Picked up my new/used 1997 today

In the span of just a few hours today I was able to sell my '86 Honda Shadow 500 and then purchase my new-to-me 1997 Vulcan 800.

As far as I can tell this bike needs nothing. All of the routine maintenance has been done, it performs really well and it's registered through June 2018.
Plus the previous owner installed foot-forward controls, so the cockpit is really comfortable for all 6'2" of me.
The 35 mile ride home from the seller's house was comfortable...and loud.
The Cobra pipes (?) sound awesome, though.

I may own this bike for a long time...

Thanks! I finally took a picture in the daylight...



Been riding for the past three days straight, but today's rain has got her parked under cover.
