1999 Kawasaki Vulcan 750

Here you can find some pictures of my first scoot, a 1999 Kawasaki Vulcan 750. There are a few pictures taken a couple days after bringing her home as well as several pictures after the addition of some accessories. I became the proud owner on August 13th, 1998 at which time my Dad taught me how to ride in a parking lot nearby the dealership. After about 2-3 hours I was able to ride her home and a short time later I took the MSF (Motorcycle Safety Foundation) beginner riders course. I learned a lot of good information in this course which supplemented what my Dad had taught me very nicely. Granted you can't teach experience but at least you can be more aware. I rode my bike as often as I could and finally put it up in December for a winters nap. grin

I thoroughly enjoyed this motorcycle, the handling and power were fantastic to say the least. I never had a problem keeping up with anyone I rode with (including 1500 & 1600 cc scoots) and all you needed to do was to think about leaning and she would follow the curve of the road. Personally I found the stock seat to be quite comfortable the majority of the time although others have said they didn't like it.

'Tho I did trade her in for the 1500 Classic in June 2000 there will always be a part of me that longs for that special agility of the 750 Vulcan.
