Had to sell my Vulcan due to unforeseen financial complications. I didn't think it would bother me that much, not having a bike, but boy was I wrong! Now I feel sick every time I hear a bike rumbling off in the distance. My wife is even bummed out.
Now we have a new goal....get our finances in order, save up, and get a new bike. I think I'm going to look into Victory motorcycles. Talked to a few people that have them and they all love them.
Well, thanks to everyone on here that has provided great advice and info for my bike. Ride safe and have a good 4th!;)

I know how you feel and I'm sure you'll be back in the saddle in no time :). I love the Victory's too, took one for a test ride but being a newbie it just felt like too much bike so I bought my 09 SE last October. One day I'll be swinging a leg over a Victory too :)

Best of luck to you Chupa.

Can surely appreciate the feelings...I've got mine, but even when I'm away or not riding, I hear that distinctive v-twin rumble and how it stirs. If you don't ride for awhile you can feel yourself getting edgy.. those winters are soooo loooong.

I'm sure you'll be on another before too long...best wishes.

Best of luck. If finances are an issue, Victory motorcycles are more than twice the price of our 9's. I actually toured the Polaris plant in Spirit Lake, Iowa where they are assembled. One reason why I really like them is all of their bikes use the exact same engine. Hopefully in a year, I will own a Victory Cross Country Tour!

Definitely keeping my KAW too!

I completely understand your situation, your family is first. This is temporary and you'll be on 2 wheels again in no time. Motorcycles will still be around and we'll still be talking about them ;)

Kudos to you for putting the most important priorities first.

Hey Chupa,
I understand. The answer might be to buy a VERY cheap bike. Many can be had for under a thousand dollars....there have been times when I had to get back on my feet....and had to let one go....and buy another. As long as it has two wheels, and the country road with no traffic still exists, your golden. Once, I owned a 550 Suzuki that had no second gear...and it still put a smile on my face. I bought it for 400 dollars and rode it for two years.
Regards, SH
