I have a Harley, albeit a Sportster. I had a '97 Road King many years ago. A bit too heavy. I love Harleys. I love the vibration and the sound. But I understand the appeal of the Vulcan as well. I'm now on my third. First two were bought new. And I racked up a ton of miles on them. Out of all the different bikes I have owned, the Vulcan 750 is the only one I can remember that I can ride for as long as I can stay awake without pain. This is peculiar to the 750. Other Vulcans aren't like that. Maybe it's because it's such a perfect fit for me. I've heard a lot of complaints about the seat. I find it perfect. I've seen a lot of people put low bars on them. The stock bars are perfect for me. The riding position creates no pressure points at all. It's small enough to be easy to handle around town, and fast enough to keep up with freeway traffic anywhere.
The feel and sound that makes a Harley so much fun to ride around on locally actually works against it on long rides. It becomes tiring. The Vulcan never seems to become tiring. It's like a magic carpet ride.
I am a motorcyclist, NOT a biker.
