OMG What a trip 1000mi....1000 togo

I took the ole vulcan on a marathone the last couple of days... I drove from seattle wa to santa cruz ca all on the coast... over 1000 miles... She made it no real hicups...
things i noticed ...
1low speed wobble ... she doesnt wobble when im holdin firmly on the bars ot higher speeds the wobble goes away

2. i cooked the motor real well still have that lil oil leak but didnt realize the temp guage wasnt workin until about 8 hrs of ridin i could boil water off the case... toped her off and finished the rest of the trip.. gonna assess the situation later but she has got to get me home this weekend... (after i put water in her the oil leak went back to the little drip instead of the pool of oil every fill up...

3. anyone wanna give me a mustang seat?

about 42mpg

i love my bike even though i dont want to get on her for a few days... !!

Low speed wobble comes from you being tired. My best guess.
I bet that was a lot of fun.
I would like to do that some time.

From that first pic I see you made some more mods and changed the old vulcans color scheme to black and orange. <BG> Aren`t those Harley colors?
