Sorry to hear about your troubles. I wish you all the best. Do what you have to do. You probably already know I ride a sidecar rig for somewhat similar reasons. It beats the hell out of giving it up.

Sorry to see that you're selling your Vulcan. A few of us got to see and hear it on the last Wild Hogs and it is an impressive bike Greg. I hope that you settle in up north soon and the health improves. I'm sure once you settle in and you feel a lot better, that you will be in the local bike shops looking at a possible purchase.
Cheers, Tezza

Sorry to hear that your health is not good Greg and sorry about the bike needs to go. But health comes first. The northern climate may suit you much better. Good luck with the sale, and I hope you get everything you wish for.

Life’s journey has many twists and turns ... so all the best for whatever lies ahead Greg.

When I did the big lap in 2016 I met a couple of grey nomads that had been on the road, continuously, for over 7 years. It’s a big country ... go forth and enjoy!

Wish you all the best Greg! Stay here, even without a bike!

Thanks Guys for the comments - I haven't sold the bike as yet and may actually trade it in on something a little different and much lighter and easier to handle - I am thinking along the lines of an Adventure Bike around the 200kg - 220kg range which would be 60kg - 80kg lighter than the Vulcan at 278kg curb/wet weight - it does take some muscling around at times and if I drop the damn thing I would struggle getting it up by myself - already had to do it once when I overbalanced at the mail box out the front of the property here - and I struggled back then getting my left leg out from under the bike and then getting the bike upright again - I don't want that sort of thing with a heavy bike again..
So an Adventure bike along the lines of a BMW F800GS or Similar - and there are a few to choose from - might be a good thing for me too as I would like to be able to head off up some dirt roads and tracks to see some of the back country around here and other places that I am not game to go on the Vulcan with the belt drive - I busted 2 belts on my '86 HD Electraglide years ago and know the sinking feeling of seeing a strip of black licorice laying behind the bike and the bike having to be trailered to a workshop for repair ... Not Good when stuck in an out of the way back road up in the mountains ... I will be going for a chain or shaft drive bike in future - I Do Not want to stop riding as it gives me so much pleasure to be out in the sunshine seeing the country being on a motorcycle of some kind - keeps the mind active and the reflexes in reasonable order ...

Greg, whatever bike you get put a set of crashbars on it. An additional benefit is having a place to add some extra foot pegs.

Hi Edwin - If I was going to keep the vulcan I would put a Crashbar on it but I have decided on a lighter bike as I am not getting any younger or stronger and have to realise my limits before I get myself into trouble out there as I usually ride alone - that way I only have myself to please and can go where I want when I want and at whatever pace I feel like doing .... there are so many dirt roads around here up in the back country that I would like to check out on a bike and I don't want to get a Trail Bike - just a road orientated bike with decent tires on it that can handle some off road capabilities .... I used to do this sort of thing when I first started riding back in the mid '60's and I had an absolute ball doing it too ... I like exploring the out of the way places - just me - the bike and a swag and some food for the overnight stop/s - Great fun camping out for a night or two .... I am looking forward to getting out there amongst it once again albeit at a much more relaxed pace .... Smiley-laughing
Crash Bars, Panniers of some kind - probable a soft kind ? and a top box fitted across the pillion seat, giving me a backrest and shifting the weight from hanging over the rear end of the bike ... NO Rough Riding for me - just the light to moderate trails for me - I might even get back into photography once again and take some piccys of my adventures to post as well .... should be an enjoyable way to end my riding days .... I figure I will have maybe 4 or 5 years left in me yet and I want to enjoy them to the max .... Smiley-laughing

Thanks Edwin - There certainly are some Nice Machines - I have looked at a good proportion of these bikes and there are a couple for consideration that I am contemplating - With a Very restricted budget in mind - I can't afford quite a lot of the bikes on the market, and I am limited to buying a Used Bike - a New one is totally out of the question Unless I come into some money somewhere, somehow .... Bikes I am considering are a BMW F800GS OR a F700GS or similar, as there are a few BM's badged as F650GS here and they were superseded by the F700GS .... - The Triumph Tiger 800 - the NC750X Honda and the Aprillia Shiver 750 .... ALL of which I could probably afford on my budget and all of which are Very capable motorcycles and with a decent 50/50 dual purpose tires would make a great adventure bike for me - Just have to see what I think of them all and see what comes out on top for me ....
Aprillia might be hard to get Spare Parts for and probably just as costly as a BMW would be - maybe not so much for the Triumph Tiger 800 & the Honda NC750X - these companies have good reputations and similar for the spares bits and pieces and choice of aftermarket stuff is greater in supply from different manufacturers ....
NO Hurry really - I will have ALL Winter to Contemplate which one is for me ..... and I will keep everyone informed of my choice of Adventure bike ...
Take Care & Ride Safe ...
