After reading different posts on this forum for several months, I was wondering if there is a listing with definistions of all the varied terms being used for some cycle changes for the benefit of some of us "newbies". Many times I am totally lost with exactly what is being discussed. Terms such as marbles, degoat, belly, etc are foreign to many of us without the extensive background. I myself just started getting into motorcycles at age 57 and I really want to learn but it is almost a foreign language at times. Thanks for any direction that may help me and other "newbies".

Here are a few definitions from the (big) Vulcan forum. Not all are applicable to the vn750.

The vn750, being only half the displacement of the 1500, is sometimes referred to as the 1/2BUBF. lol

If you check the Vulcan verses, you can find topics entitled "Ear shave", What is Coastering" (has definition of marbling included), and "Goats Belly".

I`ll try to find another dictionary I have seen too.

Here`s a link to a MC/RC Education site with a terminology list.

Glossary of Terms

Thanks gentlemen. I appreciate your quick responses. I am doing some custom work on my 2000 Vulcan 750 and I always look to see what information I can obtain from the forum threads. I hope to have some before and after pictures to post by the middle of next month.

Keep riding and keep safe.
