Yes, Okie, definitely! Love to hear about the Parkway. It's on my list... someday.
Theauhawk - Yes, it's quite a change. That Venture was my 5th bike, and the only superslab cruiser I owned. I took several motorcycle classes on that bike. Parking lot tricks on an 800 lb bike wasn't easy! Failed the first course. Passed later on, and then took the Experienced Rider Course. That bike and I were good friends for many years. I put 10,000 miles on it the first year I owned it. But now, I'm ready to downsize to something more nimble for daily driving, weekend cruising, and the occasional road trip.
Yep, someday, someone will have one for sale nearby. They may want to trade up to a BIGGER bike, but BETTER? Not in my mind. All those Harley wannabes leave me cold. Nice lookers, but I don't like the feel. Having been born, suckled, weaned and aged on 70s and 80s style bikes, I'm fairly confident the Vulcan is where I'm going to be most comfortable. But the proof is in the pudding, as they say.
Hey, I'm really glad to be here. This is a great forum! Many thanks to the folks who developed this site! Now, I'll shut up. My mouth runneth over.
