Don't Be Afraid Of The Big Bad Bike
I know this is an older photo but I wanted to post something about my motorcycle.
In May 2011 I traded my Honda Shadow 1100 for this bike, A 2006 Kawasaki Vulcan 2000 Classic LT. It had 1880 miles on it at the time of purchase. I wanted a bike that I could carry something on, what is commonly called a "bagger". "Bagger" is a subdivision of cruiser motorcycles. I was initially worried that this bike might be too big. A 2053cc v-twin, this motor is larger than several cars that I have owned. My concerns were unfounded. After an adjustment to the handlebars, it is quite comfortable. I'll write more later.
