Notes from an Enthusiastic / Vetean Rider
By Brian Tassone(Owner), Oct. 2, 2009
After 40+ years of riding about everything made in the cruiser style I settled on the Vulcan Nomad 1700. Actually my wife bought it but I like it as well. It has the weight at 833 lbs. and the power is adequate at 1700cc for a heavy bike. I love the color (Burgandy/gold) and there is an abundance of... Read Full Review

Live long and Ride
By EyeMagic in San Diego(Owner), Sep. 10, 2009
This is the classic look, feel and ride that one dreams about as a young lad.

I compared all the brands i.e. Harley, Victory etc. and zeroed in on the Nomad.

Price,insurance cost,style,handling power and road manners this has it all over the competition. I've ridden all my life on many different b... Read Full Review

My 09 Nomad
By James Irving(Owner), Sep. 15, 2009


My wife and I took a long cruise through the mountainous terrain of Idaho, about 700 miles. We found the bike to be comfortable, maneuverable and responsive. When we began the bike had about 1100 miles on it and averaged about 36 mpg. It handled well and gave us absolutely no problems. However... Read Full Review

Another Great Vulcan
By Bill Grafton(Owner), Apr. 14, 2010
I upgrade my old 2005 Kawasaki Vulcan 750cc to the new 1700cc Nomad and I'm glad I did. What a great bike this is. Nothing wrong with the old one but I wanted to step up. I have over 600 miles on the new bike. It has everything you need and then some. I will be adding highway pegs and speakers ... Read Full Review
