    Anyone to the Blue Ridge Parkway?

    My wife and I came down from North Central Pennsylvania to drive the Blue Ridge Parkway on Saturday and Sunday. While pulling out from an overlook towards the lower part of North Carolina on Sunday I saw what I believed, at such a quick glance, to be a black NC700X. Any of our NC brothers...

    Push starting an NC

    Can you push start an NC? Our new battery is completely dead and a small portable jump starter would not bring the dash to life. So we tried push starting it to get it to the Honda Dealer. Out of 5 tries on a small hill twice the dash lit for a second or two. But I ran out of hill...

    Is the NC700X a touring bike?

    Hello everyone! My wife and I took our NCX down to her family's farm on Memorial Day. That is a 90 minute drive. Both going down and coming back our back sides became sore as possible. We do have the stock seat. I know the stock seats have a rep as a ride killer. But my...

    Lone Honda NC amongst a sea of Harleys

    I just wanted to tell everyone here, especially those that may be contemplating whether or not to get a Honda NC700X, how we were at a large motorcycle Blessing church service this past Sunday. Our small, but menacing, red NC was parked prior to the ride alone in the midst of maybe 300-400...
