Aloha from Hawaii

So I'm looking at a 2006 Kawasaki Vulcan 900 Classic LT and thought I would stop by to introduce myself as it appears I will probably be getting this bike later this evening. I am currently riding a 1998 Suzuki Marauder VZ800, good bike, but I think the Vulcan is going to fit me a lot better. Hope to gain a lot of insight into these bikes from some of the more experienced members here.

Welcome aboard! Normally I'd have to agree with Steve and say "can't wait to see pics of the bike"... but we're talking HAWAII!!! Can't wait to see pics of the bike IN HAWAII!!! GOOD LUCK! Let us know how it turned out!

Thanks for all the welcomes. I went and picked up the bike earlier tonight and I must say I am very, very happy with the bike. It is such an upgrade over the Marauder and I know this is a bike that I will be happy keeping for years where the Marauder was something that was only meant to be a starter bike. I will be sure to get some pics up as soon as I can. Sorry I cannot package up some sunshine and send up to Washington. I lived there for a year myself back in 1997-1998, definitely not a place for me.

Welcome aboard and you've got yourself a great bike. This site will be invaluable to you now. Would you believe my wife did a Hawaiian cruise a few years ago without me! Could have something to do with the fact it was a group of about 20 nurses. Oh well, I hope to make it there sometime with or without the wife.

My neighbour, best friend and riding buddy got his 98 Marauder 800 three weeks after I got my Vulcan... a year and a half ago.

He never really liked it and was looking to upgrade almost right away... funny to hear another very similar story!

I have to agree with Jeff on this one!!
Went to Hawaii years ago and been longing to go back ever since!!! It's sooooo beautiful there!!

Welcome to the forum, congrats on the new bike, and post pics ASAP!!
