Like dirtdobber said, good for you, did your research and made your decision. Hey, it is your bike, get out and enjoy it. I had a kaw 1500ccNomad, 2000. It was a great bike with no issues in about 60K miles that I owned it. I checked out the one you bought at the Victory dealeer the other day, they sell Kaws too. Looks good to me and Kaw is a reliable bike. Speaking of heat off the motor, the wifes Vision would cook your leg to medium rare off the rear cylinder pipe. No big deal, some Baker Air Wings and pulling a couple heat shields, wrapping the pipe and putting it back together made a world of difference.
Hope to see you on the road, old guy with a white beard and white XC. Should be easy to pick out-and I will be wearing jeans!!!!
