You know, I was reading the latest edition of Rider magazine. They have a comparison test of the Vulcan 900, V-Star 950, Honda 750 ACE, and Suzuki C-50. The Suzuki won. I don't know what they were smoking, but evidently it's pretty potent. I guess I am biased. There is a Vulcan 1600 Nomad waiting for me in the parking lot. Right next to it is a Vulcan 900 LT. I don't know who owns it, but it's a beautiful bike. It seems to me though that Big K needs to get a bit more serious about it. First of all, lose those silly spoked wheels and get some cast wheels and tubeless tires on that thing. Now let's lose the little leather baggies and put some locking hard luggage on it. Not those flimsy things they are using on the 1700 Nomad, but something more substantial. How about the side loading bags from the Vaquero? What do you think? Would a serious 900cc touring cruiser succeed in the American market? I think it would.
