Checking In

Hey everyone, my name is Seth, I'm 27 years old, from Anchorage Alaska, currently live in Portland Oregon, and am a student Pilot. I've been riding for 4 years now (Kawasaki ninja 250) and decided to upgrade to something a little bigger. Found a craigslist add for this Vulcan 750 and completely fell in love! I've done 100% of all my repairs on both bikes and have never taken either to a shop. Right now am either flying planes or riding my 1992 Kawasaki Vulcan 750!

awesome! sounds like you'll fit right in here, mechanical knowledge is almost necessary to own one of these.

Welcome to the forum, and thanks for the intro!

I live in NE, and usually ride a few times a week but unfortunately my bike is not in a working condition right now. See my (Oil on my spark plugs!) thread

I don't planning on returning to Alaska to live anytime soon, I actually moved to Portland before I decided I wanted to be a pilot. It just turned out that they have a lot of really great programs here for student pilots!
