You have an FJR? /QUOTE]
Yes, my Vulcan is the 2nd bike I've owned. My needs changed and it was no longer meeting all of them so I went and bought a '15 FJR, which I am absolutely in love with. You can see my FJR in most of my other videos.
My wife has now started riding the Vulcan more, which is why I've kept it around for now. Eventually my wife thinks she wants to get an FJ-09. Or maybe a Triumph Tiger 800. We have hopes to ride our bikes to Alaska together in a year or two.
Yes, I'm a member on that Forum as well as the FJROwners Forum. Plus the facebook groups. Great community. Great bike. I find it interesting that there seem to be many less posts on the FJR Forum along the lines of "Help me fix my bike" than on this forum. Don't get me wrong, the VN750 is a great motorcycle, but the FJR is so darn reliable and so much fun to ride.
I totally agree with you about the Vulcan, its a great value. I certainly spent much, much less on it than my new FJR. Features like shaft drive, DOHC, etc, are missing from the newer Vulcan 900s. I have ridden the 900 and really didn't see it as much of a step up from my 750, except for the fuel injection.To be fair, many of the bikes here with problems are 20+ years old. The FJR is a more refined and....expensive motorcycle...with modern day (21st century) electronics, fuel injection, etc, etc...
The Vulcan was a value bike, a lot of features (for the time) for little money. Not saying they skimped anywhere, but the design and components never changed since 1985, and many of the bikes we see here with issues were in sad condition when bought by the current owners.
...or is out of oil.how do you know when to put oil in a Harley?when it stops leakingThat's OK. My Bonneville leaks a little bit of oil over a few weeks time.... But it's alright....it's a Bonneville....a British twin that doesn't pee a bit of oil now and then likely has something wrong with it.......
