Hi all !

It was great to find such a thorough site on the VN750.
Hope to learn how to keep my bike running smooth and
keep maintenance costs down.

Have learned a lot already, especially about Splines..

My bike is a new 06', red and black. My last Kawasaki was
a 74' 175cc dual sport type. Started on a Honda 50cc in
San Francisco in 66' moved up to a 100cc Honda Scrambler,
then up to the Kaw 175cc, then took on the Honda 500xc,
then to a 2 cycle Suzuki 250cc dual sport. Let my endorsement
laps and just passed the written test and now for those
cones again. I can't believe how difficult the written test
is here in WA, also took the written test in Montana and
Arizona and they were both so easy it was laughable.

Hope to be able to ride this beautiful bike most of the year
but here in the far north country of Spokane, Washington I'm
sure that there will be days that are too snowy or icy. There
is a rider here who rides a very large 4 cylinder bike who rides
no mater what the weather is.. every day to work.

Happy trails . . .

for your colder days you can get heated gear powered by a 2-3 lb battery pack......runs for bout 2 hrs i think, and you can always bring spares or make your own....

Welcome to the forum! And the 750's =) Yeah heated gear is suposed to be quite delightful, also heated grips to help make sure your hands don't go numb. =)

Thanks for the tips

I'll keep the heaters in mind this Winter. Have ordered fully encapsulated
one piece suit with lots of insulation.
Thinking about getting one of those Yamaha TW200's that go in the
snow, that's the one with the huge back tire.

Man that weather sounds nice! Welcome to the site! Great bike! Now about those heated suits...do they make air conditioned ones? Down here I figure I might as well hose myself down before getting on the bike cause I'm going to be wringing wet when I get there anyway!

I know what you mean fergy I rode a cx500 Honda in Tempe and
Phoenix, AZ, the heat coming off the freeway felt like a blast furnace
on high.
