I'll vote. V2K but I have previously owned a 04 1500 classic and 07 1600 mean streak.

1985 Honda Nighthawk 650 (First Bike)
2004 Vulcan 1500 Classic (First Big Bike)
2007 Vulcan 1600 Meanstreak (Love Affair)
1999 Yamaha 1100 V-Star Custom (Right Price at the Time)
2008 V2K Classic (Favorite Vulcan)
2014 HD Ultra Limited (Bells and Whistles)
Who would have thought I would grow up to become "Spatially Educated" and play Connect-the-Dots for a living.

I ride a 900 Custom. Seems the right size for a beginner like me.

Some people have more than one bike.

Should have made it a multiple option poll.

I wish we could view the users that voted so we could see who rode what. That would be neat.

I was 19 when I started. I had never rode any dirtbike or any motorcycle before. Closest thing was a bicycle. My neighbor hooked me up with the nighthawk after his son learned to ride and got another bike. That is how he got it too from another neighbor who learned to ride on it. Needless to say it had 4 different owners they was no more than .5 miles away. I sold it to another guy learning to ride.

I ride an 06 1500 Classic FI (Anniversay Edition) in ebony and galaxy silver.
Before that (years and years ago) it was a Kawasaki 200, then a Yamaha 200 electric.
Man I rode the hound out of those 200s in high school.
