Is the NC a boomerang bike for you?
Err, I guess so. I started getting the itch again a few months ago.

Brought this home today. This is about right for me timing wise. After I sold the 2012 in 2014 I was without an NC about a year before buying NC #2. I sold #2 about 18 months ago. Someone remind in 12 to 18 months how much I like the NC700/750 and DON'T SELL #3.

I wanted a 2018 or later to experience 745cc and the post '17 DCT upgrades but used bike prices are rising fast and I couldn't justify the price difference.

2013 DCT with 7300 one owner miles. Michelins, Corbin seat, some original Honda accessories, original Madstad first gen windshield (like 670cc's), Barkbusters, wider foot pegs, Puig hugger. Extras include a Seat Concepts extra seat, Leo Vince pipe and 3 other windshields. He said one was a Puig, one is a something-or-other, and the original one.

I took mine on my first licensed ride today, even if it was just to the grocery store 3 minutes from my house. Been riding around the neighborhood since I got it in preparation for the MSF class, which was Monday and Tuesday. Learning on the NC made riding the Groms in class ridiculously easy, and I had a blast. Went to the DPS office this morning to get my endorsement added.

It was a great feeling to take it out without worrying about getting a ticket or the bike impounded by the rozzers.

Nice bike Dave! I hear 2013 silver DCT bikes are the fastest :cool:

I rode my 2016 NC to work today and noticed I have just over 9,050 miles on the odometer......it only had 4,100 on it when I bought it less than a year ago. And I've got 3 bikes that I ride! 4,100 miles in 4 years from the original owner should be considered neglect. LOL.

Bought a stinking expensive tire machine and balancer combo kit from No-Mar.

A month ago or so my buddy helped me change my rear tire with a cheapy stand and gouged my wheel with his spoons. He's a great guy so I didn't tell him how angry that makes me. I did tell him I don't want to use his machine ever again though.

Awesome! You'll love having a tire changing tool.

I use my No-Mar a lot. Get a Mojolever, it is amazing for mounting tires. Dismounting is the same as the No-Mar tools. MojoLever

I took my pain meds and rode in a circle in the 90 degree heat in full armor and a camera clipped to my jaw. I did not go anywhere, but i sure looked good for a whole two hours.

Kidding. The circle was 20 miles across north west Dallas.

Enduro riding or standup riding is handy in traffic. People see the helmet and armor above roof tops. I can see out further and steer with my ankles and knees. I can guide the bike in and out of the lane with knee projections. I never turn the bars. If I stomp a foot down and project an opposite knee forward, the knee slides against the trunk and the bike tilts. The bike moves under my still torso. In my shadow, it looks like the bike turned itself and I went along for the ride.

Leg and knee steering. Projecting the bike from my hips. Cool beans!
