Finally got my 1998 Vulcan 1500e Classic operational and out for a ride. I've only ridden it home after buying it and to and from the shop when I had it gone over and fluid/filters changed. My other two bikes were a 2004 H-D Heritage Soft Tail Classic and a 2014 H-D Street Glide. The Vulcan performed perfectly!! Took it down the "5 and Dime" which is a great "test track". I couldn't be happier with the Bike...if I had gone to a tailor and had been measured for a suit, I doubt that it would have fit me as well as the Vulcan! It's the equivalent of an H-D Soft Tail, but a little lighter. That means that it is more maneuverable and I don't have to fight it. It is also perfectly balanced. The exhaust note is similar to a Soft Tail. I am in Heaven. The Bike is just perfect for me......did I mention that I paid only $1,750.00 for it! I can and have done work on it and I have decided that this will be my last bike. As it is a 1998, we can grow old together and enjoy each other's company. It may be a 1998, but it runs like a 2018! I have to give a shout-out to Screamin Motosports of Eltham. They are just the best. It was declared a "very clean Bike" by them. The ride was beautiful, however, I realized that I need to wear more clothes as I have lost 70lbs of internal insulation since I last really rode. If anyone is wondering, the license plate "MSHKA" stands for Mishka, my little Black Pug who I lost to a brain tumor in March. He loved to ride (in a car) so much. This way, every time I am on my Bike, he can be with me.
