I am surprised nobody has mentioned gear? A must have. Its the time of year you can find used bikes. Take your time and get what you want!

Mike (mohawk guy) and I got in an argument the second day of class because he was telling the class that loud pipes were in no way related to safety. This was 5 minutes after he told the class anything you can do to make yourself more noticeable (like putting stupid reflector stickers on your helmet) makes you safer. Of course all the instructors rode rice burners that were about as loud as my wife's hair dryer. He went as far as to say loud pipes should be outlawed because they annoy other people. I agreed to disagree. Total BS to be teaching new riders that IMHO.

Get a Vulcan 1500, 1600 or 2000, Many good bikes on Craigs List
Biker Babe said it best, you will be wanting more power on the highway. RPM will be higher than most cruisers. Weight difference is not much

Ok, thanks for all of your input guys.
I am now riding 07 Honda Shadow Spirit VT750C2.
:notworthy
I only had time to ride about 30 min. today but I was having a blast!
I just had this big grin on my face thinking to myself 'where the was I for last 17 years?'. It was fun!
I even thought about going up to 1100 or 1300, but chickened out...
This will have to last me for next year or two I guess.
Enough time to get my groove back before moving up.

Again, thanks for all of your input.

CONGRATULATIONS!!! You won't be disappointed. I rode my 750 for two years before hubby bought the Fatboy and I took his 1100. Still miss both of them!!! The 750 had the looks and the 1100 had the power. On another note, never had a lick of trouble with either Honda. Both were well maintained and with the exception of regular maintenance expenses, tires, chain, etc., they were fairly economical machines.
