Cool

I have the Appalachian moutains here in PA to ride around. Great riding around in the coal regions, lots of old winding roads. It's great riding through the mountains in the summer. You run into alot of small towns along the way. My good friend has a 2005 Vulcan VN750 and I had a hard time keeping up with him on my old 1980 KZ750 last year. Now that I got my 94 Vulcan this year, I can't wait to hit the back roads with it. We finally had some nice weather the past 2 days, went for a ride yesterday and loved every minute of it.

I had a great time riding Skyline Drive through Virginia. Tons of Twisties!!
And the backroads of Western PA, what could be better (well, maybe the roads out West!)
The Vulcan handled them all with no problems!!

And on the open road, such as interstate and highway, the Vulcan handles them just as well. Although I'd prefer taking the roads less traveled!!

I've enjoyed just about every road I've had the Vulcan on.
One exception would have to be city roads, especially in Pittsburgh. I hate city riding!!

EQPlayer,
I live here in the Bay Area as well and I have to say we are fortunate to have some of the best motorcycle roads in our own backyard. I've taken my bike through the Santa Cruz mountains and up through the Sierra and everything in between. The bike handles it all well.

I love cruising country roads best ~ straight, twisty, flat, hilly. But, day to day, I use my bike to commute within the city. It's nimble and quick, whether I'm on a city street or a patch of interstate.
