You have to admit; the VN750 is an odd bike.... but that's what I like about it.
An interesting review of the '92 Vulcan 750:

Ugly? They say beauty is in the eye of the beholder, guess the dik that wrote that up just had no sence of adventure. Ugly is also a point of style... because it stands out from the norm. Anytime I hear someone say the "styling of the Vulcan is dated"...I just laugh and ask why folks like 57 chevy's and pugs. You have to be pretty cool to own a "ugly" bike, and not believe in trends.

So Fuk this guy, the Vulcan 750 is beautiful.

I've never found a motor cycle I couldn't find something to like about it.Even if it is just the fact that has two wheels and a motor,I will say that I have always thought that the early eighties bikes and not just the cruisers looked like they were designed by committee and it took the people that rode them to correct the factory compromises, and make what they should be out of them.




If you see it on my bike I did it

I can always see something cool in any bike. Sometimes it's just under a ton of extra crap slapped all over it. I have to agree on the boat-tail Harleys though, wtf?
