My ol man showed up 2 weeks ago and I thought he sold his Harley for a Vulcan. Turned out he needed a ride back home as he bought me a 2007 Vulcan Classic 1600, with 23K miles on her for $5000. I think as we are both truck drivers over the road. He wanted a ridding partner soon. haha
I have been reading AZ MVD motorcycle book a bit and watching and reading stuff online. From what I read, A lot of people say to start on a smaller "cc" motor and grow with it. Well, Dont look like I really have that option.
Can anyone give me any tips or info on what to watch for when handling this beautiful black beauty?
I have rolled it out of the garage, washed her, blew her off with a leaf blower. And as I let off on the clutch and she started sounding like she was bogging down. Turns out I gave her a bitt too much gas as I was letting out the clutch. And she moved real fast. haha (nothing bad)
When I get off the road, I want to practice with her around our housing community streets to get a head start before heading to the motorcycle school. Just get be more familiar and used to her. I wish I had highway/crash/engine guard bars on her. But I guess it will just make me more careful with her.
Any tips or info would be appreciated. Thanks guys. I will be on this forum for years I can see. Happy mothers day to all the ladies out there and you guyses moms.
