Newbie w/question ('99 Vulcan)
Newbie with first post here...
I recently passed the Rider Safety Course and got my motorcycle license. I'm now looking into getting a '99 Vulcan Classic (750cc) as my first bike. It has just about 10,000 miles on it, with a few mods. The owner's asking $3,400.
Some people say that the bike may be too big (considering that I learned on a 125cc), while others say that I'll grow right into it with the proper training. I'm 5'10', 178 lbs.
A guy on another forum was nice enough to tell me that before he got his Suzuki M50, he was looking into a VN 750 but changed his mind because of the "notorious problems with their battery and voltage regulator...VR in a bad spot which causes overheating..." If any of you can clear this up for my specific model, I'd appreciate it.
Otherwise, I look forward to any comments you may have.
