Hello MWS... I too live in Oklahoma...Edmond to be exact. I transferred here from Albuquerque last summer to teach here. That member picture of yours looks more like Albuquerque than Oklahoma... I've got 31,000 miles on my 2012 NC700x. I ride it as a commuter.
Thanks for posting your valve adjustment for us all to view. I'll have to pick up the manual and try this myself. I used to adjust my BMWr80rt boxer once/year. This does look even easier. One question- does the valve cover gasket need replacing after you're done? Thanks again and safe and happy...
Welcome aboard the NC700x club....I got rid of my 1986BMWr80rt with its 33 mpg and 530 lbs. curb weight for my NC700x and 74 mpg. I also loved the downsize and agility of this bike. Way to go.... It definitely grows on you.
This was my first trip out of town on the bike and I took our Slovakian student, who is staying with us for a month, up to Jemez Springs. On the 120 mile trip the bike handled very well with some strong head/sidewinds of about 40mph. We were doing about 70-75. I can see that the seat comfort...
Welcome from the "Land of Enchantment"--New Mexico. Sorry to hear about your fork issue. Generally they are excellent bikes. I love mine and am getting about 74 miles to the gallon (380 km per tankful). I like the well-balanced feel of the bike at low speeds too. Enjoy!
Though modest in size, I like the cycle case pair that I placed on the bike. I bent and painted this bar and held it in place with two bungees to help support the bags. So far, so good. They were about $90.
For me, the Parabellum was easy to install. The 22" works well for me at 6 feet tall and does not impair any steering at low speed either. At high speed it has held up well for chest protection against gusty winds.
