Description:
Made a new acquisition...

2009 Kawasaki Vulcan 900 Classic LT. 7k miles on the clock, and got it for a damn good price.

The shot I took of the front got washed out by a sun reflection... will have to try again.

Have I told you I now work for Parts Europe which is overseas division of Parts Unlimited/LeMans Corp.? You have no idea how much I learned about bikes since I got here and I plan on making a motorcycle license time and funds permitting (you can take the course and test in English). I will probably not own a bike in the forseeable future (living in a hired flat) but I'm determined to give motorcycling a crack. There is simply less and less fun you can have on 4 wheels with all the speed limits, responsible driving, blah blah.

#22, Huh... I'm pretty sure Parts Unlimited is the company my mechanic ordered the tires from. Weird coincidence.

In terms of fun within speed limits, that's why I'm happy to have an underpowered car (and this bike is relatively underpowered, as well)... I can can pretty much go full throttle, and feel like I'm driving/riding really aggressively, but I'm not breaking any laws :P

It'll probably take a month or so to arrive, but I went ahead and got a personalized plate for this thing... I was at the tax office to renew the registration on this and Demio, anyway.

#25, Nah, it was one I considered getting for the Mazda before I settled on Demio.

So, apparently, there are aftermarket suppliers that make Drifter-style front fenders for the 900...

#28, If I didn't see the bike, I was imagining a Saab 900 with plastic/fiberglass fenders with vents :P

This morning... the headlights start dimming... uh oh.

Then the speedometer goes straight to zero. What the...

Then the odometer starts blinking dashes, and the gauge starts dimming. Shit.

Then the engine starts hiccuping and losing power. Ooooooh crap.

Then the whole bike just DIES... all electrical power GONE. Son of a bitch.

Managed to coast into a parking lot and called a tow truck. Dammit. It's now home via an expensive tow... I'll see if I can charge the battery and nurse it over to my mechanic.

So, I guess I shouldn't be surprised... the bike's previous owner was obviously a do-it-yourself-er... I know that because the highway pegs were originally secured... with duct tape.
The auxilary lights on either side of the headlight? They were wired in with simple crimp connectors, no soldering or other means of securing the wires together.

...so the problem this time? Most likely, the previous owner had difficulty closing the battery compartment, so it looks like he might have squeezed one of the battery's terminals, or pushed on it, or something, to close the compartments... how it lasted 5000 miles (until last week)with no problem is a miracle. He has the replacement parts coming in tomorrow. Should be right as rain in 24 hours :D

#37, I saw a nearly-new Grand Cherokee on the way home from work today with license plate "THEJEEP". I was surprised that was still available.

#39, One hour at my mechanic's shop... clutch cable lubed, along with the throttle cables for good measure, tires pumped up, and coolant topped off... ready to roll again. Yay.

Considering getting the bike fully cleaned up and detailed... will run three figures probably, but I think it's worth it to try and stave off the encroaching corrosion...
