    ABS brakes should probably be a 'deal killer' on new street bikes

    BMW and Honda are both developing ABS for dirt situations. The numbers are quite encouraging.

    ABS brakes should probably be a 'deal killer' on new street bikes

    I wish Honda offered the ABS MT model in 2017. I was told the bike had ABS by the salesman who assumed it did like the DCT model on the floor. Boy was I steamed when I read the manual at home. I can see the argument for switchable ABS for dirt/dualsport bikes. ABS seems like a feature akin...

    I can't tell if I love or hate this, or just think it's okay

    Tyre mileage on nc750

    I think I squeezed 8k out of mine, but they were beyond horrid by that point. Almost as flat as a car tire

    It shouldn't be that hard to get to triple digits (in freedom units). 93ish should be possible in 5th gear iirc. I passed someone yesterday and was going 85 or so as I re-entered my lane. Still had room to climb revs. I'm pretty good about checking air pressure, I've always replaced the air...

    I've had 120+ freedom units indicated on the dash before. Long and straight downhill with WOT. It was very loud and not that much fun

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

    Rode a couple hundred miles to do some errands. I guess bikers really will go to great lengths to fetch milk

    What makes the NC more fun than the FJR? I'm curious because the FJR is currently tied for first on my list of dream bikes :)

    mileage

    My average over only 53,000+ miles is 71mpg. Worst was 52, best was 91. The manual doesn't specify synthetic oil so I use the dino stuff. I'd rather spend my money on tires over oil.

    I also dropped my bike. I was at my buddies house helping him bring a CT90 Trail back to life. As I was moving my bike out of the way I went to tip it onto the side stand and thought it was just on a downslope. Nope. It tilted over so far because I had forgotten to put the side stand down...

    Is Aerostitch worth it?

    Well I guess my wife got me an even better gift than I thought. She ordered all the extra pads. So I'm still technically correct. It did come with the hip pads! ;)
