Back in August I purchased a Candy Lime Green 2004 Kawasaki Vulcan 1600 Mean Streak and since then I have changed customized the bike quite a bit to make it fit my style and personality. I've got over 3k miles on her now.
Over the past weekend I had the opportunity to ride it quite a bit and I must say that I love it, more than I ever thought I would. When I ride it people give me the thumbs up, tell me how much they like the bike ask me questions, talk about getting one of their own, etc. When I ride it I feel free and relaxed as if nothing else matters. The reason that I felt the need to say this is because I also have a 210+rwhp year 2000 Suzuki Hayabusa 1300 sportbike that I've had for over 4 years. The performance of my particular bike is outrageous. It'll run the quarter mile in 9.6 seconds (w/me at the controls) and do an honest 190+mph...It'll probably top 200mph if I had a road that was long enough, but the looks I get when I ride that aren't as favorable, in fact most people probably can't stand it because of the way most of the people who have them ride it.
I'm just rambling now, but honestly...I think I like my new cruiser better than I like my Hayabusa and that is saying something, cuz I love my BUSA also, but when I ride it I don't get the same feeling of joy as when I ride the Meanie. I rode it into work today after I voted for Mr. John Kerry for president and I can't wait to ride her home this evening.
I'm done...I hope everyone has a great day and I hope John Kerry wins the election.
