It does have a lot of things newer bikes don't.
Tach/Speedo on handlebars where you can see them
Tubeless Aluminum Wheels
Hydraulic Valve Adjusters
Most bikes nowadays don't have those features. You won't find a centerstand on pretty much anything. No tachs. Spoke wheels. Chain drive. etc.
Plus, newer cruisers all look exactly the same. They don't have much ground clearance, so they scrape the pegs easily, and have a lot of useless 'bling' type features that don't do anything useful. They are all made to look like the exact same styled Harley.
If I were going to invest serious money into a motorcycle, it would be something like Knifemaker has... a Yamaha FJ, or something with a more upright seating position and a LOT more power! 2nd choice just for blasting around would probably be a Yamaha V-Max.
New style, blinged out copycat cruiser??? No Thanks!
The Vulcan is a great, feature ridden, low maintenance, cost effective bike to ride around town. I put saddlebags and a $69 piece of luggage on the rear rack, and I can haul all kinds of stuff on the thing. Taking it to the store is no problem! Heck, a full face helmet and jacket will fit in the rear luggage pack, alone! (vinyl luggage sits on an aluminum plate with U-bolts tieing it all together. It has a strap that goes around the sissy bar, and it's all very solid.
This is the luggage. I don't use the round part.
