I get email notifications and saw your original message. I guess you answered it for yourself?

Some chrome bling you can add that really dresses up the bike; brake cover, side case panel, pass. floor boards, fendar tips. Your bike looks great and if you like it half as much as I like mine, you'll be a happy camper!

Default 2012 Nomad

Hey, your bike looks great. I've got a 07 900 Classic Lt and have been thinking of the Nomad as an upgrade. I'm looking for something with a bit more power than the 900 that might be a bit smoother as well. I think I've narrowed to the Nomad and (hate to say this) the HD Heritage Softtail. What can anyone tell me?
Thanks

If you want to stand out from the rest get the Nomad. If you want to fit in with the majority then get the softtail. Get whatever bike makes you want to ride more often. That is the important thing.

Enjoy.
According to the specs 10 gallon. I just know I can fit my leather jacket in one with plenty of room for gloves and such. And my leather chaps fit in the other with lots of room left over!

I really like the chrome passenger boards. I bet I'll be adding some goodies in the following year!
