    I never drove a motorcycle until the MSF class, a 250 Rebel. I bought a Vulcan 500. It has the same engine as the Ninja 500. I am just 5’5″ and about 165 but it is a great bike for me as a beginner and I am in no hurry to move up since my bike is good at highway speeds.

    Welcome and keep rockin.

    Congratulations. I went thru the course on my birthday last year and bought my bike 5 days later. I wish I would have started when I was younger.

    Keep rockin!

    I was in D.C. for the 4th of July weekend, really about 5 days. There were so many motorcycles, I was missing my Kawasaki. Seems like it would be fun to ride in your city.

    Keep Rockin!

    I hear so many people saying “it’s just a matter of time”. Well like on TV they only share the bad news. I would love to hear from riders who never wrecked after a life of riding and hear how they managed that.

    I wonder what the article said about a gray helmet.

    You can add a Texas boy to the Vulcan 500 list. I have had my 2007 for 11 months now. It is my first bike and it handles great. I weigh about 167 and only bench, well if I can handle it I know you can too.

    Keep Rockin!

    He told me he use to have one. I had never rode a bike before the MSF class. After that I got a Vulcan 500. It was a little scary at first to ride home when all I had been on was a little Rebel on the parking lot at MSF but I believe it has been a real confidence building bike for me. I have heard from people who got too much bike and did not want to ride. I love the 500 Vulcan.

    you considered yourself tall for a female, so out of curiosity how tall are you? I am short and that is part of the reason I did not want to go with sport bike catagory.

    Glad you took the course. I took it in July and had never ridden any more than a mini bike on the beach. Other than riding a bicycle which is one of my hobbies. I bought the Vulcan 500 and I love it. I wanted to get something way affordable like the Honda Rebel but was advised by many that I would not be wise to highway commute on something that small. So I ended up with the Vulcan 500, pleanty of power, light weight, comfortable seat position, great mpg, and affordable. The chain is messy though, I know the V-Star is a shaft drive but cost more.

    Feel free to message any questions specific to the Vulcan 500.
