Question Good Price? 2009 Vulcan 500

Hey guys, I am new here. I just bought and picked up my first "real" motorcycle ever, a 2009 Kawasaki Vulcan 500 LTD. I got it from a deal about 220 miles away each way. I paid $3852 out the door, but I also added a new windshield ($50), and a Vulcan leather jacket I believe its the Vulcan II leather but not sure since there is no identification on it other than a tag that says "Kawasaki". So the grand total is $3960 with the accessories, there was .7 miles on it, so what do you guys think about the bike price? are the accessories good? To me it seemed like a great deal but I didn't have much time to research the bike and deal extensively only about a day, but I just had that feeling about it you know! Oh and by first "Real" bike I mean I have been riding a 2001 Ke100 for the last 2-3 years on road and off. I never thought I could afford a new bike so I am stoked, this bike is SWEEETNESS!! I got a HJC helmet, and plan to buy some gloves, boots, and pants when I can afford. Any deals out there? I know it's a lot of questions and stuff so don't feel like you have to answer them all. Is there anything else you guys recommend for it? I am quite broke as of now haha but I saved cash, so no debt for me!!
Thanks guys,

Great Price! Hope you enjoy your new ride. You may want to try factory-overloads on ebay for your gloves. I bought some last fall for $25 and have been very pleased with them.

I bought a 2009 Vulcan 500 with 28 miles on it back in February for $3800.00. However, I have since added a windshield,saddlebags,drivers seat back. (600.00) I really do enjoy riding this bike. Plenty of pep and very easy to handle.
