Default 2012 Nomad!

After 3 years of riding my 900 Custom I figured I'd move up in the world! Here's my new ride.

Got her 3 weeks ago. Already have 1500 miles on her. It's the biggest and heaviest bike I've ridden. What a machine! Lots of power, comfortable, and I get lots of compliments!

Congratulations. I bought a new 2011 Nomad in March and i'm really looking forward to the riding season here in north Texas. The best value in a large cruiser/tourer out there IMHO.

Nice to see that they went back to the '09 2 tone color scheme. Just slightly different colors.

The best $14 you can spend is getting the chrome passenger floorboard covers for your bike. It is an OEM part for the Vulcan 2000 among others.

A real looker! What capacity are the hard bags, they look big.
Enjoy.

Congrats on the new bike. Love that color combo. I bought a new 2011 blue and silver in September, but only have 390 miles on it. I'll have to get around to posting a picture soon. Can't get the time to ride more and it's starting to get cold enough to be uncomfortable. Getting ready to park it for the winter anyway.
