Well I finally got the Vulcan all put back together, including the stock intake system. It fired right up after sitting well over a year. I had kept the carbs full of Seafoam the whole time. And it is charging! After cleaning the cobwebs off of it I took it for a ride. Just as comfortable as I remember, but a lot more boring. Don't know if I will keep it or not. While it was took apart, I bought a new Royal Enfield, which now has almost 6000 miles on it, and it is way more fun. Lots of noise and vibration, and it looks beautiful. I quit spending a lot of time cleaning and polishing bikes a long time ago, and just maintained and rode them. But after getting the RE, I found myself doing it again. The Vulcan 750 is a great long distance touring bike. But my health issues now prevent that type of riding. I'll probably go ahead and run it up to 100,000 miles, then think about selling it.
I am a motorcyclist, NOT a biker.
