Finally am posting some pics of my '02 Nomad. (Geez, twenty years in computers and I can't work a digital camera.......). Anyway, not the most horsepower-heavy of bikes, but beautiful and comfortable - a real head-turner.....

Enjoy
:smile:

in all fairness, you should really supply a box of tissues for those of us who start drooling over a sweet ride. I'm particular to the black over red scheme...very nice

Thx, spok ...
Love the '04 Vulcan, almost bought one but it was sold out from under me - same color as yours. I like my retro-styled ride, though. I get lots of nice comments around here. Next up - I'm going to rip the stock air system out and replace with a 40's teardrop Thunder air kit.

Kyhick1, I had a Honda cb550-four back in the day (70's) - thought it was the best bike ever! I'll bet you love your 550.....

IMHO....The Vulcans just have a great classic look that is easy to fall in love with. I'm in love with mine....and everyone else's I see. :)

Very Nice....and you did a good job with the digital camera. ;)

Nice lookin' ride!

As soon as I looked at the scenary in the background I thought, "Hey, that looks like Eastern N. Carolina." Weird. I lived around the Outer Banks for awhile a couple years ago.

Cheers.

Yeah, I've been here for about a year and a half. Great place to ride, not too many crazies (except on Friday afternoons and during tourist season)....I live right on Currituck Sound - good for boating, kayaking, etc.

Thanks!

Brancher,
I have the 04 Nomad. I love it. I really like the look of the bike with a solo seat. Looks low and clean. I'm thinking of setting mine up like that. Awesome ride.

Hey Brancher,

Beautiful bike. I'd love to be able to switch from solo to two-up, but my rear fender has that bracket on it for the passenger sear, I guess I could put one of those rails on it. What kind of pipes are those and how do you like em?

Thanks. I went ahead and bought a Corbin passenger pillion with the solo seat. It doesn't use the stock passenger bracket - just hooks to the center bolt and sits there. I'm getting ready to put a Yamaha rear fender rack (Roadstar) on the back fender for solo riding. The whole switch from solo to 2-up using this configuration is only 10 minutes or less.

I'd also like to get a short (mini) backrest, but Kawasaki makes it difficult to take those off and put 'em on again. I wish there was a quick-disconnect passenger backrest or a flange set I could use to adapt a backrest to.

The pipes are Cobra slashcuts. I really like 'em. They provide a healthy sound without being obnoxious - better (and lighter) than the stock system. Good roll-on sound, very clean, and only a low rumble at speed. Only drawback I see is the baffles are not removable like hte V&H's - so the sound is pretty much not alterable, and they are not as loud (so I'm told)..

Thanks for the kind words.

To be part of this...you all with the Nomads and Meanies are Killing me. I need to take on 2 part time jobs on top of the full time one I have so that I can add to the stable with a Meanie and a Nomad
