Love this site...

I had never riden a mc before Jan, when I took MSF, got my license, and went out and bought a new 04 Vulcan 500.

I purchased this little cruiser for basic commuter trasnportation (20 mile round trip down rural hwys). I needed some power to cruise 60-70mph and if required pass on 2 lane roadways, but being a new rider I needed a very forgiving mc -and money was a big issue for me ! This Vulcan 500 has filled the bill perfectly thus far.

And the recent spike in gas prices has made my 55mpg Vulcan even more useful :D For folks on a budget, or folks feeling the pinch from that gas-o-holic SUV (like my Explorer), they should put a Vulcan 500 in that garage for "lunch pail -do the job" type driving... :wink:

Almost forgot... here's some 9 pics of my humble Vulcan 500
