    Just bought this 2011 Vulcan 900 Classic SE on Tuesday.
    It only had 1538 miles on it. Just love it.
    I'm selling the XS650, but I'm not in a hurry! I had to replace the rear wheel bearings last week, started to hear a squeak. Sprocket side bearing was bad. Replaced with ALL Balls seal and bearing set. All is good.

    Thanks Carbon. I ran that by the wife about my son riding and that's not looking too good!
    I wish I could keep both,but I don't have the room. I agree,they are pack animals!
     
  9. Let the good times roll. From a hardtail to cruiser. Fun to build but not to ride?

    No, it's fun to ride my little XS,but not for very long or far. The bike is a hoot around town and for short trips.:bike: The need to ride to work every once in awhile and to cruise with my buddies in comfort for longer rides were the main reasons. Hey man, don't "HATE" on my hardtail!:wink2:
     
  11. Hey John, loving the new one.
    Dont sell the XS! tuck it away in that shop of yours - the wife will never know!
    You know you'd regret it :)

    Hey Paul! I know I'll regret it already.
    The fact is I need to sell it to cover some of the cost of the new bike and some accessories.

    Yeah, I'll check in Carbon. I do love the fuel injection, but the XS is still closer to my heart.
