August 08 Bike of the Month Winner - Mikester65



Year: 2007
Model: Vulcan Custom
Eng size: 900
Pipes: Vance & Hines
Seat: stock (for now)
Wheels: RC Components Vega (18" rear)
Accessories: a bunch (can anyone say, "addiction"?)
And the story: The last time I rode anything on two wheels was my GS 450 back in the late 80s. My youngest brother has a HD 100th Anniversary Night Train--very nice bike. I was visiting him one day last fall and he suggested I take it for a ride. After some hesitation, I finally did--and then wondered what the heck I'd been doing for the last 18 years! I came home, did some research, and within a week was wheeling my Vulcan into the garage. It's a great bike: lightweight with decent torque, and affordable. The best part is, we convinced my other brother to get a bike, so now the three of us get together to ride!
