May 2016 Bike Of The Month entry thread

Please post your bikes here to be entered in this month's Bike of the Month contest!

To enter your Vulcan, all you need to do is tell us a little about it, and post some photo(s). And don't forget the story behind the bike because that can often turn the trick!

The winner for each round will be chosen by our members' votes! A new voting thread will be created near the end of the month.

Year:
Model:
Eng size:
Pipes:
Seat:
Wheels:
Accessories:
And the story:

As long as you haven't won in the past year you can enter again.

Please post your entries in the active month's thread. That thread will be closed at the end of the month. We'll start a poll with that month's entries and the winner will be named and have their bike featured on the home page.

You must have accumulated 15 posts in order to enter a bike, or to discuss the bikes, or to vote. You will be able to view the bikes, but not discuss them, vote on them, or enter your own until you have accumulated 15 posts. This is the same number of posts that has been required in the past to vote for BOTM.

Please note; You may be disqualified if you 'rally votes' from other members. This can include sending private messages asking for votes, posting new threads asking for forum members to vote for you, etc.

Please be respectful when discussing other members bikes. You may also be disqualified for unsportsman-like comments about other bikes, which can include insults, demeaning comments, or demanding in open forums or PM's that others not vote for them or that they be disqualified. If you have a legitimate concern that someone is not competing fairly and should not be considered for voting, PM a moderator.

04 kawasaki 1600 classic. Bought my bike from a county sheriff which never rode it due to being a motorcycle cop. Has 37,000 miles but can't tell due to condition. I ride the hell out of it. Added trunk and Harley bags, Vance and Hines long shots, barons air cleaner, home made rear floorboards, Corbin solo and Mustang for 2 up riding. Has led accent lighting and a homemade tag bracket for led lights also.

2003 Vulcan 800 classic. Bought from a guy who caught it on fire with 1008 miles on it. Seen a post by Baldmarine who bagged his 900 and figured why not. I always liked the baggers. Has forward controls, cobra short pipes, stock seat that I redid and front fender from a 1500.

Only just joined the forum after buying my Vulcan S last month. But what better way to show it of with a few pics than to contribute to BOTM

So here it is - currently still breakin' it in. Mods so far:

- tail tidy
- racing stripes
- carbon foil on alloy covers
- headlight frame painted matt black
- writing on tires painted white

Also considering:

- new exhaust
- Viking bags (or similar)

It's to bad OnlyIllusions doesn't have enough post to enter..

If I understand, he took that rusted out frame and made that bagger from it?

Very nice if that's how I read it...

It now has 1300 miles on it which is awesome for a 2003. I have another 03 not sure what I'm going to do to it. Was thinking about a wide tire.
