Hello from NE, Pa!

noob here with his first Vulcan. 94 VN750 with 40,000 miles, yep 40,000! I really don't worry about the milage because the bike runs like a dream, very snappy. Definately doesn't seem tired at all. Is there any members in my area? I might need to bounce ideas off someone from time to time.

Welcome to the madness. Have you had other bikes before the Vulcan?
Enjoy the ride and keep the rubber on the road.

Well, that year might be the best, but the '99 ( and '00) are the fastest!! LOL

Welcome to the forum, JBilko.

Welcome to the forum. Sorry to hear you got a 94. 1989 was the last year they were any good.

I'm keepin' all the left over parts. I'm gonna use 'em to build another bike!

lol, you guys crack me up! Near the burgh, I'm a diehard Steelers fan! I just changed my battery today (on the boards advise!) and it's amazing the difference it made! The PO had a cheapo autozone battery in there.
I had only one other bike before this one and still have it, my starter bike the mighty Honda Rebel!
Oh, and of course it really doesn't matter what year bike you have as long as it's black! Because as we all know black bikes are the fastest!
