3 weeks ago I laid my vulcan down and caused 3200 bucks worth of cosmetic damage. The last of the replcement parts arrived late yesterday and I have finally got the old girl back into shape. The things I learned from all this were numerous, but the number 1 thing is:

Have a shop manual...spend the money and get one. It proved to be EXTREMELY valuable.

After I give her a good washing, I'll post a few pictures.

Cheers

Nice job! I like the bags/trunk. $3200 I am surprised they didn't total it.

I am curious, since you and your ride have been through this traumatic experience and healing, how do you feel about it now?

At least you'll have a few war trophies to hang on the garage wall and laugh about.

Since I still don't know what really happened, it is on the wierd side. My confidence was shaken a little, but I had to ride 200 miles just to get home. By the time I got everything fixed, I had ridden a little. Now, for the most part I am "back to normal."

Just a bit more observant, that's all.

Good for you! The fact you had to ride it home helped your confidence and desire to return it to normal. I have never been a fan of 2 tone color schemes with the exception of any thing with blue, and yours is sharp.

Nice job, looks great, good to see you are back in the saddle and your bike is back on the road. Love that two tone.

After I went down years ago, the biggest thing I had was I was squeezing the grips so hard my hands would cramp on the grips, be white and cold! I had to train that stuff outta me. :D
