Contemplating another bike...not planning on parting with this one though espically after I knock out the Ear Shave next month! Just concerned about possible range issues with the increased fuel flow and the lack of stations on my normal routes in the mountains. The normal weekend ride is about 120 miles so I have some concerns after reading posts from others on fuel burn after the ear shave. In the meantime, I found an article from 1997 that I thought was interesting after reading several discussions from folks who are looking for a middleweight bike and discussed the Honda and Suzuki as alternatives to the VN 750.

The article has a some great information and merely confirms why we love our Vulcans. They are quick, handle well and for the most part are vibration-free. Certainly they have some MX quirks...stator, shaft drives, battery and carbs, but for the most part they deliver what the bike was designed to provide. Fun. Pure unadulterated fun!

Mileage normally decrease's with re-jetting.....re-jetting not necessary performing Ear Shave with stock exhaust.
Throttle control increase's/decrease's fuel mileage. :):):)

But alas, I have Vance and Hines Cruzers as well...

And we all know that the twisties in the hills will some twisting on the throttle! But I have a small gas can I can carry in the bag so that might make up for the twisting action! :)

Just think how great the Vulcan 750 would be if Kawasaki had solved all it's little problems. It would have been easy for them, and they had 22 years to do it. They didn't even fix that joke of a tool box door. It's still a great bike, but it would have taken so little to make it perfect.
