Took the day off yesterday, ostensibly to work on my bike and finish installing that oil cooler. However, it got up to 99* in the shade and my shed was just too hot. So, instead I called up a buddy and spent the day goofing off. Went to the Harley shop in Brandon, found a new independent mechanic and decided to stop by the Fun Bike Center in Lakeland. Got a good look at Kawasaki's new Vulcan Vaquero. I'm not sure if it is a knock off of the RoadGlide or the Street Glide. It looks more like a Street glide to me but when up close, the inner fairing is designed more like the RoadGlide and is attached to the frame rather than the forks. Didn't get to ride it but did hear one running. The bike had Vance and Hines pipes and actually sounded good. That 50* vtwin didn't have the lope of HDs 45* but it sounded good. The bike, overall, looked nice, although those holes in the fairing on each side of the headlight are a little too "retro" for me, I think the fairing would look better without them, or, install fog lights. The dash is just too weird for me..it has retro looking analog mixed with digital..just doesn't look right to me. The fit and finish seemed comparable to HD, although I'm sure the paint is not as good or as thick. I will say this, the bike was priced at $14,999.00, it came with cruise control, MP3 connectivity, a 5 yr warranty and a bunch of other goodies. Much more than the MoCo includes in their base price.
