Thinking about buying this vaquero

This 2011 Kawasaki VULCAN 1700 VAQUERO is for sale at $8,995.00
The bike has 17,766 miles, red color, with upgraded seats, custom exhaust, etc. It looks in mint condition.
Is this a good deal? I will trade in my 2015 Yamaha V Star 1300
My Yamaha runs very nice. I just want a bike with bigger engine, the fairings, etc.
Thanks for your help.

Rev, you stole that Nomad.

I'd pay 7+ for my 2011 Nomad with 17k (which it has) knowing what I know about it. Maybe even 8. 9 for 2011 Vaq seems in the ballpark.

My only complaint about my Nomad was that a Commander II on the front created a small wobble. Went back to stock and it mostly disappeared. Going to All Balls bearings soon, which is supposed to solve the issue.

I love the bike. I think many don't care for the Vaq's stock seat (the Nomad and Voyager seats are nice)

Didn't see that one listed on rc hills page but saw another one listing for 1k more at Seminole Powersports a little further to the south.
2012 1700 Vaquero Special asking $9988.00 with 12,992 miles in lime green. Also, I have had work done on my old Ninja at RC Hill and they seem pretty honest.
