2002 Kawasaki Vulcan 800

Torrance, California, July 23, — Listen, you may have to me out behind the shed and shoot me Last week I was puttering the road in some heavyish on our 900SS Ducati, and the thought to me I’d rather be riding the Vulcan 800 Classic I’d putting miles on lately. No.

The Ducati’s a little tough on the at subsonic speeds, and you have to gears now and then when speed increases or decreases.

Now my … had been molded the flat, old-man pancake by the Vulcan, and its nerves deadened by the pounding, it was a little painful the Ducati began trying to my hindquarters into two distinct again; like frostbite out.

Also, now that my fist-clenching muscles have developed to a where even self-service can no be thought of as safe …, able to cruise at my usual mph gait just as easily on the Vulcan as on the Ducati.

The Ducati is the of modern, uncomfortable furniture couples and New Yorkers have. The your dad’s Barcalounger. Why not be then?

Fashion, that’s The number one way you know you’re the hill is when you no longer how you look, because when you care how you look you don’t how other people think you that is—and then worse than being Death of Hope. When you yourself mall-walking in Rockports and shorts held up by a white and fanny pack, with white ear hairs sprouting Peter Rabbit, you know days are numbered, friend.

On the other hand, all the bettys in the who used to check you out on a nice and vice versa, are now all on the phone paying you no mind even on an MV Why bother?

Where was I? All that the Vulcan 800 is a really nice with a better, snappier than the Suzuki Volusia we a couple of weeks ago, suspension, and better ergoes for persons such as myself maybe since I didn’t riding the Vulcan until the Triumph America and the Volusia, credit should go to them for my cruiser musculature beforehand?)My luckily, is exceeded only by my

If you like the Vulcan, you should get functionally it’s a great transportation unit.

At $6,799 Vulcan retails for a lot less what you’d shell out for an SS its 805cc sports liquid-cooled, heads.

Really oversquare for a at 88 x 66.2mm, it’s actually a enjoyable engine to play coupled to an agreeable, wide-ratio box and a nice, light clutch. it in fourth or top gear (fifth), and easy enough to burble from 30 to over 100 mph with little fuss. A lone, Mikuni carburetor with an pump, no less, responds to the nicely once past the off-idle glitch (which one washer shoved under the would probably fix).

This one’s a 55-degree, twin, but with a counterbalancer and mounts. It runs plenty vibration is not a problem, and in truth the not at all bad. There’s a linkage-mounted hiding underneath the hard-tail swingarm, with four of travel,and an also nicely 41mm fork. Along the fat tires and a thick, nicely seat, the Vulcan gives up a suave ride.

Get aggressive round corners, though, and the pegs start dragging a bit even by cruiser standards.

than that, what’s not to Eee, well, we realize beauty is in the eye of the beholder, but nearly who beholds this beauty away wishing they It’s a Harley from Town. Those dual exhausts might be cool if not for the things in the ends which so reveal the true diameter of exhaust flumes; the motorcycle of getting caught stuffing down your pants.

The front fender is a tire

Maybe it’s not even the parts as much as the disharmonious way all fit together? This is one ugly but one which, in its defense, looks in family photos next to 800 Drifter and cousin 750 Vulcan.

But that’s just my opinion. My boy be seen in shorts if they extend past his knees. and piercings and shaving your are in. I always liked Camaros and do.

I’m afraid of Julia lips. Rap is a waste of oxygen. hopelessly out of touch. If you like the you should get one; functionally a great personal transportation
