Hello everyone. Newbie rider here. Just joined the forums today. New to motorcycles and riding. Just bought my first bike not long ago. Vulcan 900 Classic SE. I love it. Looked at lots of different motorcycles online and in dealerships. Contemplated getting a Harley Davidson. My wife works with a lady at her school where she teaches whose husband works at the local Harley dealership. Also looked at Honda's, Suzuki's, Yamahas, Triumphs, etc etc. Contemplated getting a Ninja 650 but when the wife saw it she was like "not no but hell no". Saw the Vulcan in a dealership here a few months ago and it was like "Yes! Thats it!." The bike felt very comfortable. I am 5'11", 265 lbs. I can flat foot the Vulcan very easily. Going to take the MSF course soon, but have had a couple private lessons.
