Welcome to the Vulcan madness.
Yup, take the beginers riding course soonest, and keep a low wrist on the throttle for a while, until you get used to the acceleration the 750 can generate.

Not ready to hop on the turnpike to get there just yet. Thanks for the tips! 25 mph is fast enough for me, and fun! Lol

Soon 25 will be very slow but take your time. If you get there a little later it's no big thing. Getting there alive is the point. Watch the cars. The Other drivers don't see the best. Live Long and Prosper. And welcome to the forum.
