Hey fellow inmates, I traded my Nomad in today on this:
this decision is not related to the recent problems I've had with my bike,(although it may have moved that decision up a few months), Overall, I’ve really enjoyed riding the Nomad, gonna miss that cruise control. But; I've been thinking about making a change to a completely different kind of riding for over 6 months and the right deal came along; so I pulled the trigger. I find I'm leaning more and more toward Adventure Touring rather than Cruiser Touring... because; when I get to the end of the pavement, I just want to keep on going!!... that's the reason in a nutshell.
Anyway, I've got some accessories that I took off my 09 Nomad prior to trading it in today... I've posted them over in the "for sale" area. I just wanted to put a note and link here in case any of you might be interested in any of them... enjoy the ride!! What ever you ride.
here's a link to the for sale page...
Mustang seat with integral rider adjustable backrest
Kuryakyn adjustable highway foot pegs
rear rack trunk
4) chrome gps handlebar mount... fits garmin snap in ball on most garmin units
5) one Left side saddle bag top grill (left half of a pair)
One shop manual for 1700 nomad...
rear shock pump for the Nomad rear shock air adjustment
That’s all there is!... the bike was so well accessorized stock, that it didn't need much farkeling!!...
Best of luck to you all… rick
bye the way, the darkside tire had 18,000 miles on it at trade-in (23,000 miles on the bike)... I figure it has about another 10,000 miles to go... the stealer kinda raised his eyebrows when I told him what was on there... then he smiled and told me he plans to ride the Nomad himself for a while before he sells it... he said he's interested in trying it out to see how it rides...
