Any Vaquero Riders in the Milwaukee, WI. area?

I know that Milwaukee is an HD city, trying to find out if there are any Vaquero owners in the area, maybe we can meet up and do some riding.

Hi Roadblock, I've had my bike since December 13th. absolutely love the Vaquero. I picked my bike up from Southwest Sales, I'm heading for a rally this weekend but would enjoy comparing mods and getting out for a ride.

The rally was in Union Grove, WI. at the Great Lakes Dragway. Man the V and H's sound really good, if the weather is good I plan on riding this weekend. I live on the northwest side we can meet up anywhere.

Question for you guys. Is the Vaquero as rare as it seems? Don't see many and cant even find anywhere that has used ones for sale. I'm interested in checking one out and taking for a test drive. Been starting to think of upgrading. Took an Indian for a test drive and I wasn't as impressed as I thought i'd be. At least not enough, to have a motorcycle payment. I truly love my 03' Nomad, but have just been starting to think something newer would be nice.

I took my wife and I are about 6 months of searching the internet before we found the right used Vaquero to put in our garage. I really don't think there are but I must admit finding a good used one was not easy. My wife actually found mine searching the internet for used Vaccaro's in our area I still had to drive an hour from my house to go get it.

They are truly few and far between. In the 2+ years I've had mine, I have seen exactly ONE on the road. There have been a few for sale in my area on Facebook Marketplace and Craigslist.

The Vaquero gets plenty of looks, even from HD riders
