From that moment, I was on shaft-drive as a reasonable compromise for a balancing ease-of-maintenance with and performance.

This brings us to the Vulcan VN750. True to my it is also a shaft-drive. (Later switched to belt final-drive) But I was in several other ways selecting it. I like the fact it has dual front disc Seems like there is no anymore for a bike of this weight to have only a

Even though this is a 750, highway speeds are not a nor are entrance ramps or emergency I thought that a 750 might be for a 200 lb. man, but it’s really not in case, and I don’t feel I’m missing anything by not a 1500+ cc behemoth.

After I it with official Vulcan-logo’d and a front windshield, the touring was complete. This bike has been a joy, and will to be one for years to come.

So much for the Now for a few bad things.
