The VF750C Magna is a great machine. I’ve missed that V-4 engine since I sold my last Magna. The other bikes I had after it just didn’t quite have the same mojo. And by mojo, I mean power band. It’s wide power band lets the bike pull in every gear without working it. It’s not anxious, there’s nothing frantic about it. It’s comfortable cruising in town, and blasting down the highway. I do wish it had one more gear on the tall end, but it’s no big deal because the RPM’s go quite high.
Filled up the tank, 9 bucks. Vehicle Inspection, 9 bucks. Insurance, 17 bucks.
This kind a cheap to live with cost is awesome. Tax on the bike to get the new plates was 150 bucks, but I expected that. I’m completely and utter broke now, but everything’s golden and I have a full tank that’s going to get me to work for a week. My truck, to fill up the gas tank for a week, almost a hundred bucks.
To ride… through the twists, along the straights… relaxed… chillin in the saddle… Guys… Guys… Guys… Why the hell did I wait so long to get another bike?
I still need to get some decent leathers, a brain bucket, and good gloves before I do any long range riding. I am going to be eating PBJ’s for breakfast, lunch, and dinner for the next two weeks. Worth it. And with reports of gas going up to 6 bucks a gallon – I am very glad I got this bike now. The news reports recently mentioned that with gas prices going up, more and more people are getting motorcycles and scooters. So if you guys want a good used bike – get one now before they are all gone.
Okay, this is the last post about me gushing about bikes for awhile. This isn’t a bike blog… It’s a gun blog. Gun Content will resume shortly.
