Love the article. I learned to ride at 52 years old. Started on a Rebel, then to a Buell then to a Vulcan 500, which I loved, then to a Sportster and did NOT like it, then to a Vulcan 800 which I rode for 6 years and really enjoyed. It was a complete customized bike, belt drive, hydro. brake, floor boards, chromed everywhere. It was beautiful and we removed any evidence that it was a Kawasaki and fooled even HD dealers.

Well, as I've aged, I kept remembering the fun I had on my Vulcan 500 and the get-up-and-go it had (Hubby re-jetted it). So, I decided I had to ride one again. Had a fantastic offer on the 800, so off she went and my hubby has just finished the work on my 500, except for the engine guard that he made and is now off getting chromed.

I have a single seat he made and we had covered, and he re-jetted it. He is thinking about chroming the forks, and changing the mufflers to a Honda 650 for their sound and maybe even changing the chain to a belt drive. However, with all that said I love this bike. We've had three 500s (our son learned on one) and with each my hubby converted to a single seat; it's a nice profile.

Am so glad I found this site. I love reading the reviews! I'm a brand new rider, in my BRC as I type. Have been looking at what bikes are good for beginners. My boyfriend did tell me not to go too small so I wouldn't feel the need to upgrade too soon. I found the Vulcan 500 and just love the look. Love the reviews. I will have my eye out for one.

The Vulcan 500 is a great bike. I ride a Harley 883, but my partner rides a 500. I had recent back surgery, so our rides are a short distance before we have to stop and stretch. Sometimes my partner and I will switch bikes because the Vulcan is so much more comfortable than my bike. I love my Harley, but for long distance and enough power you cannot beat the smooth ride of the Vulcan 500. It is a great bike for all levels of riders. I cannot understand why they stopped making them.

Just got my M endorsement (first time on a bike and in my late 50s) and am chomping at the bit to take out the used Vulcan EN500 my husband and I bought. I am actually looking for a used 250cc Rebel or Virago to putter around on in town. Thought it might be an easier bike (basically in the city 35 mph streets for a 5 mile commute each way) but am hearing more and more from people like you that once I get used to the Vulcan. I won't want to go smaller. Good info! Thanks!
