Well, If i'm gonna own a bike, i'm gonna need to know what the hell I am talking about. I hope I can learn a lot from this forum and from people who have owned this bike before me! I love that this is a thing! By the way, I am used to balling my bike a boulevard, do the superfans call it a volusia or can i continue calling it a boulevard without getting chastised?
Thanks All

Welcome from Kennesaw GA!

The Volusia was the predecessor of the Boulevard. It is carbureted, and the last year it was made was 2004, I believe. You're right to call it a Boulevard, although some will refer to it as a Bully and the Volusia as a Vol.

Music, Motorcycles, and Family... Nothing else really matters in life!

Welcome from Florida
The Volusia is the carb'ed predecessor of the C50.
This group will help ya when it can with the C90, but you can learn lots of non-motorcycling stuff here too.....good or bad ? You decide

Greetings from Indiana.

I can head East or West, it doesn't matter as long as it's on 2 wheels.

I call mine "Black Beauty". When called to be more specific, I call it a Boulevard C50. But really, unless you're looking for specific parts any of the "family" names they've had will do. We'll know what you're talking about!

welcome to the family here....fell free to call it whatever you like...more important your duties as a newbie here require coffee pot duty for 30 days...if the pots found empty, you go on don't want to go on probation...would be nice if you leave a banana by the coffee pot...enjoy and ride safe.

Whats the big hurry...slow down and enjoy the ride!
