Kaw Vulcan 1700 Classic LT
May. 22, 2013

By Rodg(Owner), Apr. 24, 2010
Just picked up my new 09 1700 Classic LT and am not pleased with it. I only had the opportunity to test ride it on the dealer's parking lot,that part went fine, it wasn't until I paid for it and took it on the highway that I realized I should not have bought it. Everything was fine until I got to 5t... Read Full Review
