Hey!
I just started riding, got my motorcycle 10 days ago.
Already logged 600mi on it, and figured I would join an online forum.
It's just a '07 500 Vulcan, a basic starter bike, loving it:biggrin:

So hello!
Look forward to chatting with ya all.

Thanks!
I took the MSF course before I got my bike, did alot of research and chose the 500 because I figured I was better off getting something small and moving up rather then starting big and moving down.

Only photo I have right now is 2 days after I got it. Parked it at a friend's for about 2 hrs, came outside and it had started snowing and it was covered!

Yeah the forecast didn't call for bad weather so I didn't bring my cover with me. Learned that lesson REALLY quick..

Even better was driving in that stuff, I learned more in 45 minutes then the MSF course ever taught me..

It's not just a 500 Vulcan, It IS a 500 Vulcan.

Enjoy!

Good on you for the MSF!

I can ride mine year round here (VA). It is my daily ride to work. There was one morning... was not light yet... there was just the tiniest fine flurry of snow. It was the most awesome thing to be riding thru that. Beautiful. Like flying past stars.

Lol, loving it.
Sorry, my dad and friend's give me crap cause I bought a 500 "non-rocket" so I tend to not think of it as a pimp bike. But, I love it. 1300mi already. It's getting cold though, my 5hr on her today got me chilled. Serves me right for only wearing a jacket when it was 50..

Thanks for the warm welcomes, and I am learning a ton from reading all the old threads. Maintenance on the chain was, well, not easy for me, haha..

when they say cover your bike in winter, I don't think they mean with snow. don't be ashamed of what bike you ride, at least you ride, it's a start.

Oh how little they know about Vulcan 500. Get some more miles on your experience meter then find a nice long stretch of road and hold on to 2nd or 3rd gear a little longer, let those rpms climb and you will know what I mean by hold on. :smile:

Be safe out there.

Two wheels on the road - that's what counts! Sounds like you are already having fun - shoots us some pics when it isn't "covered" :)

You just needs a one piece suit :) I'm still working at keeping the fingers toasty. It's always something :)
