Great Bike, but Kawasaki should have given it:
By John Yanzuk(Owner), May. 17, 2009
I purchased my VN900C on July 2, 2008 and have put 11,000 miles on it so far. 2008 model, black, and I am loving every mile with it, except when I get on the freeway and try to do more than 65mph.

First time rider
By Ray Brown(Owner), Mar. 7, 2009
The custom is a very easy bike to ride, has plenty of power to manuever on the highway to pass by cars and trucks, heavy enough that you do not feel like you will be blown off the road. It's my first time ever riding and the Vulcan is very comfortable for shorter people. I have a lot of confidence i... Read Full Review
