Got a new toy, need new friends

Hi there! Great group and site ya'll got here.. Been a long time member over at, first bike was a 76 KZ650, then a 05 ZRX 1200, and now a 95 Vulcan. (still got the others, too )
Just wanted to pop in and say hi, because I have a handful of issues to sort out with the new addition.. The previous owner left me a few parts after he rebuilt the front cylinder for a leaking water jacket.. Hope I can be of some help to others, too.. I've done a lot over the years, most involving fixing things, currently fix people; I'm an avid rider even in the cold of Delaware.. but even I won't ride in snow, that's just dumb (unless it's a ice bike.. that's like Aussie football for motorcycles!)... do all my own wrenching and plan on giving the Vulcan to my Dad who just had a knee replacement for a bike accident over 40 yrs ago.. He deserves something nice.. after all he's the one who got me my first Kaw.
Enough about me, thanx in advance for any help and keep up the good work!
