I also ride 99% for recreation. I like both twisties and interstate highways, for different reasons. Twisty roads take a lot more effort, but are very fun and entertaining. One of the reasons I love the Vulcan 750 is it is a comfortable cruiser type bike that handles curvy roads really good.
But, I also like long straight stretches of interstate highway, where you can just kick back, relax, and cruise. This is especially true if it is a highway you are not familiar with. I have ridden over a thousand miles at a time on interstate highways many times, and have ridden cross country many times, over several days, and, a few times, over a couple of weeks. I love the "Easy Rider" style of riding, going to new places and seeing new things. What many riders call "touring". Most of my 400,000 plus miles have been on interstate highways. This is also something the Vulcan 750 does very well.
A Ninja would be better for the twisties, and a Goldwing would be better for long cross country trips, but the Vulcan 750 is more than acceptable at either. Jerry
