    Bought a mini-me to my NC700X

    That sounds like so much fun. I've thought about getting something small like that, but have too many projects to warrant another bike. Congratulations!

    Another GoldWing vs Harley-Davidson joke!

    I was once told that Harley Davidson is an apparel company that just happens to make motorcycles. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    What's in your Frunk?

    This reminds me that I need to clean out all the junk that has accumulated in there. It's pretty bad.

    Bought a 2015 DCT with 10k miles and unknown history. What should I do first?

    Um...Maybe top off the gas tank and get to riding. In all seriousness, if you don't know, it's best to change the stuff that could have potentially been overlooked by the previous owner: oil, filters, check the chain for kinks and the sprockets for wear. That's really about all I can think...

    2018: What did you do to/with your NC700 today?

    Today I did the same thing I do every day I ride. I cleaned the spider webs off the bars and forks. I have a resident spider who is very industrious. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Personal best mpg!

    My average over the 17,000 miles since I started using Fuelly is 69.5mpg. My three best are 79.2, 79.5, and a whopping 79.8 on July 17, 2015. I have found that speed is the killer on my bike's mpg. Those days were riding between 35 and 50 miles per hour in the mountains of Georgia, North...

    Seen in the wild

    I was passed by a red NC today coming down 17/365 out of Habersham County into Toccoa. I was in the cage. It was around 5:15. Rider had a passenger and a silver and black trunk on the back. They had South Carolina tags. I was hoping to catch them at the stop light, but they made it through and I...

    Hi all from SC! Need info!

    I have a '12. I raised the front of my seat by 3/4 inch. I also put on a set of 2" adjustable risers. Those made a huge difference for me. I also installed the Honda centerstand. I feel that is a necessity now that I've had one. One farkle that I added was the Honda 12v power outlet with...

    2018: What did you do to/with your NC700 today?

    Well, today I've pretty much just lusted after my NC. I havent' been riding in 7 or 8 months. Life, huh? Anyway, last week, I saw my key sitting in its spot looking all lonely so I figured I'd just go see if it would crank. After sitting alone in the shed for 7 months, she fired right up. I...

    Help work on 2013 nc700x

    Hey Joe, It sounds like you are well on your way. With the service manual, you can do pretty much anything with these bikes. Well, that and an assortment of 10mm wrenches, sockets, and the like. My biggest concern is always torque specifications. When it says 7ft/lb, it really means 7. I'm...

    Beautiful! We don't grow them that size down here, not that I've seen anyway. I have a friend in West Lafayette who used to tell us about his monster whitetails up north. Good looking buck.

    Feeling Discouraged

    I have to admit that I don't know when the last time I posted was. Honestly, I don't remember the last time I was on the forum. It used to be a huge part of my social interaction, but you get out of a routine and BAM. Anyway, I have put less than 1000 miles on my bike this year. It doesn't...
