New challenger approaches.. on his side?

Hello all,

I'm a fairly new rider, this bike is actually my first one and i bought it back in June of this year but didn't really get to start riding until September. I've already modified my bike a bit and have done all the work myself. I put Vance and Hines exhaust on, some viking saddle bags, a Memphis shades windshield, and K&N air filters (not pods). Besides having some issues with tuning after re-jetting i have loved the bike.

As far as i go, i am currently in the USAF, stationed in Maryland but from Kentucky and plan to move back there come May of 2019. I work on all my own vehicles and don't really trust anyone else to touch my babies haha. I'm always willing to get some advice though, right now especially with tuning.

My ride:
1999 Kawasaki Vulcan 750
Roughly 19,000 miles

Aww shucks, your post title showed up, "New Challenger ...", in the right side column. Of course I thought you got a Challenger Redeye for Christmas.

Welcome to the machine!

When the weather warms up, lets get together for a ride. I spent a good amount of time in the Laurel area
