Posted On: 02/07/14
I'm technically the second owner when I acquired the Kawasaki Vulcan in 2011 from a female who never earned her M-class license. The motorcycle only had 283 miles. I've driven it around town and has been nothing but reliable. It is not fuel injected but even in the winter time, I just pull out a bit of choke and let it warm up for about a minute. This is a great starter motorcycle and has the high rev of the Ninja 500 but the easy cruiser laid back style. I hate to sell it, but it's time to move on.
