Ogle --

Good on ya.....hope you get the seat.....

I bought my bike about 30 days ago...1991 with 8,000 miles in. I took it in to the dealer to get the carbs cleaned and they where amazed how clean it was. It is a two owner bike with me being the second owner -- yeah!!

Dunno if I paid too much or not...$2k, but I'm happy with it.

I also bought my wife a 1991 750 Nighthawk....the setup fits her, being that she is 5'4 and 108lbs....thank god she doesn't realize yet that her bike would rip mine to shreds if she chose to in a race. She's new to riding and the price tag on it fit $1,800 and it looks new, but has 22k miles.

Anyways...this is a great board!! Lotta nice info.

Sounds like you and your wife have gotten yourselves a pair of nice bikes!

So far my wife has not been interested in riding two up, let alone riding her own bike!

My last bike was a Nighthawk 750. It was a 1993, uncrated and assembled in 1994, and sold to me in 1995 (with only 3000 miles on it) when the owner ran into financial difficulty. I can't remember how much I paid for it ($3000?), but the price seemed reasonable and the bike was in mint condition. I know I loved riding it. Unfortunately, I sold it after only a couple of years (and a few thousand miles) to get $$$ to buy musical gear. Big mistake. I've finally learned... NEVER sell a good bike, and NEVER sell a good guitar. Even if you're not riding/playing for a season. If necessary, take out a loan!

Anyway, when I bought my 2006 VN 750 last year, I was looking for something like the Nighthawk, and the Vulcan was the closest thing I could find among all the crotch rockets, off-road bikes, and massive cruisers. At first I was surprised by how loud the V-twin was compared to the inline four cylinder Nighthawk. But I've grown used to it and really love the bike. I've put more miles on it already than my last three bikes combined!

I'm intrigued by your comment that the Nighthawk would rip the Vulcan to shreds in a race... I was so long between bikes that my memory doesn't help me compare/contrast the two. (The cylinder count is one big difference!)

Sounds reasonable to me. That's what I paid for my 2000 with ~17.5k miles, but I think I got a heckuvadeal. I see older bikes than mine going for closer to $3k (and some even more) on ebay all the time. And of course the fact that you're happy with it is more than enough to make up for a few extra dollars.

I smile 'cause I don't know what the h*ll is going on.

I guess I don't have technical proof that the Nighthawk would win, but I like my Vulcan for the cruiser look and feel. My opinion is the that Nighthawk would kill it in a race...cruiser vs. sport

I've had:
Sears 100....that was a long time ago
Yamaha RD350....1973 2 stroker...too much smoke...cough cough
Radian..first nice bike that was bigger than a 350
Nighthawk 750...easy to ride and just add gas & oil
Aspencade....too bulky for me, although nice
CR80F..ok ok the kids bike
91 Vulcan...my current bike
91 Nighthawk 750....as you said, I shouldn't have sold the first one...wife's bike...she is afraid of it riding solo...but time will tell...


Well said Big T and I agree about being happy with it...
