I returned to riding after 25 years. My last bike was a Vulcan 750. I looked long and hard before I purchased my 950T, and love it. I ride 95% solo, the 950T is a very good solo bike, but is a decent 2up bike for the times my wife rides with me. IMHO the VSTARS are a great line, with the 950T being hands down the best "bang for you buck" bike out there. I can ride all day long with any of my friends that have Harleys and a few Goldwings in the group.
