Default New Ride

After a couple of years of admiring, I picked one up last night. Traded a Nomad for it. Getting close to 500 miles, so heading out to find oil. I will be digging around here looking for the must do's for this ride.

Did you have a 1700 Nomad? I almost bought a 2012 Nomad, but went with the 2012 Cross Roads LE instead.

I had an 07. This is a vast improvement in all categories.

Congratulations. I'm in the process of negotiating for my first Vic - a Cross Roads. Such a bittersweet time. I'm not looking to rake the dealer over the coals, I just don't want to feel like I've been taken advantage of.

I hated the process, but wound up being not as bad as I thought. I just had to go 259 miles to get the deal and I really didn't want to ride the old bike back home. It was easy once I got there, only negotiated a few things.
