    Harley Davidson, 2021 Could Be Their Year

    When I read the title I thought it meant this was finally the year Harley was going under. But maybe Harley is optimistic, because according to the article: "A new lineup of Harley branded merchandise is released".

    Hello From East Central Missouri

    A red Honda blends into the sea of common red Hondas and common red cars on the road today. A blue Honda motorcycle stands out as somewhat unique. I really like the looks of the blue NC750X.

    NC700X For Sale (not mine)

    The scary thing is, that’s the color I painted my old NC! Could it be? No, fortunately I don’t think that one was mine. I would have hated to see it hacked u . . , I mean, farkled like that.

    Oxford Heated Grip Failure

    Compare heating element resistance measurements of the two grips. If the right grip measures infinite or significantly higher than the left, the right grip is bad. If the problem is the wire feeding the right grip, do a careful inspection of the wire routing to prevent a repeat failure.

    Lane Filtering: For, Against, & Somewhere In-Between

    Lane filtering is a non-issue for me. If I see only one car go past in the last 10 minutes, I know I’m on the right road.

    Question Rack for Touratech Zega Evo Panniers?

    1. Sorry, I don‘t know. 2. I’m drawing a blank on this one. 3. Just going by my poor memory, I think when I painted my 2012 orange, it cost me almost $200 just for the automotive quality paints and materials. When I paid someone with a real paint booth to paint the second set of grey panels lime...

    2021: What did you do to/with your NC700/NC750 today?

    Assuming your front turn signals are not LEDs. did you check the bulb (the prime suspect)? I had an early life running light filament failure on my CRF dual sport. Had to replace the bulb.

    Valve Adjustment Step-By-Step

    With apologies, if I may be very blunt, the rule is RTFM. If the manual is wrong, I'll try to reach out to the manufacturer to get it corrected.

    Valve Adjustment Step-By-Step

    Yes, that is unfortunate. People that rely on youtube videos in lieu of a product manufacturer's provided service manual run the risk that the information may be, well, incorrect. Now to be fair, Honda did screw up one thing in the valve adjustment procedure in the very first version of the...

    2021: What did you do to/with your NC700/NC750 today?
