60 yr young Newbie
Tinnockker here !
Had a Kawasaki 500, three cylinder, when I was a youngster, for maybe two years.
I haven't had a bike since, until yesterday.
Originally i was interested in a 2012 Superglide, but I talked myself out of that, glad I did.
Instead I got a 2003 Kawasaki Vulcan, 13,000 mi, very good condition, much lower price too.
Got the bike from a local motorsports dealer yesterday.
Put a sticker and a plate on it and rode it for the first time at the dealership.
I was very nervous, didn't want the bike to go down right in their lot, and it did not, Yeah!
I made it out of there alive and took the scenic way home, trying to avoid high traffic areas.
I put 70 mi on it yesterday and I did fairly well.
I need allot of work on my low speed maneuvers, stopping and starting tho.
I did get a video "Ride Like a Pro" with Jerry Palladino and have viewed it 3 or 4 times already.
Looking forward to getting out there and practice because my confidence isn't where I want it to be.
Looking to do a few upgrades to the bike.
A crash bar first and secondly a LED upgrade for my headlight.
If you guys / girls have any info on this any help would be appreciated.
On my laptop now but will try to log back in on my I phone and post a pick of my bike!
