New to this Forum.

Hi there everybody.

I'm new to this forum. I Live in Norway, in the western part, north of Bergen. My VN750 is a -86, first run in Calirfornia for 10 years before someone imported it to Norway.

I wish you all a happy new year.

Regards
Richard Schumann

Welcome. Not too many members from Scandinavia, so nice to have one more. You have some quite spectacular scenes there where you live.

Thanks, and yes it's rather spectacular, driving around in the early summer with snow on the mountains, and the trees are green and sun is shining...

I will try to post some rather nice pics from the area here, but i have to wait until the summer... It's winter here now, with snow and all...

Welcome Richard, happy new year and we are partial but you have chosen a great bike and come to the right place. If you ride 2 wheels this is probably the best place on the web. We ask that you ride safely and feel free to post pictures of those beautiful sights so when you ride take a camera with you.

Shiny side up.

Welcome aboard. I didn't realize Vulcans were so widely distributed.

Welcome to the Vulcan madness Richard. Are you new to riding, or is this the latest in a series of bikes?

That brings up something I've always wondered about. Was the Vulcan 750 sold around the world, or was it mainly a U.S. bike? Jerry.

I am a motorcyclist, NOT a biker.

I have been riding since 1984, but my "old" -86 VN750 is the latest bike yes. I think it's wonderful to drive, and fits me very well.

I think there was US/Canada models, and there were Europe models. There was just minor diferrences between the models i think.
