    newbie in in

    Just wanted to stop in and say hi. Been riding since 97. Picked up a nc700x on saturday. My main ride up to this was a 2007 vfr (which I'm keeping for solo riding). So far I have really enjoyed this bike. Center stand will be in on Tues. I will post a how to for those of you wanting to put one on.

    Welcome to the forum Indy. My last ride was a 2006 VFR. This bike is much easier to ride and a hole lot lighter. Think my first addition will be a bigger windscreen. To catch all these Mosquitos.

    After looking at the bike (before riding) I thought the first thing I would add would be a taller windscreen. Wrong the little one does an amazing job of keeping the wind off the chest. The full faced helmet takes care of the bugs

    It really depends on the size / height of the rider (upper body).
    For me, the bigger screen helps, but the standard screen is "just enough".

    I'd consider other aftermarket ones, only if money is a problem.
    Have fun!

    I'm 6'3" or 190.5 cm (for you metric types) so I would think that is a pretty good test for the stock windscreen
