PostSubject: The garage is getting crowded   Wed Oct 31, 2018 6:48 pm

If you ask my wife, she will tell you it's a sickness.  I probably wouldn't argue the point either, but if I'm sick, then there are worse illnesses.

Picked up another ride.  Wife asked me what do you need another bike for.  I told her it had nothing to do with need.  For that matter I don't NEED any of them.  

In this case its a pretty 2009 Kawasaki Vulcan 500, a bike that hasn't changed much in the 20 years it was made.  A twin cylinder, 500cc water cooled little cruiser.  Kinda like a Rebel on steroids.  I wanted something smaller to fart around on, not so small that it wouldn't do well on the highway, but small enough to toss around.

This particular bike had about 2500 miles on it and was really clean.  I'm probably the 3rd owner.  Two easy to service carbs if I need to, chain drive and a disc up front.  Pretty old school.

Everybody likes pics, here are a few:

Life is tough. Never enough bikes just not enough time to ride. There is only one solution double the garage size wife will understand. Justify by giving her a spot for her car Laughing

Nice collection. However a garage is never crowded it's just the bikes are parked tight enough together Twisted Evil

Good addition. This is a good-looking, reliable addition. Hard to beat that solid Kawi 500 twin that has been around many years. Good on highway and local roads. Suits your "needs" (wants) very well.

I had a Kawasaki EN450 - a predecessor of your bike - and found it a real fun bike with a fantastic engine. Here's a video I took with some stills of the bike at the end.

That is some pretty countryside.  Always gets me how the wide angle view of the go-pro makes it seem like you zooming around much faster than you really are.

I've got about a hundred miles on the bike so far.  Two things I don't care for  are the seat which starts to hurt after about an hour and the fact that it has no tach and the speedo is down on the tank.  I just got a combo tach/speedo from Kosa that has all the idiot lights on it.  That should be going on this weekend.  Not sure about the seat, I may have to get another airhawk for it too.
