The Story
In May 2009, I decided to finally do something that I had wanted to do all my life. Get a motorcycle. I completed the motorcycle safety course and immediately went out to search for a bike. I fell in love with a brand new 2009 Vulcan 900 Custom SE at a local dealership but at the time I couldn't really afford it and settled for a second hand 1999 Vulcan 800 Custom.

Even though it wasn't my dream bike I absolutely loved it and rode it every chance I got. Sadly, I only had this bike for about a year. In April 2010 I was out for a ride and got cut off in traffic and had to lay the bike down. I was devistated. Luckily I didn't get hurt too badly, I had a little road rash on my knees and left arm but the bike took the brunt of the fall. It didn't look like a whole lot of damage but after the appraisal it got completely written off. I got a little bit of insurance money (not enough if you ask me) and I ended up going out and buying my dream bike.

My 2009 Kawasaki Vulcan 900 Custom Special Edition Ebony was bought second-hand but it only had 900km on it when I took it over. So it was essentially a brand new bike. The previous owner took very good care of it. I really like the look of my bike because it doesn't have a windshield or huge saddlebags that can take away from the beauty of the bike. Nevertheless, I have added a few personal touches to black-out the bike even more and to really make it my own. I've tried to stick to a "Spiked" theme for my bike and have added mods that are subtle enough to keep the pure look of the bike without overdoing it. I constantly get complimented on it and in the small town where I live I haven't seen another one like it... I guess there's a silver lining to everything.
