    How much do you pay to get tires mounted?

    I am completely happy with it. The motor has plenty of torque to spin the wheel; the arm is solid enough to keep the duckhead where it needs to be; the bead breaker has plenty of force to break stubborn beads; and every part on it is available from Derek Weaver. Lots of people told me to buy a...

    2018 Goldwing DCT

    The 183rd GoldWing in the US was bought by the future beemerphile. Shown here on Daytona Beach in June of 1975... The NewWing is the first one to interest me since then. It misses on weight, despite the significant reduction, and it still misses on fuel capacity like every Honda model...

    Looking forward to the new version

    The ideal NC1000 would be a 3-cylinder. To start the joke, 3/4's of a Jazz / Fit engine. That way it could keep its economical under stressed character but gain significant power and smoothness. Give it belt drive and I would buy one. Honda needs to learn how to put a bike on the Jenny Craig...

    What gauge wire should I use

    14 AWG is entirely adequate for the horns. The only difference you will find with larger wire is that it is more difficult to install and terminate.

    Has the Internet Made You Cluelessly Modify Your Motorcycle For The Worst?

    Thanks. I get it now. That is why they under-sprung the front to make up for it being over-damped. Brilliant.

    Has the Internet Made You Cluelessly Modify Your Motorcycle For The Worst?

    I agree that attempting to hot rod the engine will most likely end badly, but I am having trouble thinking of anything a normally intelligent person could do to an NC700 suspension, brakes, lighting, or seat to make it worse than stock. The decisions have "price point" written all over them...

    Are BMW bikes really the best at the moment?

    Careful what you learn without any experience. I started riding BMW"s when I was 23 years old. I am 64 now. A couple (man and wife) that I met at the beginning remained friends the whole time. We started a local BMW club in Chattanooga. He died recently and his wife and I still communicate...
