99' Valkyrie/North Central Indiana
If you wanting to ride long trips and two up alot the Vulcan will probably be more comfortable but you won't gain anything in performance but you will get a 100 lbs. more in weight. Power to weight ratio 96' Vulcan 1500 Classic 1:15.5, 06' Spirit 1:12.5. I guess I'm saying, not a good deal as others have also spoken of known issues with the Kawasaki.
