My new 2005 Kawasaki Vulcan 500

I just bought this last week, the bike was a little dirty but runs like a champ. With a little elbow grease it is looking good.

Very nice. I've always kind of wanted one of those. Something about the 500 has always appealed to me.

Yes, I have always liked them as well. And, when the guy told me he would take $1,200.. I could not resist. I really like how it rides, my versys (just bought on the 3/18/2011) is in the shop for a leaky water pump. And, I needed a bike in the garage. Thanks...

Just bought a new 2009 inventory one for my wife as a second bike. That makes 5 in the garage now. Talk about registrations and insurance now. Great bike and she will be traveling with it.
