    Riding with a passenger

    Thank you. That’s an interesting idea, I haven’t heard that before. The ride went well, and we both had a good time. Luckily we got the best weather we’ve had in weeks! She was squirming and moving around a bit, though I had instructed her to keep still, which was unsettling. I will remind...

    Picking up a '13 NC700X Thursday!

    I have the Givi V35 Monokey bags. I like them a lot, and I think they look quite good on the bike. I didn’t have to replace the grab handles or anything. They are easy to put on and take off, and the brackets by themselves are not obtrusive. Sorry about the photo- I don’t know how to get it...

    Picking up a '13 NC700X Thursday!

    I just go to my dealer where I bought my bike(s). They treat me very well, and I don’t mind paying a little extra to support them.

    Selling 2014 NC 700x

    It looks really sharp! I’ve never been a fan of black motorcycles, but I think it looks great with the red accents. It’s too bad you have to sell her. I would think you should have no problems finding a buyer, especially with the low mileage.

    Riding with a passenger

    I have agreed to take a woman I met for a ride this weekend, at her request. I am feeling kind of nervous about it, because I haven’t ridden with a passenger in 35 years ( I just got back into riding again 3 years ago). How does the NC handle with a passenger? Any tips would be appreciated...

    Windshield choices

    My bar ends were hitting the shield slightly after I installed it, when the handlebars were fully turned, so I adjusted them downwards. I also added some small bar raiser spacers (I can’t remember what they’re called), trying to find a more comfortable riding position. It worked well - I now...

    Offering new riders advice

    The other day I was sitting outside Starbucks on Brant St in Burlington when a young guy rode up on his new cbr300r with his girlfriend on the back. I struck up a conversation. He said he got his motorcycle licence 2 weeks ago. I noticed they were both wearing running shoes, he had jeans on, and...

    2018 Goldwing DCT

    This is probably the wrong thread to post this in, but I wonder why Honda isn’t offering DCT in some of the smaller displacement bikes to attract new riders? I would guess that learning to use the clutch and gears is a big barrier for many new riders who might otherwise take up motorcycling...
