I had a Vulcan 2000 for a short while, now that was some power. I remember after I added an air kit, the tank would lift slightly on hard acceleration. With a tall windshield I got that bike up to 130 on the speedo once. Was probably about 118 or so since we all know metric cruiser speedos are a bit fast.
My NEO was the dark red, I used to get asked all the time who painted it and I'd pause for a minute then say Honda.
