I commute back and forth to work every day, in all kinds of weather, putting an average of 10K miles per year on the bike over the last three years. It's now getting to that time of year where I'm...

Saw two Vulcan 750s riding around Rhome, TX yesterday (and fell in behind them at one point, though I didn't realize that they were VN750s at the time). Was that anyone here?

I've always worried about the grip heaters because of the relatively weak electrical system that seems to hamper the VN750. I don't want to overtax what seems to already be a taxed system...
