Story: I rode a Suzuki Burgman 650 for 3 years when I decided to move over to a shiftier side of life. After much research, I decided on the Vulcan 900LT. Back in March of '09, when I cruised by Good Times in Carmichael, they had a new 2008 900LT in my favote color scheme on closeout at 19% off of MSRP. I jumped on it and brought it home. The bike was dubbed Eljay (or L.J. for Long Journey). As time passed I did one mod after another making the ride my own. The biggest one was changing over the stock seat for a Russell Day Long Seat which rides like a Lazy Boy Recliner. I average almost 1000 miles per month. My wife, Sandy and I go a lot of places and have been from San Francisco to Lake Tahoe and Southern Oregon on Eljay. This bike is definitely a keeper!!!

Thanks everyone. The Metzlers seem to be pretty good tires. They deffinately are much better than the stock Dunlops. The tread seems to be wearing much slower and the handling also is an improvement. As for bling and farkles, I think I'm there. The seat is the crowning touch as it were. The bottom line is that Eljay is a real pleasure to ride.

Congratz Bones! BEAUTIFUL bike!

Curious... how long have ya had the iso grips on the bike? I've heard a few folks say that the black comes off the grips, staining their hands. Any such happenings with yours?

They've been on there since late March, last year. I haven't had any problems with them, but then I always ride with gloves. I really like riding with them... very comfortable...
