Started riding in 1967, Honda 305 dream. Interrupted by an all-expense-paid tour of Vietnam, courtesy of the US Marine Corps. Did not ride again until 2009 on a Yamaha Virago 250. Recently snapped up a 2009 Kawasaki Vulcan 900 Classic LT. I couldn't let this pass. It had 183 miles on it. I checked out the disk breaks and there were no grooves. I guess the previous owner could have had the disks turned and that it had many more miles than what the odometer indicated. I trust him.
It has leather luggage bags, back rest, a large (too large wind screen), highway bars and pegs. I'm going to tape some yarn on the windscreen and see where the turbulence is before I get it cut down. A plastics shop here in Sacramento will do it for $60.
All the fluids have been changed and I'm waiting on getting new tires. I'll ride out this summer and get them next fall.
Started out at $4,250 and he came down to $4,000. I'm satisfied!
I've been in Sacramento since 1963 with a few years out of state here and there.
