Not sure which of those bikes are going to keep up or out handle the 750, I guess it would have to be the Harley, maybe it's a Screaming Eagle or could it just be a Buzzard... You should be able to take the Shadow, 750 or 1100 & the 900 Kaw., so most say anyway...
I think I might have to say, lets find out which is the lady's bike, follow me...lol...
Have a good one...Old Dog...

Scootergptx The guy with the 1800 was over this weekend when I took mine out. Said it sounded like a girls bike compared to his.

Of course, had to say I wouldn't know, I've never seen you ride it.

I wouldn't mind a bigger bike. But that's for longer cruises, and in the future. But even then, it would probably be a full dresser, and 1600 is way more than enough.

For now, this is the perfect bike. I'm in a lot of traffic, it's easy to handle and has the power to get me out of the way. (or ahead of the pack)

If there's any way possible, when I do get a new bike, I'd like to hang on to this one just because it's the perfect commuter bike. (to me anyway)

Old Dog Since the VN750 & the Meanstreak are gone, I kinda like the looks of the Suzuki S83, then maybe the Sportster, but that is about as far as it gets...
At least it don't look like you are riding a big foundered bull......

That was one thing I liked about the 750. Didn't have the same jug design every other model has, didn't have the same air intake they all seem to use, there's a long list of things it didn't have that everyone else seems to copy from each other.

Too bad they couldn't bring back the same design, and maybe they could make it an 1100 or 1200 to compete with the bigger bores.

I have two museum pieces in my garage now, Vulcan VN750-A9 and Vulcan Meanstreak VN1500P1, love them both. Nothing in Kawasaki's line up now that I like.

Scootergptx Maybe it's just the 6th gear that has me interested.

ruger yes the victory hammer and the rest of the victory bikes are very nice looking. but for me that is as far as I will go. they are too big and way too much $ for me.
