Saying Goodbye to the 750

Well. I rode it for 3 months and loved it. But it's just too small for me. Was a great starter bike, but I have to get something bigger so I can stretch out some. Those long hauls are not comfortable.

I have someone coming to look at her Sunday and I am going to get a 2005 1500 Classic this afternoon. I hope to hang around and 'lurk' some still-not like I am some huge contributor here anyway. But I don't want to just drop off of the map.

So this is my "sorta" goodbye. Now, if the deal falls through today I guess I will update this to say something about how awesome my 750 is!!!!

Good luck! And hopefully, if it does NOT fall through, you post up some pics of your new ride here.

I bought a 900 and they asked me to leave but I wouldn't ; ). Two years later I just bought another 750. So, don't leave because you never know.

Oh I'm still going to hang out and go through all the comments in forum. But I have my 750 up for sale And I did end up getting the 1500. Very nice bike with pretty much every little do-dad you can imagine. Anyway, when I get a chance I'll throw some pics up.

I got a 1300 VTX and it is a great bike for the open road but boring compared to the Vulcan 750. Keep the Vulcan, you'll be glad you did.

I've moved on as well to a 1600 classic. Figure it's still in the family and have made some fine friends here, so just because you've moved on so to speak doesn't mean you have to leave. It's a great place to hang.

Well, sold the 750 today...Sunday.

Got the 1500....took it on my first ride and somehow the rear tire went flat. It happened slowly, but seems like the inner tube may have just been worn out (spoked rims). Anyway, was nice while it was running.
