    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Power, Style, Price
    Cons: Seat, Clearance

    Summary: I've always like these bikes. All the Japanese manufacturers make one. For Honda, it's the Spirit, Yamaha has the Virago. When they first came out they all got tagged "Wanna-bees", and that was 15 years ago! Well, maybe their owners wanted ... read more

    Pros: Looks and sounds great. Excellent performance, mileage, and driveability.
    Cons: Rear shock adjustment REALLY difficult. Really Kawasaki??

    Summary: After a long break (raising a family), I finally got back into bikes with a used '01 Vulcan 800. I couldn't be happier. When I got it, I told myself I would just ride it for a year to make sure I still enjoyed riding. Well, 3 months and 1600 miles ... read more

    Pros: Great styling and quality. You want a Hog look-alike? Get this screaming Kow!
    Cons: Rakish seating position makes for apprehensive handling.

    Summary: Move over Harley, this H-D Wanna-be has even the hog riders wondering! More than once, a Harley owner has asked what year my hog was. In fact, one even said he had an H-D just like mine! The surprise when they found out the Hog was really a Kow - ... read more
