Most craigs ads are overpriced, I use a local buy/sell paper for the best deals.

We don't know where you are.

Would you consider us ignorant not to say "from this forum" so if one of our members has one for sale they can get the sale. Of cours the best place is from here and you can get all kinds of past history on a bike from reading the sellers past postings.

Now that you signed up to be a member it would be nice to do a proper introduction telling us a bit about your riding/wrenching experience and where you are located.

and always remember, "Ride until you rot!"
**Really not sure if the Big "C" is back right now
but having to face the fact that this is a lifetime routine
going forward. Five operations done and it still continues.

Im a total newbie to the riding world. Live on Long Island, NY - 53 years old and decided theres no time like the present.. Anyway, been doing my homework and I really like the Vulcan line. It also seems like the 750 would be an ideal fit for me. I plan on taking a safety riding course in the spring, so Im doing my groundwork now. Suggestions are greatly appreciated.

The VN750 will be a good bike to start with. Enough power but not so much that a careful beginner can't handle it. The VN is what I got back into riding with after a nearly 30 year layoff. Its a fun bike! Strongly suggest a beginning rider's course.

Since you're in Long Island and I'm in Georgia I guess you'll try to find a bike closer.

I second that. The VN750 has tons of top end acceleration, one of the best of all V-twins if it's tuned right, but the low and midrange are very smooth and mild mannered. Do take the MSF basic rider course or equivalent, even if you already ride. You'll come out of it a better rider in areas where it really matters.
