It's raining here today in Kentucky.....as I go through the posts on this site, I thought it might be prudent to know how many Kentucky riders frequent this site. If you have time....please check in and give your location.
I'm located in Paris, Ky. About 18 miles NE of Lexington....Bourbon County.

I was in Kentucky once. Work sent me to the the Mazak plant (they make CNC machines) in Florence. Spent a week there learning machine programing. Great scenery on the way to the place from the hotel (just across the river from Cinci). Just wish I could've seen more!
The catch phrase that goes with their logo is 'The other Thoroughbred from Kentucky'

I think we're getting the rain you had now, in PA. Thanks ! ;)

Hey, I just started riding on a '99 Vulcan. Actually, I bought it from the guy that started this post. It's just starting to get there weather wise and I'm having a blast. Good fun around these rural rodes in Fayette county. I figured I'd just let y'all know where I'm at.

I am from Louisville, KY. Have put about 18K miles on my 2005 Vulcan in the past two seasons. Been to Arkansa, Tennesse, NC, Virgina and have had a blast. These miles were with my girlfriend who just purchased a Bike this season. Looking to put some miles on with her by my side instead of behind me although I will miss my backrest!

There is the Kawasaki crash bar,which I have, around $80. There has been a Wingerline(sp?) on Ebay recently also for about $135.
Depends on what size bags you want. I like the Willie and Max, synthetic leather and easier to care for. They Zip off for easier removal. I had the 12" and now use the 16". The Saddleman bags are nice too.

For the guy looking for saddle bags there is a place at the london ky. exit on I-75 that has a great deal on all kinds of bags and leather. I'm in Indiana and plan another trip down there to get more leather
