Hello Everyone!
I am John Beasley from Athens, AL. I ride a 2004 Kawasaki Vulcan Nomad. My wife rides a Harley Street 750, and she never lets me live it down that I ride a Kawi and she has a Harley. Thanks for allowing me to be a part of your forum

Hi John!

Welcome from Arkansas!

Enjoy your ride!

How does your wife like her Street 750...besides the HD brand thing?

She loves it. She is only 5' 0" so it fits her great. It is her first bike and likes it because it is so light. She sat on several doorsteps, but to her they felt too top heavy.

Welcome aboard! Just south of you, Hartselle myself. Good choice of a bike for you. Love my ol' 1500. Glad to see you have a Misses that rides with you. And tell her we hold it against her being on a Harley.
