New rider from Arkansas

Just saying hello to everyone. Just bought 2003 Kawasaki Vulcan 750 2 weeks ago and enjoying it as much as possible before the cold weather hits.

Welcome to the sight. You need to check in on the forum to get all the info you need to keep your bike up and running. You also need to check all the things to look for on a used bike. That is if you have not done it yet. Other wise have fun riding.

Welcome. There are several members in your area. OlHossCanada will check in here pretty soon. He has a list of things new VN750 owners should do in his signature.

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

Well since you are listed as Central Arkansas you should be able to ride pretty much year round. I'm in Conway.
You might also consider a ride up to Eureka Springs Sept 16-20 for the VROC Reunion that I coordinate

I'd like to thank everyone for the warm welcome. I"m not what you call a very mechanically inclined person but can work on some easy to mid level difficulty fixes. At the moment, both fork seals are being replaced so no riding for me yet. Bike is in really good condition with 13,000 miles on it. I would check out the "used bike checklist" if someone can show me where it is located. Once again, thanks to everyone for such a warm welcome.

Thanks for helping me find the new owner forum section. Eureka Springs sounds like a nice ride. I will have to check with the boss lady first. That's right before Fayetteville's bikes, blues, and bbq begins. Anyone going to that? I've always wanted to but something always prevents me from going.

Oh man I wish I could go, maybe next year. If the boss lady says no you might be able to talk her into the rally in Hot Springs this weekend
