I have always loved motorcycles, especially cruisers. I promised my wife I would not purchase a bike until our kids were older. I had some serious health issues and decided it was time or I may never get a chance. I took the MSF course in October 2015, but hurt my right wrist a couple weeks after successfully completing the course. Looked for a bike for almost a month after sitting on the Vulcan Vaquero 1700. I researched the bike, watched more than 100 hours of videos, and talked to every person I could about the bike.

I bought the bike in November 2015, started riding in December 2015. I have more than 5,600 miles on it. People told me not to buy a big bike, however, after 20 years as a combat soldier I knew with patience and training I would be OK. The Army did not issue me a small anything. Training made it possible. I love this bike and ride it every day possible. This was not the ideal way to decide on a bike but it worked for me. I was a drill sargent for three years, an infantry for 20 years, and a patriot forever. Hoooah!

I purchased the Vaquero in October 2011, my first bike. Rode it home the day I purchased. I have put more than 16,000 miles on it in the first year. I love the Vaquero. This was the right bike for me.

My wife now rides a 2003 Vulcan Nomad with the Mustang seat/backrest and loves it. She cam plant both feet flat on the ground. I am really trying to get her interested in the Vaquero, but the stock seat is a bit high for her, and the Mustang seat doesn't lower it any, as she sat on a friend's Vaqureo that had that seat setup. No demo-ride yet, but many "test-sits" at dealers.

I bought my Vaquero on January 27, 2012. It was the BEST decision I made! I love this bike and all that it offers me. I've been riding for 32 years and have owned and ridden many motorcycles including Gold Wings and Harleys. This bike has not disappointed me in the least. I ride it every day and am totally blessed that living in the state of Florida affords me this ability. I love my Vaquero!
