that this bike was for me. Talk about attention to detail! The radiator is tucked up in the frame so well you hardly notice it there; the black motor cases are really cool; then you have the chrome rocker arm covers and heads. And the pipes are beautiful! He had them priced right to move ‘em out the door too!

Picking it up off the stand you really feel the weight of the bike. In the upright position it seems to be well balanced. Then you start it up and hear those pipes rumble to life and think to yourself, “Wow, these are stock!”

For a bike that weighs 820 pounds it is balanced well enough you can throw it into a turn with confidence.

First gear seems a little short, so I usually take off in second gear. The bike has plenty of torque, so that’s not a problem. Sitting on the bike the floorboards fit fine and I like the wide cruiser style handlebars. Braking is excellent. Twin rotors up front and one in the back will bring you down from speed in a hurry. Also, the lifters are self adjusting, so you don't have to take it to the shop for that!

Upgrades/Accessories:  Windshield and saddlebags; engine guards are next; then maybe a gel pad insert for those long trips.
