:) I finally got a short ride in on my new Classic. Only about 30 miles due to time constraints but with temps in the low 40's and not taking time to dress warm (would have taken up precious riding time) that was fine. The bike is just what I had hoped. It has adequate power, handles real nice,...

Where in Nebraska do you live? My club is doing a group ride tomorrow. We're riding to Sidney and will be hanging out at Cabela's Sporting Goods Center at lunchtime. Just wondering whether that's anywhere near where you live.

From Kawasaki website: 2004 Mean Streak Service Manual no. is 99924-1321-01 and the price is $49.95.

If you have a motorcycle jack(or lift),and a vulcan classic(mine is a 03 '1500').What kind of homemade or bought gig have you rigged up to lay on the jack to fit the frame so you can raise the bike off the floor? The engine is below the frame so i need to lay maybe some 2x4 blocks on my jack so it...
I would like to hear from anyone who has a Corbin seat.
I am looking at the dual setup for my Nomad. I purchased a Mustang for my 800 and it was better than stock but after about 150 miles it would get uncomfortable. I am looking at spending about 800 bucks with the backrest and I don't want...
;-) Any recomendations for a two-up seat for the 02 Meanstreak? Pics?
Hey guys,I'm picking up a 85 vulcan for a project in the morning, the owner said he at the moment can't remember the size of the bike.Was the 85 700cc or 750cc. :? Any fast replies appreciated :-)
I just made the last payment on my 05 VN750 that I purchased this
past December. Because we are so busy here at Mack Trucks Inc. Power
Train Plant, overtime is plentiful so I was able to pay it off in 15
weeks, now I will ease off of the o/time. So now it's mine,,,all
mine, what a great feeling...
I am most likely going to buy a 2002 1500 Drifter from an estate sale and the battery is dead. What is the procedure for accessing the battery?
what size spark plug socket is needed for the 1500? The ones I have don't fit and I don't have a metric plug socket and will need to buy one.
My gal bought a 2005 Honda Shadow VLX last Saturday. We went to Vancouver and picked it up. It is her very first bike, she has never ridden at all, not even a dirtbike. She was so excited to go pick it up, and start learning. It was great. We spent the weekend practicing in an abandoned lot. She...
Some guys at work and I were having a discussion about sky-rocketing gas prices, which led to a comparison of car vs. motorcycle engine efficiency. I told them my take, but of course more substantial facts would clear things up in their minds.
So, anybody happen to have overall figures (or know...
We went to Daytona on Friday (over 700 miles on the meanie now!) Thought we would share!

On a side note my Hubby is REAL excited about

Just joined today and thought I'd introduce myself... Last year I bought a new Vulcan 800B and rode it 11,000 miles in 10 months. Yesterday I traded it in on an almost new 2003 Mean Streak. So far I've put 15 miles on it and love it. It already had cobra drags on it and I would like to add some...
