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

    Now that I feel confident on my bike, I decided to put back original dogbones and raise suspension to original settings. Too bad the winter is still not going away.

    Cold weather gear choices?

    First Gear heated jacket, gloves, socks; dual controller; voltmeter to make sure that alternator is not overpowered. If temperature is below 30 and there is a lot of highway riding, rain gear over everything else. Tall windshield and hand guards help too.

    Went for a last ride in 2017. Tomorrow we'll see 3" of snow and after that, typically for Chicago, deep freeze. Today was around freezing and beautiful day along with good road conditions.

    New Tires: TKC-80 front and Shinko 805 rear

    In comparison to original front tire, comfort wise, how does the TKC feel on pavement? Also, do you experience any wobble at low speeds?

    Thanks for reply. I took great care to ensure that rotor did not get damaged. I'm just super cautious when dealing with unknown (knobby newbie here). It is just nature of TKC tires. Now, when I'm below 20mph, I do not feel the wobble, but each knob touching the asphalt. Just normal stuff that I...

    2017: What did you do to/with your NC700 today?

    Installed set of TKCs. I'm braking them in. So far, I'm afraid that I've screwed something up, or just not used to them. Everything is fine except Handlebar vibration under braking around 20mph. It was a b***h to mount them and I did make a few scratches on the wheel; however, wheel balanced...

    Checked the bike after 700 mile, two day camping trip. The only thing the bike needs is a chain lube. :D. BTW here are a couple pics from the trip. My NC was in a good crowd, including one cage.

    Planning a trip to see the "great North American solar eclipse" on August 21st

    Just got back from Festus, MO. We've had clear skies It was out of this world experience. And from this world experience was commute back to Chicago. NC has done well. Not a hiccup. Another day's highlight was riding thru a thunderstorm after 10 hours in the saddle.
