Just sold my Vulcan

Just sold my VN750. If the bike was bigger, I would have kept it forever. I got a 2006 VTX1800C. The bike is definately big enough for me now. Just have to get some forward control extensions and i'll be set. Bike has everything else I want. I know you guys are all about pictures so i've attached a few photos of the new ride.

I would like to thank EVERYONE on this site. Everyone has always been extremely helpful and patient with me. I told the owner about this site and he said he has already been checking it out.

Bike came with:
Mustang studded seat with Mustang backrest pad
Hondaline backrest
Switchblade 2 up windshield
Desperado Bags with shock cutouts
Desperado tailbag
hondaline luggage rack
cobra saddlebag supports
Saddleman quick release
Windshield bag
Kuryakyn Highway pegs
Kuryakyn peg extensions
Cobra passanger floorboards
cruise control
Cup holder
Tank bib

Nice...!!! Last Sunday on our little group ride (5 bikes) we rode a shade over 200 mi., I rode the rear right behind one just like that except the color & bags, I noticed when he cranked on the throttle it seemed to have some very good punch...
Enjoy, but stick around, I did and don't get too much flack...lol...

Yes, its got a good punch when you crank the throttle. The 5th gear is really geared high. So I never hit fifth unless i'm on the interstate. The bike is amazingly maneuverable too. I thought it would be too big and bulky but its agile and I really like the way it handles. All my buddies have different bikes. I have the VTX, 2 with a harley (Sportster and VRod), 1 with a boulevard, 1 with a VStar, and 1 croth rocket. We all get along fine. Of course i'm not leaving this place. Its one of the best bike forums on the internet and that's only because its got the best group of guys and ladies out there.

I know what you mean about the higher gears, after being used to the VN750 and going to the 1200 Sportster I had to start ridin the clutch and holdin the rear brake a bit in 1st gear when I needed to go really slow...lol...
Something funny was, we have talked about seasching for 6th gear on the VN750 and how sometimes we tried to find it, well even with the higher 5th gear of the 1200 Sportster I still do it, I think that a lot of times we are just makin sure we are in high gear... I ran up to 100 mph the Thursday just to see what the rpm was at 100 mph, and it was only 4,800 rpm... I think you may use 5th more after you get used to the torque of that engine, I usually use 5th at or after 50 mph when crusin in flat land, which is 2,400 rpm... I keep sayin 1200 because the 883 has lower gearin...
You are right about this forum, a very fine bunch of folks...

It...it...it has a luggage rack and a cup holder!!!

Seriously nice bike. Plenty of room to carry your stuff and a passenger with power to spare I'm sure.

Congrats on the great purchase.

Since no one else has asked...what year/mileage with your VN750 and how much did you get for her? If you don't mind me asking of course!

Be well and ride easy.

that is a seriously fast bike,it will cook the vtx 1300,My 1500 Classic has an extremely high 5th gear too.you'll get used to it though and let the torque of that big inch v-twin start pulling down lower.Mine will bust the 55 mph speed limit in the first two ,before it bumps the rev limiter and I know that yours is faster.Makes you wonder why there are five gears when you crank it out in fourth and it is scary fast , don't it?I like that tach mount and the bike in general.Flames and hot rods ,timeless combo.

Watch out Old dog will accuse you of going "geezer glide".Admittedly I went a little farther to the old school big twin look than you but I tnink you will be happy.

Last year I went on a charity ride and there wqas aguy with one like yours that told me "It's just too much bike"Naturally ,I offered to trade my little 1500 to it ,but that ended the conversation ,ride safe.
