I picked up my NC750X DCT today! Got to give it a short shake down ride, only 17 miles, but WOW! I only reached for the clutch lever 5 times! Lol! So smooth, shifts were seamless. It seemed to be bogging down in 6th gear against the wind but then I realized I was dragging the rear brake. ‍♂️ oh well, the neuropathy in my feet appears to be the culprit. That or I'm just an idiot, lol. OMG! The hand warmers!! I couldn't believe how nice they were. I would have ridden longer but it's cold and I don't have proper cold riding gear yet. It came with "0" miles on the clock but will soon have a bunch more to keep it company.

That is so cool.

And to get 0 miles on the ticker, I would have had to take a picture of that also. That blue does look good.

Yup you need some good riding gear if we are going to try to keep up with The Ferret!

Had to go out and move my NC behind the quad with snow blade in the garage. Woke up to an inch of white death on the ground and it's still coming down hard. Looking at weather app says it's going to snow all day. I am going to confidently say there will be no riding for me today except on the quad lol

I hate that but it is January going on to February.

I got to do about 110 miles today. It was 37°F when I left and it is 40°F now that I got home. I did run into some heavy mist for a few miles but I had some good riding gear on and it wasn't bad.

I cut across some of the Cherokee "reservation". The sign on the store has some Cherokee written language on it.

Then I went to the three state boundary marker.
For the picture I was standing in Oklahoma, looking across Arkansas at my bike which was in Missouri.

Today, I did what I do normally on any day the roads aren't icey- grabbed my backpack, geared up, rolled out of the driveway in neutral to not wake up the kids, and commuted to work. Getting my miles and experience on the short drive to and from my work, cruising the back route to blow off steam after a long day.

That is similar to what I do.

After getting 2 1/2" of snow yesterday wasn't sure I'd get out today, but roads were fine for 30 miles @ 35 degrees

Day 20 of riding a beautiful day in the Ohio Valley 42 degrees and sunny for today's 50 mile ride

Tonight they are forecasting a Winter Weather Advisory for tonight into tomorrow with accumulating snow. Booooo
I usually ride to work but with a similar snow advisory here, I will drive to work this evening.

I took my NC750 to the track. Not the best track bike but it is the best all-round bike that does everything. I still managed to stay in front of many litre sports bikes as the Honda drives so well out of corners. Managed to use up ALL of the tread width by wearing down the foot pegs. 27 degrees and beautiful (80 degrees F)

Not the first time that a well ridden one of these humble motorcycles has given a good account of itself. I believe another member (or former member) on here visited the race tracks regularly with good outcome also.
