Congrats on the new ride! If you like it half as much as I like my Nomad, you'll be one happy camper!

Safe Ride,

There is a lot you should be aware of, but you should have asked this question before making a deal. now you get to find out for yourself.

I had an '09 that I bought in '11 for $8100. It only had 1700 miles on it. Sold it in the spring of '12 for $10500. I did not like the beach bars, the Speedo on the tank, the wind buffeting, or the weak front end. She sure was a looker though, and would have people standing around admiring her everywhere I stopped.

I thought it would be a great summer partner to the Voyager, but it just isn't the same.

Of course if you loved your 900 you will probably love everything but the weight and width of the Nomad.

Don't mind me, I think the time change has made me moody.

The chrome passenger floorboard covers actually came off my 900 Classic LT. When I traded for the Nomad I swapped them because the black covers on the Nomad didn't do it for me . The Kawasaki P/N for them is 14091-0229 and they list for only $7 each on Kawasaki's OEM part finder on my dealers website. Hope this helps.
