Vulcan 200cc

I bought one a couple of months ago. Really like it so far. Took a little over a 1000 mile trip to Highland NC area this past weekend. Pretty comfortable...lot of power. I had a 1100 Virago before this and loved it. Had gone out to Colorado afew years ago on it. Hit deer at night in OK and ended trip. Had it restored,..and two months hit dog at night here near home! Ironically, I had ordered new bike (Vulcan) that very morning. Laughed and told Ambulance staff that that little irony. 'Course, I'm glad I did cause otherwise I might have not gotten back on the horse quite as quickly this time! ha! Overall I LOVE the bike. Gets a lot of attention even from the Harley guys. Only complaint I have is a extremely high "whistle" that I'm hearing that Shop and Kawaski rep says they can't hear. Thought I was going nuts,..but friends say they can hear also. Want to find out if other V2K owners have heard such on their bikes.
