Like several have said the list would be different depending on whether it would be specific to the VN750 or all bikes in general.
My #1 would be the same on any used bike, change all the fluids and filters.
2 would be to inspect every inch of the bike, making sure all nuts and bolts are tight, no cracks or splits in tires, no leaks etc.
3 On any shaftie bike, check the lube on the drive shaft splines.
The rest, not in any particular order would be to check all the electrical connections, clean and dielectric grease them; get an MF battery, download the shop manual, and start reading as much as you can, here, in the Verses, get a Clymers manual, read that, and most importantly ask questions here.
Sometimes some of us take a jab at a newbie who asks a "newbie" question, but over all, I think most of us are patient and understanding with all the new folks. Heck, we all started somewhere. I doubt anyone here would consider themselves an expert on this bike, although there are several folks here who really know their stuff about this bike, but the forum as a whole is the expert. You can find out anything you want to know about this bike by asking here. Someone has been there--done that already.
