This bike is a special find.

It is one of the first few model years of this bike, so it should be equipped with the factory self-cancelling turn signals (assuming this feature remains functional on the bike).

Still looks like the bike could use some more TLC, though...

This bike has obviously had a hard life prior to your purchase. Take good care of her--she is the last of her kind.....

You don't say what part of Va you are in, but nonetheless, I envy you. Va has some really great riding in it, including the Blue Ridge Pkwy and Skyline Drive. It's great country for riding a cruiser like the Vulcan (and much, much better than south Ga or north Fl I might add!).....

Some of your subsequent threads should have some killer photos (or even videos?) from some of your future rides.....

Enlighten me, what does TLC stand for? and The self canceling turn signals DO work, just fine. and yes, there are some great roads up here.

Neat looking older bike.

I hated the standard foot pegs, I ordered the floorboards that attach right to the existing footpegs. Got them for 80.00 at www.chadsbike.com. Huge difference I can now ride in comfort.
On my vn750 I added a gel pad that helps alot on long trips, anything over 100 miles and you feel like someone kicked you in the butt a million times.

I'll give it a try, someone may have to correct me as I have only been doin it for a short while...
When you have your post or reply open you'll see a small yellow square with what appears to be a mountain in it over the top of the post/reply, click on that and a block will open for you to put the URL in... I don't know what all that means bit I get my IMG code from my image hosting site which in my case is PhotoBucket...
I enter that and click ok and it goes in my post/reply, but sometimes it has a extra bit in front and behind that needs to be deleted before the image will show... Sorry about the sorry explaination, but I am not the brightest bulb on these things...lol...


Dog, it worked...lol... That is the one in my Avatar... HTH...
