  • I'm a Vulcanian too !!

    Hi all.

    Finally I took this VN900, it's a 2011 model year with just 4135 Km on.

    I've put only 100 Km so far, but it looks promising and am satisfied
    I come from a muscle-bike (Suzuki Boulevard M109R), naked (Kawasaki Z750) and adventure tourer (Kawasaky Versys 1000) and I was looking for a bike just to relax and ride to see the surrounding landscape.

    I took away the stock fairing (I want to feel all the air against me) and the passenger backrest.

    Now I'm looking for saddlebags and probably also a new handlebar - the stock one is nice to look at, but I feel cramped when riding on strict bends like on mountain roads (I find the grips against the stomach and I prefer a larger and lower one - a kind of dragbar, but not too narrow).

    I'm from Italy and enjoy motorcycling all the year around

    Cheers folks

    Welcome to the Vulcan family from Western Massachusetts. I'm sure you will enjoy the forum. A lot of great people here. I have an '08 900 LT Classic which I bought new and just love it. Some of my upgrades have been crash bar and pegs, cobra pipes, mustang seat and backrest. This year I'm going to look at hard bags or passenger floorboards. It is a great bike so good luck with yours.
