October 2012 BOTM Winner, 417vulcan!

Another close vote! Congrats 417!


Here's my submission:

Its my 2009 Vulcan 900 Custom. I bought it new in 2009, I previously owned a Suzuki GS500 but at 6'3" and 250lbs it didnt really fit me too well. Currently have about 12k miles on it. My mods as of right now are:

Cobra II headlight
Saracen front fender
Thunder Mfg Tornado intake
Cobra FI2000R
Freedom Performance Sharp Curve Radius Pipes
Orange LEDs under the tank and fender with remote control
Barons flame brake reservoir cover
Kuryakyn ISO Grips with contoured throttle boss and stiletto end caps
Tourmaster slant saddlebags
Kuryakyn flame pegs with heel rest
Homemade 4.5" forward control extensions
Bad Boy airhorn
Kawasaki sissy bar
Kawasaki luggage rack
Saddlemen Profiler tattoo seat
Custom paint job done by me.

I think thats everything.....

Well deserved. Very tastefully and beautifully done!

I'm a sucker for home-made stuff too (in the case of this paint) that looks good. There aren't a lot of aftermarket options for the 900 so they tend to kind of all look the same one way or another. Yours is truly unique!

Congrats!
