It's been a fun ride, but.....

I just wanted to thank the people on this site for their collective knowledge of the Vulcan 750. You allowed me the satisfaction of being able to do repairs (stator) that were definitely out of my comfort zone without any major issues. I enjoyed that job so much, I even did it twice in the 3.5 years I owned my bike.

I couldn't trust the bike anymore, so I went and got something totally different. I bought a 1995 Honda ST1100. I like the bike due to its lack of chrome. I ride most days to work so it sits through rain showers and bright sun on an almost daily basis. It has plenty of lockable storage to keep things secure. And did I mention smooth and powerful.

I can't figure out how to share a photo of it, but it is all red with a top case. It came with an aftermarket gel seat and a tall windshield along with the stock parts.

Thanks Knifemaker, That's my bike. I will probable still stop by and see if any rides are planned up this way. I was planning on meeting up with you guys on the Wolfie Run, but that is also Pocono race weekend, so im not so sure now. I live about a half hour from Hyner.

I had a ST1100. Great bike. I was going 110 back from Vegas and thought I was going 70. Woops. Bike is super comfortable at speed, and settles in best around 85-90.



I just moved down in size to the VFR800 range of Hondas and haven't looked back. Just bought a new 2014 (old stock) and am loving it!

I think we would be closer to you than the race way. but, you would most likely have more fun at the races.
I wouldn't want to take you away from the race weekend. go have a good time at the races. it's all good. but thanks for thinking of us though.

if it goes vroom or boom, I LIKE IT!
