Hey Ken, I was just admiring one of your bike photos. Curious to know where you purchased the back support for seat and which crash bars you installed? Both look good!

Sherl, yes I still have the windshield. Where are you located, (zip code) and I'll give you an estimate on shipping.

Traded my 2016 NC700XD (2466 miles) and 2015 Gold Wing Lvl 1 40th Anniversary Edition (28089 miles) in on a 2020 Africa Twin Adventure Sport ES DCT. I’ve wanted an Africa Twin for years but felt the seat was too high for my 30” inseam. During the NC Forum Gathering at the Blue Ridge Motorcycle Campground in May, I got to sit on one. I was hooked.
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.
I bought the NC to go fishing around the lakes. Happy to say I went fishing with it and caught a nice small large mouth bass. Then I rode the NC out the gravel roads through the nature area instead of the blacktop. What fun!
Hey there. Do you use the same login (MZ5) on a gun forum as well. I thought I saw you out there.

Yes, I try to use olythom as my login to all of the forums that I frequent. Hope you’re doing well and staying healthy.
This lockdown has allowed me to do a ton of reloading...
Take care and I’ll see you in the forums.

A little extra work for me; critical infrastructure. Making me do things from home some days, though. Hope you stay well. Cheers!
Researching parts and prices to repair my 2015 NC700X XCT ABS. Retail prices add up to about $1500. Cant locate a right side OEM panniers. Any help out there.

It might just be me, but I feel as if your post would be seen by many more of the forum members if you posted in the "marketplace" forum, "parts wanted"
Unfortunately I can't help you, but good luck and Safe riding
Hi SS, I'm interested in purchasing your stock NC700X front seat. I'll pay the $65 as you asked and you can sell the rear seat to the other guy. Or if you'd rather ship them both to me I'll send him the rear seat for shipping. Let me know if it's still available.

Went for a 45 minute ride yesterday to try out the Firstgear Kiki Hi riding boots I just bought. I wear a narrow width and it has been difficult to find riding boots that fit. After reading the reviews I saw that these boots are sized a bit narrow. Fit great! The other issue is that I have high arches. It took years to figure out that a boot with the side zipper is what I needed.
Hello, is the skid plate still available? Shipping to 44028, just west of Cleveland, thanks.

Due to the size of the box, I’m seeing the best I can do on shipping is $40-$50 dollars from Illinois . If you’re interested in the skid plate, I’m willing to call the shipping an even $30 and I’ll just eat whatever it might be over that. Does it matter to you if it ships UPS or USPS? Either way it’s 2-3 day transit time. UPS is a tad cheaper so that’s what I would do.

Thanks

230 sounds great, and I have no preference on shipping. What's best method of payment for you?

OK, $230 it is. PayPal is the best payment method, but only using the friends and family method to avoid credit card and PayPal charges. If you need to use a credit card I’d have to up the price to compensate. My PayPal account is [email protected]. I’ll be shipping it from central Illinois. Thanks!
Hi, I just bought a rsv4 shock. I wondered what adjustment you did to yours ? By chance, would you have any pics /data about preload, rebound and compression settings ?
On Christmas Day my wife and I did 118 mile ride, 2 up, on the 2016 NC700XD around Dale Hollow Lake. Stopped in to take a look at the state park in Kentucky. Interesting overlook of Trooper Island. A place where state troopers can take their sons and do some father son bonding. This was our second 100 mile ride and I believe she has had about enough of the stock seat. In spite of the seat it was a great ride.

Sargent makes good seats for front and back. Russell Day-Long is the best if money is no object.

Thanks for that info. I need to look at those prices again. The stock seat is rough on me in on 90 minutes of riding.
Had a couple of static lay downs in the first year of owning the ST, but not during the last 11. Lately have been concerned laying it down at low speed. The nc has solved that problem for me.
