    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...

    Swiss and Austrian Alps Ride

    Well, I finally pulled the trigger on a bucket list ride. My cousin in London has invited me to tag along with him on a 10 day tour of (start in Kent, UK) France, Switzerland, Austria, Germany and Italy. The only thing missing will be my wonderful NC700 steed, but I have rented a decent...

    When planning, maybe you can meet up with our Portland group - meet halfway for lunch or something.

    Test Ride?

    Have sold a lot of bikes privately. Did not allow test rides...ever. However, I did offer a 60 minute money back guarantee. If you buy the bike, we complete the paperwork and then you take delivery...you have 60 minutes to test ride it. If you return it in the same condition, I will refund...
