    De-farkled my NC700X yesterday, I’m picking up a 2017 Africa Twin Friday. I’ll post a Hepco & Becker skid plate and and maybe a couple more things in the days to come. I too will miss the frunk, but not the 17” front wheel on washed out dirt roads.

    Put the bike in the garage. Roads are too frosty for my liking. May warm up next week. Funny how I miss the rain...

    Looking forward to hearing about the new Africa Twin.

    I bought a '18 NC750x who had a metallic red Africa Twin DCT on the showroom floor. Told my wife it was my dream bike. She asked why I didn't buy it, I had her (attempt) to straddle the seat and she understood why I chose the NC750x instead. But damn that Africa Twin is just an astounding bike.

    Please keep us informed. With photos!

    For me there are non whatsoever. I replaced both rear bolts in the top clamp with those. Most of the bikes I've owned I set up like this - it's usually the most steady location for a Ram ball.

    I got the NC700X out yesterday afternoon for a 70 mile local ride. It was crisp but not really cold at 55 degrees and CAVU.

    35 to 38 all day. About 3 Celsius.
    I rode to a nearby town and rode in the Christmas parade with the Christian Motorcycle Association.
    Lots of happy kids.
    Riding at a walking pace for two miles is not easy.
    The learning aspect of the DCT was a little freaked out; riding back it shifted pretty strangely for a mile or two.
    The Hotwired gear I have was widely coveted.

    Still not riding yet, although I probably could. Either way, the weather, recovery, and not wanting to deal with the knee brace with Moto gear is keeping me off for now.
    I get 63 MPG, what do you get? Speeding tickets?
    I pack to camp but stay in a hotel because I have no idea what I'm doing...

    It will be there... recovery is the important thing for now!

    I had a blast this weekend!

    Saturday road out to Spicewood TX from Austin for some Opies BBQ it was a brisk 45 degrees F outside and about 45 minutes in I realized I really should have worn my balaclava. Then on Sunday I had learned my lesson and headed out with a group of folks from just west of town down a really fun twisty road called Hamilton Pool road. Ended at a place called Hays County Cafe near road 150. We had planned to ride into Kyle but left late and so the group that we were meeting road in

    This route is good fun if you can avoid the cars and are in central texas -> Google Maps
