    Noise cancelling earbuds

    GLC, the cheap foam plugs work fine. If you really want to do it, you can get custom molded hearing protection but you will have to Google those since I do not have any experience. I use Harbor Freight orange plugs, a pair will last me a month, but 50 pair is $5...

    Anyone add an Android/Apple CarPlay motorcycle screen?

    My best GPS is a $5 yard sale Garmin with lifetime maps. If it rains I put it in a Ziplock which is basically IP64 I think lol. A big win would be finding a LMT version! The old Zumo was a little easier because it had buttons, but those rubber buttons failed and fell out and the unit fried.

    Ok gang, who's using what for cruising pegs?

    I use these on Givi guards but I sandblasted and painted them black. https://www.jpcycles.com/product/jp-cycles-rubber-footpeg-set-with-clamp-on-mount

    Ok, let's talk windscreen extensions.

    The best answer is the Madstad. If you really want to block the wind, get the biggest one they have, one or two sizes above their recommendation for your height. It can always be lowered. I am also 6' 2" and mine is too small IMO so I added a clip on as well. I reversed the mounting hardware so...

    Johnakay rear rack/backrest

    Very cool. I see why this will not work with the Givi or OEM rack. Hopefully someone can use this. I would like a back rest for the OEM top case, but a big Goldwing style.

    Vibrates and is a bit sluggish around 2000-2500 rpm

    No. Shift down or use less throttle. In normal riding I have no trouble riding out from about 2200 but I am a fairly tame rider.

    NC700X Vs. CB500X for touring

    This information is probably still relevant, even on a thread started 9 years ago LOL.

    2012 time to sell

    2012 NC7X in good shape, probably the $3500-4500 range, maybe more if you're persistent and patient. There's always a Ural. Boxer engine, not 2-wheels. 2014-18 was 1st gen FI and a big step up, 2019 on are a whole new machine and level of build quality. See Gene at Holopaw off 192 between...

    Plug Your Lug, Prevent Permanent Hearing Loss

    I must say, I use the cheap Harbor Freight orange plugs that are something like $7 for 50 pair. I should try something better sometime but I feel they work well anyway. Plus with 50 pair, I can stash them everywhere in case I need a set.

    Plug Your Lug, Prevent Permanent Hearing Loss

    I rode probably my first 5 years without them, only because I didn't know any better. Since then I wear them on every ride anywhere, and when I go to concerts. Concerts are just too loud these days, or am I too old (35 lol)?

    Front brake hose extension

    I got a custom braided line. Ended up doing 40" banjo fitting center to center to do a 6" rise. I used a 45 degree fitting on the lever side and 15 degree on the caliper side. I don't recall the length of the stock line but it's in my garage somewhere. Those extensions look silly IMO, not sure...

    Man, THIS is UGLY!!!!!!!!!

    All I wanted to do was add fog lights last fall and it looked the same except I didn't need to remove the wheels LOL. Can't wait to see the final!

    Question August, September or October is better for off-roading in Colorado?

    Any of those are fine unless you really have issues with heat or cold. When I lived near Denver, 100 on a sunny day and 65 on a sunny day felt the same because you're getting raw sun and have no humidity. Being from FL it felt like what FL feels like at 78, warm but not overbearing. Once you...

    Custom Rear Rack, Tusk Large Panniers

    I built a similar but more rudimentary version to mount Tusk panniers using Happy Trails billet pannier mounting system. Looks like they have changed a lot since I bought them...

    Who's using what for Bar risers?

    I used generic ROX copies on the NC. They were in the 1.5" range but I had to clip the zip ties holding the wires. I ended up going with 8" TC Bros mini apes, but I got a custom brake line, swapped the cables to CTX, and spiced about 6" of wire in to the harnesses.

    What was your FIRST motorcycle

    1981 Yamaha XJ650. $700 in 2010, I was 22. It was beat but it had gold wheels and 'chameleon' painted flames. Took me everywhere!
