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!
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.
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.
