2006 Kawasaki Nomad
Well thought through and rounded design
Warning to do-it-yourself types: Do not over torque crankshaft oil drain plug. Case is aluminum and the bolt is steel.
This motorcycle has very good ergonomics. At 5'9" I feel very comfortable. Even though I have highway pegs, I hardly use them due to the bike's inherent ergonomics. It is very well thought through, and you'll discover this even more if you do maintenance yourself. I had a 1999 (yes, with the plastic oil gear), and the tweaks Kawasaki performed to make my 2006 are noticeable.
Would you buy another motorcycle from this manufacturer? Yes

I wouldn't buy another Kawasucki. This nomad has been the biggest POS I've ever owned. Too much stuff to go into detail.

I have a 2008 Nomad. This bike is well thought out, comfortable, smooth and handles very well. Going on 10 years and 30K miles - no problems of any kind. Very comfortable riding position. It's a keeper.
