I bought the NC to go fishing around the lakes. Happy to say I went fishing with it and caught a nice small large mouth bass. Then I rode the NC out the gravel roads through the nature area instead of the blacktop. What fun!
Went for a 45 minute ride yesterday to try out the Firstgear Kiki Hi riding boots I just bought. I wear a narrow width and it has been difficult to find riding boots that fit. After reading the reviews I saw that these boots are sized a bit narrow. Fit great! The other issue is that I have high arches. It took years to figure out that a boot with the side zipper is what I needed.
On Christmas Day my wife and I did 118 mile ride, 2 up, on the 2016 NC700XD around Dale Hollow Lake. Stopped in to take a look at the state park in Kentucky. Interesting overlook of Trooper Island. A place where state troopers can take their sons and do some father son bonding. This was our second 100 mile ride and I believe she has had about enough of the stock seat. In spite of the seat it was a great ride.
