Hi, I just bought a '96 vulcan 750. Although I haven't ridden much in 25+ years My previous bikes were a '71 Norton Commando, a Ducati Diana, and a chopped '57 panhead. I'm looking forward to Mexico, Big Sur, and the canyons.
Carlos I rode A Ducati in the late 60's that was one of the fastest 250cc bikes around. It was a real screamer and a lot of fun for such a small bike. If my memory serves me right it had 30hp out of 250cc. It was a great road machine.
