    Picking up my NC700x in the morning!

    Headed out on a 4 hour venture tomorrow to pickup my new to me 2012 Nc700x in the morning! Driving out with my buddy, then riding her home! She was bought new as a leftover, and has 1,800 mile on her. I have been on bikes for the last 25 years, both on and off-road, and I haves owned quite a few bike over the years. I plan on using this to commute, and I am also an avid mountain biker, so I have my eye on a setup to haul my mtb with me and use some cases for storage of my gear....total 2 wheel trips!

    I know I will have tons of questions, and like most crazy bikers, I doubt I will be able to leave the bike well enough alone, here is my dream far kale list if you have any suggestions:

    Hand guards
    Light bar/crash bar with lights
    Rear rack and side panniers
    Center stand
    And possibly an exhaust just to make me heard....


    Can't wait to hear from you all!

    Life is Wonderful, if it isn't you may be doing it Wrong!

    18 centuries of the choice, 'believe this way or die', & always chosen life, is a lineage difficult to separate from. I understand. But do not fear my belief science created the universe, I'll never say "Big Bang's Will" made me do you harm. We are a genuinely free & peaceful lot.

    Why not seize the pleasure at once? -- How often is happiness destroyed by preparation, and foolish planning? Just do it. Shut the frunk up and Ride !!!!!!!!!!

    Probably a light MTB but you have to feel that back there.

    Legally i think you'd have to put a red flag on that.
