    Ordered a Corbin seat this morning for my NC750x

    I have used Corbins for years (Iron and Baby Butt riding). You MUST give it time to break in - at least 1000 miles... If you look at most common bad reviews, it is from folks who install it, ride for a day and then call it quits. The seat is worth the money. I have owned at least 6 of these...

    Heated battery powered vest $27 free shipping

    Got my 4XL yesterday - wouldn't fit most adult males - I would call it a medium in normal american sizing. Tried to process a return and was denied due to low cost and cost to ship back to China (unless I wanted to pay the shipping). Going to donate it to a small person. I would say skip this....

    Heated battery powered vest $27 free shipping

    Got it. Sizing is a huge issue - 4XL would only fit a teenager. Super cheep and doesn't get very warm. Skip this.

    Heated battery powered vest $27 free shipping

    For 27 bucks, worth a try. And Amazon which has a great return policy, so no risk. Thanks for the heads up.

    Lower Pegs???

    I have these as well - fantastic - pricy, but solid. I still have them on the bike. https://www.nc700-forum.com/forum/nc700-mods/12775-knight-design-1-1-4-inch-lowered-wide-front-foot-peg-unboxing-installation.html?highlight=knight+design+unboxing

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

    Spent the day riding the old 224 from Oregon City to Detroit Lake - one of the coolest MC roads in my area, it follows the Clackamas River with beautiful scenery and twisties. Had the road almost to myself - a Mazda Miata club and a Ducati group were the only ones out there other than an odd or...

    What is the best bike you have ever owned ?

    Honda ST1100 - had 3 of them in a row. I call my NC700, my "ST1100 Mini-Me". (Note: Honda ruined the line with the ST1300...yuck! Bought, rode for 3 months and sold it in disgust) The big bike just got too heavy for me and rather than give up the style I like, I bought a NC, and built it...

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

    Saturday - de-winterize. New oil and DCT filters and oil, inspection, tightened chain and dusted it off. Sunday, 60's and sunny in Portland - spent the morning getting to know my old friend in the back-country. Awesome!

    OEM Honda Side Panniers

    Not to disrupt a sale, but...if these do not include the mounting hardware, be prepared to spend a fair amount to buy it. I found this out the hard way. https://www.nc700-forum.com/forum/how-to-s-/12538-oem-saddlebag-carrier-installation.html?highlight=portlandzinman

    What seat is installed on your NC700?

    Corbin - even with the silly lettering. (BTW, order the lettering in black - takes care of that issue). I have had these saddles on all my ST's and now my NC (20 years of riding sport touring) - if you go through the standard break-in period, it is am amazing seat. I can ride any distance and...

    Corbin Seats - Unboxing and Installation Review

    In another thread, I was answering that I preferred the Corbin over all the others I have tried - came back here to add the link to this thread and realized I had not followed up on my "review." As expected, after about 1000 miles, this seat again proved to be awesome - I have no idea it is...
