First Post

I've been learning from this site for two years. I joined last year and this is my first post. Bought my Vulcan from my son in March 2011 when he fell to the dark side and bought a Sportster. I ride almost everyday, even in the winter.About 10K miles last year. This site has been a great help to me so far. My stator went bad three days ago on a trip to the 1000 Islands and with the guidance of the guys here I will attempt to replace it using the Tuxedo Stator Mod. Thanks for all your help.

P.S. When I put in my signature line, the advertising on the page switched to Spanish. Is somebody watching?

Hey Slim

Thanks for the welcome. Pretty tough winters up there on the plateau. I still had a high beam light above Watertown. Crossed the T.I. Bridge about 5 mim. after sunset. What a site. Noticed I had no headlight when I pulled into the state park. Drove back to Watertown the next day in my brothers truck and picked up a new bulb. Still no headlght. Later that day the battery was dead. The bike went home in the pickup. Just like a Harley. Maybe we could have breakfast someday on my next trip to the river.
