New Vulcan 750 owner

I just bought a 1992 VN750. This is the first cruiser style bike I've owned. I rode mostly dirt bikes and dual sports before. I think I'm really going to like it. I'm looking forward to lots of riding this year on the Vulcan. Glad I found a site that is dedicated to these bikes!

Here is a picture of my bike.

Nice looking scoot... the 92 was the fastest year for the VN750, but the blue ones are a little slower than the blue/silver

Don't believe everyting slim tells you; the black 89's are the fastest! Welcome to the forum, you've got a good bike, even if it is a little slow.

I'm keepin' all the left over parts. I'm gonna use 'em to build another bike!

no no, I'm pretty sure the Blue silver ones are the fastest! And yep I KNOW for sure the 92's are the fastest

On a side note, wish mine looked as good as yours, nice bike.

Sweet! That one looks like it's ready to ride. Welcome to the group.
You've got hours and hours of reading to do when you're not riding. Check out the Verses and you'll want to check and lube your splines. Enjoy the bike and your new home!

Welcome to the forum, Nearma12. You'll be amazed how well the VN750 handles. Find some twisty roads and cut loose! That bike was MADE to ride tight roads. Don't be surprised if you see the sportsbikes disappearing behind you.

The journey is the destination.

Welcome to the Vulcan madness Nearma12. I hate to disappoint you and all these guys, but the `91`s with Cosmic Splendor Red and Maroon colors are clearly the fastest. Just look at the name, "Cosmic." It`s so fast that it is right out of this world!! LOL

Thanks for all the replies. I just spent $160 to get it legal yesterday. (Thanks a lot State of Illinois) I took it out for my first ride and I love it. Plenty of power, pretty easy to handle, and runs great. However, I now need a new speedometer cable. Mine gave out while a I was riding. No big deal though.



The 92 VN750 may or may not be the fastest 750, but it smokes my friends 01 Vulcan 800 Classic!!

you will notivce that the vn750 will smoke a lot of bigger bikes, I was reading on another forum a few days ago where a guy was asking for info on the vn750 (I sent him here of course), and a member told how he was riding his large souped up HD and some guy on a VN750 blew by him and all he saw was tail lights dissapeering in the distance... he caught up to the bike about 50 miles down the interstate at a gas station, and they ended up riding for a few hundred miles together, and every chance the little VN got, he would smoke that Harley.
