Sold my Vulcan... Thanks for the help and memories!

It is with deepest regret that I tell you, I sold my Vulcan and bought a 1995 Intruder VS800... However, I have a feeling I'll be back on a Vulcan sometime "down the road". I have no desire to ride anything bigger than an 800 and I love 80's and 90's styled foreign bikes. Thanks to everyone for the input and help over the past year. You made owning my first bike a great experience. If anyone is interested I'll place pics of the Intruder.

oh no! we lost another one! I wouldnt mind seeing some pics of the intruder, I really like the old ones, mid 80's of course they are pretty similar to our vulcan. I actually seen a honda interceptor the other day and was like holy crap, haven't seen one of them in many years, they were popular bout the same time the ninja came to be!

Did you have to sell it? Couldnt you have kept it and just bought your intruder and have two bikes? lol Anywa i hope you and any others that sell their vn750s recommend this site and forum to the new owners. I mean just tell them about the site and forum and all the good help, mods, and more the can get from this forum community. We dont really want to lose u as a member but we can still keep your bike a member with its new owner.
peace

Ride the 750 to work. Give it to your wife/gf. Your son or newphew.
