@Robert I had one fixed about 20 years ago and it made riding the bike painful, But when I went to see the gp I lied to them about how much pain I was in because I didn't want to be off work for weeks and had to wait another year or so before the op date came through..... I should have told them how painful it was as the operation was no bother at all, just a bit sore afterwards
Technical and tyres
It was last night we found it, went out for a ride with a friend, mentioned the issue to him also and he went "Give me your glove", gave it to him and hey presto zero movement. His face dropped when he saw that.
Now that's two people confirmed it's the chain!
Have bought Rizoma levers for my Ducati Monster 821 one year ago and the break lever was not retracting leaving the piston stuck and almost had an accident because of it. Took the bike to Ducati which attested the fault and recommended an immediate replacement. Have contacted Rizoma UK distributor who took no responsibility for it and because of it I DO NOT ENDORSE NOT RECOMEND RIZOMA, as it will not assume responsibility for their faulty items. be aware!
A good idea to spice up world superbore bikes is to put a sex doll on the back, or even better put the girl on the front. I followed the series from 1989 but it's a total bore now it's time may come around again but with GP racing as good as it is I doubt you will see superbore bikes as popular as it was in the 90's.

Sorted the luggage options on Kawasaki Vulcan S (650)
Hello my fellow mid life crisis, I am somewhat in a similar situation or was, I was 48 years old & the last time I rode a bike I was in my late teens. I spent a few weeks out in India at the start of this year & out there everyone rides a bike because its the only way to make progress on the roads.... and every day I looked out the taxi window & thought 'got to get a bike' My biking history was a 50cc twist & go, then a GS125 so nothing very big. As I sat & watched all the Indians wizzing about on all manor of bikes I started to think what I wanted & like you a cruiser came to mind because I wanted something to ride that was comfortable & not make me break too many of the laws of the land. I spent about 8 weeks looking at what to buy, visiting a lot of bike shops & reading up on tinterweb & finally settled on a Kawasaki Vulcan S 650. It is based on the ER6 which is a very good middle weight road bike so it goes very well & for a cruiser it also goes round corners very very well. some out there might laugh & say 'girls bike' as the seat height is low so I can get both feet flat on the floor when I stop but for a born again like me or someone completely new to riding a bike & dealing with the weight of a 650 it is ideal. Take a look
