G'day to the netriders, I am just about to buy a new Nomad. I am in my forties and have had motorbikes for over thirty years off and on! Bikes are always changing but I love riding and now want to share it with my wife and kids, so after many test rides on many bikes (tourers and cruisers), big and small, I have decided to buy a new Kawasaki Vulcan Nomad 1700. I know it is a big bike but I am a tad chubby!! I have a bad hip from previous racing accident so I love the low bikes (cruisers), I want new (I have saved the cash) so I don't have to worry about the history, and if I play my cards right I will trade the bike in every five years for a new one, is this a wise decision? I look forward to hearing the different opinions of people around this wide land we love to ride in.
