first day as a VN750 owner

Hello everyone. I got my motorcycle license on Sunday, and bought my bike today! It's a 93 VN750. The guy who sold it to me also told me about this site, although I don't know his user name. Looking forward to learning what I can from this site and to being part of the VN750 community.

Regards,

Mick

Welcome! Find a big open parking lot and practice your swerves and panic stops. No one sees you on a bike in traffic until you screw up.

No one can make you feel inferior without your consent.

Welcome to the Vulcan madness. Fill out your profile so we know where you are from. You may have other members close to you.
Check out link in my sig below. Also the Vulcan verses. You will run into some odd words and shorthand. ie. gb=goatsbelly=exhaust powerchamber which connects the two exhaust pipes under the battery box. It functions something like a catalytic converter. ACCT= AutomaticCam Chain Tensioner. If you can`t figure one out after reading for a while, just ask.

Oh yeah, enjoy the ride, both the bike and the forum!!

Welcome to the most addicting site on the web. Every little quirk your bike may have will have you on here looking for a reason to do some wrenching.

BTW, most here wont admit it but you got the fastest and best looking year Kawasaki released. Not that the other years dont make good parts bikes.
