The Nomad is very heavy when pushing, getting off kickstand, etc. Basically, doing anything when sitting still. However, once moving it feels very lightweight. It's not quite as nimble as my 900 was, but is still surprisingly agile given it's weight. The biggest difference from the 900 is comfort. When cruising at higher speeds I can really relax instead of fighting wind gusts and vibrations. If only the Nomad could get the same fuel mileage. There are many times I miss the 900, but not when I'm on the highway!
Go for the ride!
