6 foot 4 to big for a Nomad?

I’ve been looking to come back to bike for a while and was considering a Harley, when I came across the Vulcan 1600 Normad at a bike show and thought what a cool bike. My problem is that I’m 6ft 4in and need to try the bike out to see if it’s OK, but the small numbers imported into the UK means that its not possible to test ride a Vulcan. I’m concerned that the pulled back bars may make the bike too uncomfortable for me – ie make me lean back too far. The only bikes that I tried out are Harley’s – Road King (OK), Fat Boy (Great) and V-Rod (pain in the ****). So any 6 footers out there who can help out with advise would be great!

6'4" is not too big

I went through your pains recently. I rode a Harley superglide for years and quit when kids and family came along. Kids are gone and I am back. I am 6 foot five inches and weigh in at 270 pounds. I tried everything, all the Harleys, Victory's, Goldwings/VTX, Yamaha's ... and found the Kawasaki Vulcan Classic 1600 to be the most comfortable. I have not tried the Vulcan 2000 yet, but may upgrade at the next opportunity. Good Luck!
