    1500 nomad kawasaki

    I just got back from a fun trip to Minnesota to do a trade. Traded my 09TW for a really nice Kawasaki Nomad. I still have a TW to ride with you folks so will be looking forward to doing rides still. The trip was over 4500 mi by the time I pulled into my driveway at home. My best friend that I served with in VN just lived 60 mi from the place I picked the bike up. We had a couple days. He has been through a hard time with cancer from agent orange. Lost a kidney over it, a tumor on the brain and one in the ribs. Been a real fight for him. When I was just a few miles from home he called as he was just at the hospital a few days before. There was no sign of any tumors, I was just elated and in tears for him. Amazing, hope it stays away from him. Went down across Iowa into Nebraska to spend a couple days and then across to Kalispell Mt and had a visit with a fellow I hadn't seen in 20yrs, was great, then back home from there. Now to head for Alaska for a few days or weeks, will see how it goes, then will drive my car back down back down. figure I will can up a few cases to bring down with me.

    Owning 2 TWs I would gladly make the same trade. Think I need to follow Plumb around to see if I can get a deal like this.

    Yes, was that stupid of me or what?? I do need to put a clutch in it, but that is an easy thing to do, parts are on the way. I still have a TW to chase you folks in the back country so beware, I am still out there.

    I am headed for Alaska Monday evening. Will look forard to getting that clutch in and doing some nice fall riding. Enjoy that TW, was good to me, and I am sure you will have a great time with it. Hopefully you can join us in Moab or some ride we can get together again.
