Hi,

I am new to motorcycles and would love some advice. I am looking to buy a used Vulcan as my first bike and can spend about $2,000 to $3,000. I am in AZ and so there are plenty of options available on craigslist. But what are the key things I should look at for, e.g., mileage, clean title, how old, etc? Thank you so much in advance!

An old bike with low miles hasnt been ridden and may have problems running. Be sure to fire it up and ask if you can test ride it. Make sure it shifts smooth. If it doesnt want to shift or bangs in each gear. I would pass on it. (Clunking a bit going from neutral to first is common and nothing to worry about) Be sure to check all lights and tires for cracks. Also look for signs of leaking brake fluid and oil.
