I think he will also be getting a sissy bar or backrest for my mom or maybe a whole new seat. Hopefully some pipes too.

Enjoy the pics.





Now I cant wait till spring in Pennyslvania.

OlHossCanada They are nice looking bikes. I was looking at them a year ago, before I found my Vulcan. I hope you and your folks enjoy many miles going down the highway together.

Nice bike Gus! Here's a link to the "Intruder Alert Forum." http://www.intruderalert.com/cafe/index.cfm

There are sub-forums for the S83 and the S50. Although obviously not as good as our forum, it's a pretty good forum. The S50 is a nice Cruiser, but it does require a valve adjustment about every 4k miles. I'm mechanically challenged, so opted to not get this bike.

I wish you and your Dad safe and happy riding!

I would think there should be a group similar to this one (although none could be better than the Vulcan group!!) somewhere on the net.

And I hear ya about PA weather. We just had snow, then rain, then freezing rain, then more snow!!

Yeah this PA weather has be terrible recently. Cold, overcast, and icy... grrr. COME ON SPRING!!!

Old Dog My neighbor and riding buddy has an 06- C50 Boulevard which I believe has the same engine but a bit different bike design... It is fuel injected and he gets very good gas milage 50-58mpg and has had no problems that I know of other than regular maintenece... He has been happy with his C50 is about all I can say, I just don't care for the Classic style of the C Boulevards myself, and lean more to the S style...
Have a good one...Old Dog...
