I was out of motorcycling since high school (1967)until March 2000 when I bought my Vulcan 1500A10. I thought since I had not been on a bike this size for some time, it would be a difficult to handle. After taking the Pennsylvania Motorcycle Safety Foundation beginner course, I was back to comfort level within a week. This is one great bike. It quick, nimble and looks great. My only complaints are (1) it needs a fifth gear, and (2) aftermarket accessories are difficult to retro fit this bike. But in it's defense, it goes as fast as anyone needs to go, and second it looks great without all the extra crap you don't need anyway.

I bought my 89 1500A in 98 is only my 2nd. Bike and compared to my old v-45 magna it's a great ride! I love the handling and its nice passing power. It's well balanced and has a comfortable stock seat, there have been times I've spent 12hrs. On it. I have now put over 13000 miles on this bike. The one thing that needs to be watched on this bike is the gas tank! The forward tank mountings are "c" shaped and welded to the tank. This is where vibration damage will cause a leak. At the time I bought my 1500A it had 13,200 miles. And the tank was leaking. I have since found 3 other 1500A's that leak in the same spot. Tank Kreem will seal it but careful not to plug the tank vent! I did that and I still haven't gotten the vent clear.

There are three things wrong with the bike. 1st, it needs a different seat (I recommend AIR RIDER). 2nd, the bike does back fire and there is no cure for it. 3rd, and most of all, it needs a 5th gear. Otherwise it does just what it set out to be...a Crusier. Good gas mileage in the range of 50/55mpg and when you get in the trottle 35/39. I love the bike.... No valves to adjust...very little maintenance. With the seat change and foot pegs a very comformable ride. Oh, you might want to add a back rest for those long rides without a passenger. But, if you are looking for a good looking bike that's in the right price range(a lot cheaper than a Harley with less work) I would recommend the Vulcan 1500 A (88). PS. A great performing bike............
