Bikes, Blues abd BBQ

Just curious if any Vulcan folks will be at the event this year?

If you see me and/or my red/?? 1700 Nomad, don't hesitate to say hello

They are all in my garage and at least two if not all of them will be for sale come spring.

To answer your question, in 1984 I was knocked off of a 1982 V45 Sabre by a 1976 Olds 88. Until 2012 I had not been back on a street bike.

My youngest started her final semester of college that fall and the Nomad was my first bike in almost 29 years. The following December I found the Voyager that needed a new home and just couldn't part with the Nomad yet.

The Softail was purchased in December and the 900 was 2 weeks ago. Both were because the price was right and I wanted to try more cruisers before buying a new or close to new Voyager.

Why are they all cruisers? Because I may have been built for speed in the past but that is no longer the case, at least not on a daily bases.

Hmmm... This could be within reasonable riding distance for me. I'd love to participate this year. Sounds like fun!

Did anyone from the board go last year?

Fair enough. I think i know how you feel about no longer being built for speed . After 29 years [long time] must of felt good to be back even under the circumstances.
