    What grips are best for distance riding?

    Is the "re-grip" removable? Are they soft or hard rubber? I use GripPuppies and have not had any issue with them, they don't slip around on my grips, but I do wonder how durable they will be. They are simply foam sleeves and seem like they won't last very long. I've got about 5000 miles on...

    2018-2020 NC750X differences?

    Well there are really no major FUNCTIONAL differences between the 2016 and the 2018 either other than the LEDs and the engine. The engine goes from 670cc to 745cc in the 2018 and the power/rev curve change a little bit but I think the overall riding character is still very similar between the...

    2020: What did you do to/with your NC700 today?

    Nothing. Well I looked at it. We have a snow, ice, slush situation here. It was slick out this morning, now it's just cold, dark and wet outside.

    Helmet lock

    I use a simple vinyl coated cable lock that is a few feet long. Depending upon where I am, I frequently lock my JACKET and HELMET to the bike by running the cable through a jacket sleeve, through the helmet opening (I have a full face helmet) and then secure it to the bike.

    2018-2020 NC750X differences?

    You are CORRECT (for the USA spec models) We own a 2016 (wife's bike) and a 2018 (mine) and they are identical frame/body panels, etc. LED headlamp and taillamp, engine, and traction control were added in 2018. DCT was upgraded in 2016, in addition to the change of the plastics all around...

    2018-2020 NC750X differences?

    I'd be happy to sell $1200 of black wheel paint so you'd still save $600 by buying the fast red 2018 and have black wheels too :cool:

    My student just beat a US Olympian in competition today!

    Thanks! Dasha is not my real daughter. We often introduce her has ours, sometimes as our adopted daughter, but she’s actually not ours in any legal way. She is a foreign exchange student who I met as a fencing student and who we developed a surrogate parenting relationship with. We’ve...

    USB outlets hooked up to the battery...warning

    I use one of these little USB adapters. I don't leave it connected to the bike. And it uses the same wires as the Battery Tender charger. Cheap, easy, reliable solution.
