is it a Vulcan 750 or not?

I was on the Hocking Hills Motorcycle Ranch web site today and looked at the motorcycle on the top of the site under where it says "saddle up and ride"
and next to where it says "all roads lead to the to the Hocking Hills Motorcycle Ranch" is a pic of a person riding a motorcycle.

for some reason I took a reallly good look at it tonight and to me it looks just like a Vulcan 750! does anyone else see it?

here's the link;

tell me what you think.

It very well may be.The way the photo is compressed/stretched it is hard to tell .The horns and the tach, speedo mounting looks right and it does have two chrome tings that look like they maybe the ears.

It is the exhaust that really makes me think you may be right .But a definite maybe is as far as I'll go with the distorted photo.Good eye though, I've seen that picture several times and never noticed any of that till you pointed that out.

^ You mean the Mickey Mouse ears? LOL!! Here's a picture of the VN750 from the front sitting still for comparison. Based on this, that is a VN750. Good eye dude, how the hell'd you see that? Compressed image and all. I'm impressed.

I call the factory mirrors "security mirrors" like they used to have in stores. Sitting on the bike with those huge things feels like you are being watched from anywhere. You could even see planes flying over your head. lol
