You're probably right about that. It's a good motorcycle, though. A little too heavy. I think it would have sold better if it were a little more practical, with hard bags.

I think the Nomad is a little more practical with hard bags, isn't it?

I've ridden all the mega cruisers. They're fun but gigantic. Harleys are nimble by comparison.

Well, yes, but the point is that the Nomad doesn't have the power or torque that the V2K has.

It doesn't have the girth either.

Oh, it's power and torque you want? Then you need to ditch the V-twins altogether and go for the ZX-14 based Concours. The FJR1300 will do that trick too. Or better yet the Rocket3. And before AirHawk shows up there's always the total torque king.... the irreplacable inimitable BossHoss 504 with dual Roots blowers.

You and your long, flowing, manly locks beat me to it.

It's the ONLY "Man's Bike". All others are just Girlsters. Even the 350 'Hoss.........

The Voyager is actually quite agile, and so is the new T-Bird.
