(Long 1st post but happy reading...!)
Hello the forum...I've been lurking a bit, just learning how the forum works, and have now become a new member.
I've recently made the switch from "sport" riding to something a little different...the last 2 bikes being Ducati Monsters (M800 and S2R1000). This 2009 900SE is actually my 2nd Vulcan, the 1st being a Vulcan 500 oh-so-many years ago.
I made the decision to switch mainly after one...<ahem>..."spirited" ride on the Duc and I couldn't move for 2 days...
I haven't ridden the new bike much because I'm having the most awful time finding proper-fitting goggles. I have absolutely no bridge on my nose so the normal riding glasses don't fit. After goggles #4, which still didn't let me see clearly due to the wind, I give up.
There I was, with goggles #4, eyes are watering, squinting to see, coming up to an intersection, and some numnuts decides to pull a u-turn right in front of me...and...have you ever seen a cruiser "backing it in"...so to speak...
Anyway, I might have to go back to my full-face (was hoping not to), or add a windshield (not really what I want to do either)...or maybe someone can suggest a good 3/4 helmet with visor...?
So here she is...I did the reflectoromy and mini-debadge...still of 2-minds on the tank badging... I had to get the floor boards and heel/toe shifter because I couldn't reach the pedals, me being a shortie at 5'4"...the floor boards are soooo comfortable, I don't think I'll ever own another bike without...!
See you on the forums...asking, learning, and contributing...!
