New rider in the Roanoke Valley
I just got my license three weeks ago, and yesterday purchased my first bike: 2008 Vulcan Classic LT. I got it off the lot, with a 2 year after-market warranty, for $6500 (including taxes, tags, and processing.) It's in great shape, though.
It was too late, too windy, and too cold to do much more than drive it from the lot to my house, but even that was by far my longest ride until today. I logged 30 miles just tooling around town, getting a feel for riding in general, and my bike in particular. I love riding! I have been practicing with a buddy's '78 BMW, and my brother-in-law let me ride his Super Glide this past weekend, so I was at least familiar with something bigger than the 125cc I drove in the class.
I've tried to find an owner's manual online, in PDF form, but have had no luck. I guess I'll bite the bullet and buy one from Kawasaki, unless someone can point me to an online source. Meanwhile, my first basic questions are: how often do I have the oil changed, and what are the basic maintenance schedules? I'm sure the manual will cover those, and I'm probably in no danger of going over the mileage or time before it gets here, but I'd like to know for peace of mind.
