I'm new to this site, but have been perusing it for several days. Looks good!
I'm between bikes right now and looking for a new one. I previously owned a couple of Goldwings and rode both of them mega miles. I'm looking to lighten up and slow down a bit so the mid-size cruisers have caught my eye. In particular, the Vulcan 900 Classic LT. I talked to a friend who is a service manager for a major delearship in S. California. He went off for about ten minutes telling me everything bad he could think about the Kawasaki Vulcans. He seriously advised me not to buy the 900 Classic. He said the dealerships can't get parts, accessories don't exist, the Kawasakis have serious mechanical isssues, resale value is low. He went on for several minutes.
I've never known anyone who owned a Kawasaki who any serious problems with the bike. I'd always heard great things about Kawasakis.
I would like to hear from a some of you about Kawasaki's in general, the cruisers in particular and about service and repair issues, general reliability, quality control.
Any opinions and experiences would be appreciated.
Thanks in advance.
