I have a habit of buying old bikes cheap and bringing back to some semblance of life. I still have a '93 shadow 1100 that I am slowly fixing up. Runs well. Last year I tuned up an '87 BMW k75 and before that I was riding a vstar 1100 I had bobbed out. This is my first big cruiser. Put 300kms on it on sunday on back road twisties and love it.

The Vaquero 1700 I bought last year is also my first big cruiser (CM125 >> 400 Special >> GS750 >> VN900). I let my son take my 900 Custom and together we rode from home to Baltimore 2 weeks ago. My first major ride on the Vaquero. 650 miles round trip (that's about 1046 km). That was his first ride after getting his license in June.

These Vulcans are awesome bikes!
