I found out today that the Vulcan 2000 that I was looking at turned out to be a basket case, it was mistakenly posted on cycle trader and should have actually been sent to the salvage yard, so that one went by the way side. Now I'm Not really sure what I'm looking for anymore. The V2K's seem to be a rare commodity and their are none close to me.

I am not really in a hurry to buy another bike because I can't ride anyhow with a broken hand but I would like to find something comparable to what I had and affordable at the same time. Any leads would be appreciated and I'll do what I can.

Good luck with your search.
There are 3 V2K's on ebay in TX right now. Not sure how close they are to you.

2008 V2K Classic LT.

Heres a really low mile , 08 LT in Waxahacie Texas.


And another low miler 08 in Round Rock
http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/Kawas...t_15345wt_1170



Question:. Who buys a NEW motorcycle in {assuming}2008 & only rides it 2800 miles in almost 5 yrs??? There seem to be quite a few low mile bikes on the market.
WOW , I put that on within 2 weeks, wnen I got my V2k new, & I wasnt retired either.
Maybe Im just a high miler???? I consider a REALLY GREAT trip , means I used up a tire enroute . A GOOD trip means oil change midway. Anything else is just a fun few days on the road.
I also bought a used V2K with 5500 mi on it, I was 3rd owner, within a month it had double that on it.??????
To each their own , I guess

08 V2K Classic

plus

04 Vulcan 2000

Old school turbocharged VW trike

VROC # 7003
ROG # 175
