Greetings all. I recently got a new 2012 Nomad 1700. My significant other could tolerate riding behind me on my 650 Vstrom but not for an extended ride. The Moto Guzzis didn't work for her more than an hour. So, I was happy to find this thing at a discount. Sasha likes it.



My first bike was a '64 Super Hawk. Loved it, loved it, loved it.

I wish I had what that old microbus would be worth now.

I came to this forum looking for tips on wiring the bike for a trailer. I've gotten help, thanks. I plan to convert the trailer behind the Weestrom, which connects to a tow rod that passes through the axle, to work behind a standard hitch with a vertical rod instead of a ball to keep the thing from flopping over.


I posted a "howdy" message almost the same as this but I can't find it so I'm doing it over. Sorry if I'm duplicating the thing.

Welcome from just south of you, Pueblo, colorado.
I am also looking for something my wife can tolerate for longer rides. She can only tolerate the bullet, as she calls it, on my 500 for short rides.

Welcome from NE Texas! I'm a little different, I guess. I'd like to keep my bike and trade for a more tolerant wife! :D:eek:

Fairly broad seat, passenger footboards, and backrest seem to be the ticket. Passenger accommodation on most bikes is like an afterthought. I sometimes scoot back to that part of the seat to stretch my legs a bit. It's usually like sitting on a 2X4. Can't blame the ladies for their reluctance.
