Interesting thread here. I'm a long time Harley rider and currently have a 2005 Electra Glide Classic. I plan to keep it and perhaps buy a 900 Classic LT for part time use (long story).
Anyway, the Vulcan 900 seems (based on what I've read on this forum) to be about what I'm looking for in a second bike. I've also been wondering what problems, if any, typically occur with the 900 once it gets 20K or more miles on it. This thread seems to indicate that there are few, if any, problems associated with moderate to high mileage Vulcan 900's.
My EGC has 33K miles on it but it had 23K miles on it when I bought it. I've had zero problems with it. I just put a new set of tires on it which was kind of expensive, but I don't mind doing routine maintenance or replacement of parts that you expect to wear out. I just don't like having those huge unexpected repair bills. Fortunately, I've had none and had none in my 8 or 9 previous Harleys.
So I gather that a 2009 Vulcan Classic LT in decent shape with 8K to 10K miles on it shouldn't be anything to be concerned about as far as purchasing it....... assuming it's priced right, of course. Any guestimates as to what an 09 with say 10K miles would be worth?
