Back in the Saddle

Hey Guys,

I had an '89 Vulcan 750 back in '08-'09 when I started riding, now I was looking to get a bike after a decent absence and found an '06 with 11k miles on it for cheap. I'm more interested in doing some customizations this go around, and some quick google searches lead me here. I'm in Kitsap County, Washington. Not a lot of experience with motorcycle repair or customization, but pretty handy in general and I can youtube like a champ.

Glad to be here!

Thanks, guys!
@OleDirtyDoc , It does seem a bit crazy in here sometimes

@Nitrospaz9 , You can find anything on Youtube these days! I've been renovating a house for the last year, and have probably saved $10k by learning how to do stuff online. Is it as good as a pro? Probably not, but it certainly isn't $10k worse!

Howdy LandyLou !

Youtube is great but to be honest I probably would not have kept my '85 if not for the great people in this forum. It was pretty rough when I got it and I can't wait to get to know my Vulcan better so I can help others too. Welcome !

1985 VN700A
Kawasaki introduced the 750 cc class Vulcan worldwide in 1985. Due to tariff restrictions in the United States on bikes over 700 cc imported from Japan, the initial US spec model was limited to 699 cc. The tariff was lifted in 1986 and the Vulcan went to 749cc.
