Well, after lots of looking and thought I will be buying a new 2018 red NC 750 x tomorrow. It was between this and a Moto Guzzi V85 tt Travel. I will be setting up the NC 750 x with the Honda center stand and hand guards. GIVI V37 NA PLX Monokey side cases and D1146ST screen. Its winter in north central Wisconsin so I will be waiting a while to ride it. My 2019 Road King will be sitting in the garage a lot this summer and I will be selling the 2015 Triumph T100 if my wife makes me.

Good choice.

NOS '18 NX750's?
I thought Honda was only stuck with a bunch of NOS '18 & '19 Goldwings.
Leftovers are out there. NOS Blue manual ‘19 in Arkansas for $7185 +TTL. No freight, no setup charges.

Jealous (constantly lamenting getting rid of mine). Congratulations on the bike!

Had a second home in south central Wisconsin... Oxford. Sold it in 2018. Gorgeous state and I miss it.

Yes, Wisconsin is a great state to ride. Lots of winding hilly roads. However I would trade you for Florida right now.

Welcome Jack. I think you'll really enjoy the 750X. I had a 700X that I put 20,000 miles on and really enjoyed, and then foolishly sold it to buy a new 2020 BMW F750GS. What did I learn? I don't like the GS at all. So a month ago I picked up a 2018 NC750X with 800 miles on it, and now I have to sell the GS and take a bath.

Not much riding weather there in north Wisconsin right now. My brother lives in Delavan, and I spent a year at Marquette Law school many years ago, so I have some experience of Wisconsin winters. Good luck with your new NC. I've had 20+ bikes in my life, and IMHO it's the best all around bike I've ever owned.

Haha I did the same thing except it was a Tiger 800 between two NCs. Of all the bikes I’ve had two RTs and two NCs and I won’t rule out a third in the future. It’s such a great all around motorcycle.

I have thought about buying a BMW a few times.I go and sit on them, ride them, just never pull the trigger. Two dealers about 100 miles from me had a new 2018 and one of them had a new blue 2019. Love the red with the silver wheels.

I had a 2018 Gold Wing Tour, when I bought it just after they were released there was shortages and hard to find. Later in 2018 everybody that wanted one had one. Looks like they are cleared out around here finally.

I recently sold my much loved BMW R1200R because my 2019 NC750X is so versatile and entertaining to ride I was putting no miles on the Beemer. I also want to put another dualsport in the garage. I have raised the NC with a rear lift kit and I upgraded the front and rear suspension which ups the fun factor here in mountains.

I am waiting for spring as fast as I can. I am preparing for my riding season to start by getting the 750x ready. So far I have ordered the Honda center stand and hand guards. I think today I will be ordering the GIVI Dolomti 37 liter aluminum bags. Still up in the air about the windscreen but leaning towards the GIVI.

Lots of people find that screen unsatisfactory. There are a couple FB groups for NC750 bikes and its common to read about complaints about Givi and Puig screens. People add wings, cut holes in them, etc just to try to end buffeting. Of course your usage nd experience may differ.

I would like a screen I can look over. I have a large screen on my Road King that has a better still air pocket than most of the full dressers I have had. So that is my high mile days bike. My Bonneville has a nose high screen, no buffeting but a fair amount of wind noise. Thanks for the heads up.

Well I am all excited. My Givi screen and panniers arrived Sunday. I decide to go with the Trekker Dolomiti for that adventure look. Honda center stand and hand guards coming tomorrow, and so is my bike. Now I just need some 40 degree weather.

Pretty sure all screens designed for these NC bikes are designed so you look over the top of them. Cal Sci, Puig, Madstad, Honda tall and Givi all are designed to look over the top of on an NC
