I think I have decided what I want for my next motorcycle

I have searched all the sites, compared specs, read reviews. I have even had a chance to ride a few of them. After looking around, I think my next bike is going to be a 2nd Vulcan 750. I keep coming back to it for comfort, power, handling. Some other bikes might be better in 1 or 2 categories, but they usually sacrifice comfort. And for me, comfort is a huge issue. I ride daily, not just for kicks on weekends.

Anyone else here have 2 Vulcan 750s? Did you try and do something different with the 2nd one?

My 2nd bike is a Honda GL500. I think it's more comfortable than my 750. I have short legs and the GL fits my legs perfectly. The suspension is smoother to.

Hell yeah! A 93' and a 01'. The 93' is getting customized and the 01' is staying as factory as possible with minor mods for longer rides. I have checked other bikes but being vertically challenged I have a problem reaching the forward controls. IF I had the money to spend ($20,000) a Victory Hammer with a stage 8 kit would be my hot rod.
