such a nice looking bike

It looks like you are getting ready to leap off the bike though...are those the stock rearsets or have you pulled the footpegs up and back more?

I didn't think it was possible.
I was taking a break from studying for finals and came across people that are making cafe racers out of mopeds.
I posted a few, but you should Google them, its crazy!

Those are stock rear-sets, it's quite an aggressive postion. At 6'3" 200lbs though, I do make it look on the small side.

Here is the next article in my rebuild blog. I'm calling it a "re-rebuild" at this point! biggrin.gif:D:D

Nice shots kookz, they don't make you tape up headlight glass? or remove license plate? thats basically a thin blade waiting to slice someone's neck.

I sold my Kawi and looking at a Monster 1100 or a SF 848. Choices choices!

Does anyone have experiences with or opinions on the Kawasaki Vulcan 800 classic? I just received my license this week after taking a beginners motorcycle class, and I want a bike that can perform well enough to get me on the highway for 3-4 hour trips as well as something that I can use to zip around town. I have a very limited budget (under 2,500) and found a 2003 with 14k miles for 2,200 dollars. It seems like a fair price and I have put an offer in on it, but I'd like to see if you guys have any thoughts before I head over and actually buy it.

Here is a look at it.

That Vulcan is a better highway bike than it is a zip around town bike. If that is the kind of ride you want then the deal sounds good.

If acceleration and cornering are important to you then that one is not ideal. Keep in mind that great deals on motorcycles are out there to be had if you have the patience.

My dad recently bought a Yamaha Stratoliner 1900 cc, so I want something that would let me take some trips with him for some bonding time with the old man. I have a car to drive around town with, but I wouldn't mind taking the bike out every now and then for some casual rides or for a quick 10 minute ride to my campus for classes. I found a Sportster that I'm absolutely in love with, but I just don't have the extra cash to spend the 5k frown.gif. I guess I will be lucky to have anything on two wheels and I just want to get out there and have some fun.


This is the sportster that I truly want, but it's still out of my poor grad student price range at 4,500 dollars.
