Awesome Sight!

I'm new to the Vulcan world! I've only had my bike for 2 weeks and a member for about the same. I've learned tons already! Can't wait to learn more!

Thanks!

Welcome to the madness fred. What year is your bike? Tell us a little about yourself and your riding experience. Newbie rider on your first bike? Or an old retread coming back to two wheels? We don`t care, we will take all comers.

If you have been lurking around the site for a couple of weeks already, you probably know to change out the battery for a MF-AGM type, get NGK Iridium spark plugs, #DPR7EIX-9, at the first sign of hard starting, check the rear splines and lube with Honda Moly60 grease and several other things in the link below. Stay safe.

Thank you,

My bike is a '90 with a little over 15k miles. I've just coming back to 2 wheels, I rode way back when.... I have changed the battery out to a AGM type and as of last night she has been marbled. I'd like to get highway pegs just not sure what kid. I'm sure as I read other threads on here I will get plenty of ideas.
