    Anti Freeze Smell

    Last several times I've taken out the NC, I'll notice a little antifreeze smell when I pull into the garage. I don't see any obvious leaks. Any thoughts or experiences with anything like this.?

    Overfilling Gas Tank

    Has anyone had trouble with overfilling the gas tank? The pump doesn't click off when full and gas goes everyplace. Very frightening. Its impossible to look into the tank while filling and I've had this happen several times. Any thoughts or experiences?

    Kickstand 12 or 13?

    I really can't remember which one this is. I think the numbers were confused a few years ago. I know that the first one was in 2009, although there was another rally at the coast the previous year by the folks that started this one. This gathering was started by a small group of Honda...

    Added to the stable today

    Picked up this Hima today. Only did a few miles getting her home, but what a difference from the NC. The Hima feels so small and light. Will start the lengthy break in tomorrow.

    MABDR anyone.

    Since it was first announced, I've wanted to do the MABDR. Prior to its development, others had laid out the TET, a series of trails and roads from FLA to New England. I'm told the NC can handle it, although there is a rocky section where I would worry about the cast rims. I live close...

    Brake fluid replacement

    I've bled brakes before, but I've not changed fluid as part of maintenance. Do I just add fresh fluid at the reservoir, bleeding at the caliper until I have fresh fluid? Thanks

    Odd Wear pattern PR4

    I was planning to put new rubber on the NC later in the spring, but while on a 100 mile ride today, I noticed sudden wear on by front tire. When I left home, the tire was fine, pressure at 34. Pressure at the pic is 36. I can't imagine what caused the uneven wear and so quick. Any thoughts.

    how deep

    I'm thinking about riding the MABDR in 2019. I think the NC will be fine, but I was wondering about the water crossings. How deep would you think the cut off should be. I'm most worried about shorting electrical circuits. For instance, the horn. I know there are sensing circuits down low.

    Storm Survivors

    Here's hoping that all of you in the path of Michael are ok. I was communicating with a new NC owner in Panama City a few days ago on another forum. Said he was on the safe side of the storm and was going to ride it out. Looks like Panama City was hit very hard. Prayers for him and anyone...

    another tire thread...thinking of switching from street to dual sport

    Currently on my third set of PR 4's Would like to run many of the fire roads at this years KSL, so thinking about doing some dual sport tires. The TKC 80 / MItas e07 or Shinko 805 seems popular. I get a new rear tire each season and front every other year. Usually do 5-6k miles each...

    Ksl 8.5

    There's been some talk about going back up to Kickstand Lodge this fall. I contacted Bobby and he indicated the weekends after Oct 13 would be very full. I was thinking about the first weekend in Oct. I'm sure others have ideas. Looking for some input for those that would like to go.

    Drdubb Rides Again!

    Had my first ride today since my shoulder replacement in November. Felt good. The key is to not fall down. My lifting limit on that shoulder is 25 pds.
