I may be one of you....starting tomorrow. Come on in and meet me

Hey guys. Little history on me 1st. Been riding 15 yrs on and off. Have had:
(2) honda cbr 600s
yamaha r1
99 & 03 Hayabusa
03 Harley Street Glide.
and ive taken the past 3yrs off But now its time to get back to riding

Probably picking up a slightly used 09 vulcan 900 custom tomorrow. Rode it yesterday and really liked it. She already has the following:
• Memphis Shades Windscreen
• Clear Alternative Clear Lenses
• Kurakyn Side Mount License Plate
• Saddle man Saddlebags
• Cobra Saddle Bag Supports
• Cobra Dragster Exhaust
• Thunder Manufacturing Intake
• Cobra Fuel Controller
• Blue Led Glow Strips
• Kurakyn Fold-Out Pedals
• Saddle Men Solo Seat

So? Whatcha think?



Will be looking for a smaller, better looking windshield, and a stereo shortly after purchase.

Ive been flipping through the forum all morning, found some good info. im 6'3 230 and felt pretty comfortable on this bike. Its got the Kurakyn pedals although I wish I could get a lil less bend in the knee. He also added different handlebars it looks like, so I may try to get a different set to have me reach a bit farther. Other than that, I love this rig. Just going to eventually put on a 200 rear after I burn though the stocker.

private owner, 5967miles. What do you think is a fair price for the bike, considering the upgrades? Its cherry, I couldnt find a flaw on it.

What part of town. I am in Peoria and have actually been messaging back and forth with the woman about buying those bags. I have seen that bike on craigstlist for the last month or so. They were originally asking like $5900 and now I saw a few days ago that they dropped it to $4,700.

I would see what is their absolute best price is. It seems like they are getting married and need the cash. Good luck. I live in Peoria and would love to ride with ya. The bike looks good from the pictures. I just never went out there because they are on the far east side.
