Just curious and a question for those women riding this bike. Do you think a mid-sized cruiser like this would be improved with an optional cruise control? It bemuses me a bit that cruise control isn't offered on smaller bikes which sometimes are used for long distances on the open road. I ride a bike with cruise control and find it so much easier on my hands to be able to set cruise control and relax my "death" grip on the throttle.
As I said I am just asking for opinions as I want my partner to 1) get her license and 2) ride with me on a bike similar to the Vulcan S.

After reading your article, I'm very interested in the S. I've been riding for so many years and have had so many different bikes I've always loved the Kawies.
Where is there a dealership in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, Canada? I'd like to go and check one out. The price that was quotes on your info was probably in U.S. dollars, I would imagine the price is higher in Canada.

I have had my Vulcan S for about two weeks now. Ever since I first read about it I was intrigued with the concept of it being adaptable to different heights. Being 5 feet tall finding a bike that fit me and where I felt comfortable has been a challenge. I started out on a Vulcan 500 but wanted a bigger front tire and fuel injection. My husband's Vulcan 900 was just to big for me to feel comfortable on. We went down and traded the 500 in for the S. I love my S. It is very quick and I know I can keep up with my boys on their 900s.

I'm not fond of the throttle. It is very touchy, although I have traded out the grips for bigger ones and that seems to be helping also with the aid of a throttle boss but I am still struggling with maintaining the throttle being a newer rider I'm not sure how much of it is me or the throttle itself. Though reading Tricia's comment I'm sure my husband will take a look at adjusting the throttle to see if we can change that.

I got the reduced fit handlebars and seat but I didn't like the reduce fit shifter so I left the mid-reach shifter and my husband was able to adjust it for me to reach without a problem. We also took my passenger floorboards off his bike and but them on the so I have floorboards instead of footpegs. Love it much better.

The seat is a Vulcan seat -- not sure about that just yet. That is still up in the air for now. I am used to a pillow cushion type seat on our bike so I may need to find a gel seat cushion or something, but I do like how it pushes me forward to be able to reach better. I took my first big ride last weekend and did more than 200 miles on it and can say I love how easily I have adapted and love the ride.

I purchased my Vulcan S last month and simply love it. I am actually a 13-year bike veteran and this will be my fourth bike. I went down in bike weight and power on this bike but I have never had a bike where my feet are actually flat on the ground; I am 5 feet 3 inches and I am 68 years old so with my feet flat sure makes me feel so much more stable. My WOW group and my husband and I travel all over the US on our bikes and I am looking forward to my first trip on my new Pearl White baby!
