    I am a retired marine, and at 39 years old I went to full time school to get my BS in Electronics Engineering Technology. Second or third best thing I ever did! I travel for work and ride my 2015 Gold Wing to work, nearly everyday. I do love riding. I also love working on everything I own.
    I hope I can post as useful information as I have been reading. Got any questions, just send me a message.

    Keep the rubber side down!
    Welcome to the forum and good luck with your bike.

    Hi from Birmingham

    Hello! My name is Stephen, AKA Cheeseburger

    i'm from Central Alabama, I just picked up a 2016 NC700XD DCT ABS with 13k miles on it.

    I've been riding motorcycles since 2006 and have Three other motorcycles.
    1992 Goldwing Aspencade
    2004 Kawasaki Vulcan 750
    1981 Suzuki Gn400

    I bought my NC to commute on, i've been looking at one since they were announced around 2011ish? I can't remember. But only recently got to a point where I could buy one.

    My NC has the OEM Saddlebags, Madstad adjustable windshield, unbranded crash bars, Centerstand, and Givi Hand guards.

    So far i'm still trying to get used to the DCT, i found it unsettling at first but now I really am starting to like it.

    the amount of activity on the forum is exciting, i've been a part of several different Automotive forums since 2008, I've found forums to be an invaluable resource for information, and i'm sure this one will be no exception.

    I am like you when it came to the DCT transmission, at first I hated it, but now I love it!

    Welcome to the forum...

    Ok, hopefully this is a better spot to place a few pictures of my rides. The one that is missing is the 1975 GL1000

    Hello from southern California. I just purchased a '18 NC750X (standard version) last night. It's been a long time since I have been on anything Honda (I think my last Honda product was a Honda Shadow from the early 90's).

    My NC will be serving as a commuter to get me to work and back, along with occasional trips to a college. I currently have several bikes, mostly KTM's, so it's not fair to compare the NC to bikes with 2-3 times the horsepower and performance....but gotta say, within the 90+ miles I had to ride it home, I was quite impressed with the performance. I wasn't sure what to expect when I rolled out of the dealership, but the low-end pickup and torque and ability to handle highway speeds of 80mph+ was impressive. I cannot think of a bike that fits as a urban commuter as well as the NC750X. I can see why this bike is so popular in Europe. I plan on keeping this bike until the wheels falls off or the engine finally quits....and from what I have reading, it will be a long time before that happens. Not much mods planned other than some heated-grips for the winter months and centerstand to aid in maintenance.
