Hello folks. I am new to riding and one of my friends is really pushing me to get a Harley Road King. I am 5'7" and 165 lbs. I wasn't even able to balance his HD road king even with the lowest seat, i was on my tippy toes! Then we looked at Harley Sportsters which was "ok". I saw this 98' Vulcan 800A with 27,000 miles for sale, looks like it is in perfect condition. Beautiful bike. Asking is $2,250. Obviously I need to go take a look at it but would this be a better bike to start off riding?? I'm not looking to spend a lot of money and just want to practice and ride around.
