new rider finally got a camera

Ok here you guys bout 2 weeks ago i had drove to san antonio to get my 07 vulcan custom. I payed 5700 for it, and it had about 800 miles. HE also had some after market stuff on it. He had put a bigger tire in the back. And messd around with the lights. I just got my bike had to take it to the dealer cuz the signals wouldnt work. I dont have my license yet. But i use to have a 250 ninja. Im not really into going fast. I went on a cruise with some of my friends. But i was scared of going over 65. And they were all hauling. And telling me i need to catch up but i could care less lol. Well im barley building my confidence on the bike. I dont think i will be jumping on the highway anytime soon. I really love how the bike feels and looks. You cant even compare my old 250 to this awsome machine. well thats enough talk. here are some pics.

Good for you Chevy! Another rider might've over riden his abilities trying to keep up. Ride at your own pace and skill level.

Sweet ride! The bike looks like it wants to go fast but as ********* suggests build up your confidence first because there's a lot more power available than the Ninja. Get those lights working because lots of lighting into rear view mirrors works better than loud pipes at getting the attention of the 4+ wheelers on the highway.

Very nice ride, looks a lot like my 09 Custom. Very fine selection. You have excellent taste in motorcycles.

Cheers for you in not letting others bully you into riding at speeds you are not comfortable with. Ride within you skill/comfort zone, exploring the boundaries of your envelope carefully as your skill and mileage build.

You will do well.

Andy

PS: Thanks for sharing pictures of another fine Custom!
