A New Horse in the Stable!!

Well, after many weeks of searching I finally found my next bike, to park alongside my 900Custom, for a while at least!

After narrowly missing out on a couple, today managed to finally 'pull the pin' on an immaculate 2008 model 1600 Nomad. I had to go interstate to secure it, as there was nothing available in my home area. It has been very well looked after and I got it for a very reasonable price. It is currently being shipped down from Bundaberg, Queensland, but here are a few pics sent to me by the seller.

Very nice. Looks very clean. I had my eye on a very clean-looking '08 Nomad at one of the local dealers. The price seemed right, but I decided that the two bikes I already have is enough. You'll like that Nomad. Beautiful bike. Santa was good to you this year.

Gorgeous, absolutely gorgeous. I am in a huge state of envy. I am looking for either a Nomad or a 2000 LT to go with my V9D in the same red/black color scheme and would love to have your bike in my stable. Enjoy!!!!!

The things that may or may not be true are the things a man needs to believe in the most. People are good; honor, courage, virtue mean everything; power and money mean nothing; good always triumphs over evil; true love never dies. A man should believe in those things, because they are worth believing in.

Thanks Ponch, Sydney to Bundy is a little over 1300Km one way. It would have been a great trip, but with work being flat chat at the moment, plus this time of year, I just don't have the time. The seller gave me a great rate to ship back for me, in just two days and I would have needed a week. So I thought, "hang it", it's worth the extra cost to get it sooner!!
