Default New Rider from North Georgia

Just purchased a 2003 Vulcan 800 with only 13,000 miles. I rode today for the first time and was very nervous. I never got past third gear but had a blast. I am thinking of bobbing it in the future

I ride an 05 800 in Dalton. Ride with a friend just north of town with an 04, and another from Cleveland, Tn. on I think is an 01 maybe. If your not to far off, should hook up and ride once you get comfortable, but never get too comfortable!

Have you taken the MSF Basic Rider course? If not, find one and sign up. The 800 is an awesome bike, and though low on the Vulcan line, it has enough weight and power to be quite a handful for an inexperienced rider.

See you in the 800 forum!

Hi Rick, I live in Ellijay. Not too far from you. When I get comfortable maybe I can cross the mountain in route to Dalton.

Hey Todd, welcome. I just went through Ellijay today on the way back from my Smoky mountains trip. Stopped at Panorama and had a fried apple pie on the way home, good stuff. Let me know if you ever want to go for a ride, I am always riding up the Ellijay way.
