My name is Adam and I have had my motorcycle license since 2008. I have never owned a bike until December of this last year. I have ridden a 2010 Victory Vegas and Kingpin, a 01 HD 883 Sportster, a 06 1200 Sportster and a Kawasaki KLR 650 since getting my license. Back in December, a friend posted on facebook that he was wanting to sell his 97 Vulcan 800 with 18k for $1250. After conversing with my wife (we agreed on any purchase over 100 dollars, we talk) and a friend convincing her it was a good deal, I bought it. It sat in my friends garage until today.

It is now in my garage and it felt great to it rip.



Not thrilled on the stickers on it, but since they are cleared over, they will stay until I sell it or get a Victory Vegas (the bike I really like).

Well I got a few miles on it before I took it in to be serviced. The dealership found a broken part so it is down until next week. At least they found it before it destroyed the motor.

I picked it up today after getting it serviced and having a bad part they found replaced (oil sump screen was installed backwards and broke). Here is some better pictures.

Is this a windshield bracket?




If so, got a link to the windshield I might be able to buy someplace or can some other aftermarket windshields fit?

This seat is so comfortable so far.
