2006 Kawasaki Vulcan 500

It took me a lot of courage to get my own bike, so this Kawasaki Vulcan 500 was perfect for me. It has great get up and go, and keeps up on interstates like it was nothing. The weight is light and the seat height perfect for my 5'2" frame. I never feel overwhelmed by it, but it's got enough power so I don't feel like I'm riding a scooter either (no offense to scooters)..

In a few years I plan on going a little bigger..probably the Vulcan 900. But for now, me and my bike do just fine!

Love it too :)

I too have the same bike, only red. I, however, am a little taller... 5'10" and I find the bike a little on the small side. I find my knees cramp a little and my tailbone aches. I am looking for a single saddle seat that I can mount a little further back on the bike which I think would solve the problem. Otherwise, it has great get-up-and-go and I keep up with my husband/friends without any problems. Will likely upgrade to the Vulcan 900 custom in a couple years.
Happy riding :) Nicole.

Vulcan 500 Owner As Well
by: Jenna

I got an 09 Vulcan 500 last September and I absolutely adore it. I'm only 5'4" so height was something I was definitely looking at and width. I test rode a V-Star 650 and it just felt way too wide! I checked the Kawasaki site for 2010 500's and haven't seen anything on there as of yet, I hope they continue to make it, it's a great bike!
