Hi, my name is Kevin. until last year i never even rode a motorcycle. in 36 years NEVER. Seen my step dad take a spill when I was younger.We were riding behind him in our car. i was 7. always have been scared of them after that. Last year I said what the heck! I was curious and wanted one. So i bought a 2001 Kawasaki Vulcan Classic 1500. I learned to ride on this. I was told I was crazy for learning to ride on a bike that big. never dropped it, haven't wrecked it. came close a few times in some empty parking lots. I know people get upset about posting questions in the wrong area on some sites. however this site is massive. I am needing to know where to go for overheating issues. thanks in advance. I love riding. wish I would have started riding sooner. better late than never. againb thanks everybody.
