Bought a 1600 Nomad today

After looking for a more touring orientated bike than my 500, I found a 2005 1600 Nomad, with 27,000 miles. Test rode it and my wife said she loved the ride. Bought from the same dealer I got the 500 from, and he sold the Nomad new and serviced it. Am looking forward to getting it next week. Already planning a ride on the Great River Road in Wisconsin, with my sister and her husband.
