Newbie

Hey guys I'm new member here in Tucson Arizona. Just picked up a 99 in great condition with 42k miles for $1,700. Been riding for only 2 weeks now but I love this thing already. Have some parts I need and a lot of questions so I'm really happy I found this forum thanks in advance for any and all help.

RE: I also have a good amount of wrenching experience and enjoy just tinkering. I'm 25 and love restoring old bikes and cars. This bike is my daily driver and id love any info you would have the best way to make my bike last forever. This isn't the first bike I've owned but it is the first that has run like a dream when I got it. Any thing else you would want to know just ask.

Welcome Devin, look in the vulcan verses and check how to lube the splines. Also think there's a what to do when you get your bike part too . Tons of info and good people here. They have helped me keep "Blanche" running for about 4 years.

Dam, why is it been so hard for me to sell my 05 with 10,200 miles on it for $1500.....Too bad you weren't closer. Welcome to the group!

It's a hell of a road trip from Arizona to Pennsylvania!
