Buh bye Vulcan

The fever hit me, I found an awesome deal so my '09 Vulcan 900 Custom SE is being replaced by one of these:

I've seen those at a local dealer's. I like the look. Good luck, but stay in touch with the Vulcan family.

Now, if only we could get that bike on a cruiser platform.

Not trying to be overly nosy but how good was the deal? I like the look of those but it would be hard for me given how many used CB's are on the market for cheap.

Well, this is not your old CB, this one is completely new. It's been in Europe for a year or so and they finally decided to bring it here. The dealer where I shop had this 2013 CB1100 used; some guy bought it and didn't like it and traded it in on a Burgman scooter! It retails for 10 grand and I'm getting it for $8700, and trading in my '09 Custom SE.

That's not too bad a deal. I know that it's a fully modern CB - I'm just cheap. Hope you like it - I do like the looks of it a lot.

Don't really see the appeal but to each their own. Good luck with it!

I doubt it would be comfortable on any kind of extended riding. A few years ago, I fell in love with a ZRX1200. It was a great bike as long as I did not ride more than 50 miles.

I've got a Concours 14 for long rides, but it generates some heat in town running errands, etc. That's one reason why I got the Vulcan, that and I thought it looked great.

I had an old Concours 1000 and I loved that bike. Great for riding all day.
