Not everybody who rides a Vulcan 750 is a Vulcan 750 enthusiast. He probably just got it as transportation. Back when I drove air cooled bugs, all, or almost all, air cooled VW drivers waved at each other. Then came the "New Beetle" Suddenly they were everywhere, just like PT Cruisers. Someone who drove an air cooled bug wrote a letter to one of the magazines, complaining that "New Beetle" drivers were not waving back at him. The editor explained to him that unlike those who choose to drive air cooled VWs, and had to put up with a great deal of inconvenience to do so, the owners of these new, front engined liquid cooled, computerized bugs were not likely to be VW "enthusiasts", they just liked the looks of the car, which was a thoroughly modern car in every way, the exact opposite of the air cooled VW. I've even seen Harley riders not wave at each other. I have passed many Harley riders while on my Road King that did not wave. Perhaps the way I was dressed or my full face helmet put them off. Apparently riding a Harley is not enough, you have to LOOK like one. Like I care.
I am a motorcyclist, NOT a biker.
