    Hey guys and gals. I don't have an NC yet, but I thought I'd introduce myself anyway. I've been researching and have been to the dealer several times to sit on one. I'm really enjoying reading about all of your adventures on this board! Sounds like a great bike and I can't wait to get mine later this year. I'm currently riding a Victory bagger, so the NC will be a great second addition to the family. If there's anyone in central California who wants to ride, hit me up. I would love to see the NC perform on the road in person. Thanks.

    Hello Greg! Sounds like you and I may have to get together for a coffee sometime this summer. PM me anytime. I do not have much time in the spring and fall since I work in agriculture. I look forward to meeting and chatting with you in the future.

    Hey folks, just joined and by way of an intro I'm a motorcycling latecomer (turning 50 this year) who has only just taken the two-wheel plunge. Of course I'm addicted already.

    I started with a new CBR300R last year and quickly moved up to a used NC750X that I am gearing up for a cross-Canada charity ride this year - Canada Ride for Kids

    If it's OK with the moderators I'll start a thread for gearing up the bike and maybe post some updates of the 10,000km ride as I go. Fun times ahead.

    Hello,

    I'm Travis from Madison, WI. I'm thinking about getting an NC here maybe next week. I have a friend with one that will let me test ride his next week and if I like it I'll be picking one up. Currently I have a '94 CB1000 BigOne and an '05 DR-Z 400. I used to have an '05 BMW F650CS.

    I'm looking to ditch the BigOne if I like the NC. I wanted something lighter (the CB is almost 600lbs with a full 5.8 gal on board) and with FI.

    I joined the forum to look preemptively for issues and mods. It seems there is the usual budget bike issues like seat and suspension. Any friendly member want to point me towards some threads of common mechanical issues or must-have mods?

    Thanks,
    Travis

    Greetings from Chicagoland. A few weeks ago I picked up a NOS 2015 DCT model in red. I love it. I sold my Triumph 1050 Sprint ST that I rode for nine years and many thousands of happy trouble free miles. But, these old knees of mine aren't what they used to be, and my need/desire to slow down prompted me to sell the Sprint. I was always, and I mean always, speeding on that bike.

    The NC is a very decent motorcycle and I am slowly but surely making it mine. I took my seat to ADVANCED Custom Design ::: Motorcycle Seats and Saddlebags ::: Harley Davidson ::: Exotic Skins, Alligator, Crocodile, Calf-Skin, Leather, Ostrich, Python, Stingray, Custom Made Motorcycle Seats where he did a re-contour (raised the front) and added a pro pad to it, which has made it all day comfortable. I put some seal savers on that I secured with 11" velcro cable organizers instead of the provided zip ties, which allows me to easily remove them for cleaning. I ordered the Honda center stand and will install it when it arrives, and have some Bridgestone 023's on the way. I really don't like the stock tires....At All!!

    I already have a nice Revpack seat pack that I used on my Sprint, and it fits perfectly to the NC's pillion. I also ordered a Delkevic 9" stainless oval slip on, and in a couple months I'll probably go with a hyperpro street box kit for my suspension upgrade. I haven't figured out what to do about the windshield, maybe nothing, air management can be a tricky thing. I guess that's about it.

    I became a huge fan of not shifting a two wheeler when I bought a Piaggio BV350 scooter from my next door neighbor. He only put on 500 miles in two years so I got it for a song. Very nice scooter! Of course it's a CVT, but a very nice one that has a wet clutch instead of a centrifugal dry clutch. What this means is the BV350 launches immediately, no waiting for the motor to spool up and engage. Of course the DCT is very different from a CVT, but the no shifting aspect of the DCT is what sold me. I could go on and on...........

    Ciao for now
