    That’s how I run the Airhawk on mine (when I run it).

    That’s what I heard as well. I had a little too much air. I was floating a bit forward and back. Not so much side to side though.

    My reason for purchase is to use it on my trip this summer. I learned last summer that the ST1300 seat gets rough after a few thousand miles.

    I thought I would give it a try on the NC. It bunches up a bit in front. I think that if I drop some air I might stay put on the seat and it may not bunch as much.

    We’re in the middle of a week of rain, so further testing is going to wait for better weather.

    After i returned home from riding the NC to work again today, i did some trial fitting of the gear that i'm taking with me on my 2700 mile trip to 3-Step Hideaway, Ouray Co, Telluride, Cortez, 4 corners, Page and Ely and back up through Boise and home! After the trial load/fitting i went for a 10 mile ride and it feels great! Unload, repack and get ready to leave Friday morning! :{)

    Supposed to be taking my wife's 2016 NC700x into the dealership today but the weather is being less than cooperative. Thunder and lightning, very very frightening.

    We are supposed to get a break in the storms from about 11:30am to 1:30pm so I'll get it into the shop to get the work done. I'll just get it there a bit later than planned.

    Mods that should be happening today ... weather permitting
    1. Lower the front end about an inch.
    2. Install the adjustable lowering rear links and lower the rear end about an inch.
    3. Wire in the "Admore" taillights that are part of the GIVI V35 side cases. Lights are installed in the side cases, but the wiring is not tapped into the bike's wiring.
    4. Install new Denali DRL LED lights on the front forks. The lights are waiting at the parts department at the dealership.
    5. Install the adjustable billet kickstand

    Used the NC as a parts ferry today.
    Working on my truck and camper to get ready for Memorial Day weekend. Needed a new hitch ball mount. The 1” rise comes with the ball on the reverse as a 2” drop. Threw the hitch in the frunk and went to my Father’s-In-Law house to use the impact. Swapped the ball to the other side and rode back home.
    That frunk sure is useful.

    That frunk got me a curry takeaway for three the other night. Love that bike.

    Nice 140 round trip this morning for a VERY brief time at work (kind of using the office as my reason to ride.) Used some freeway and county roads to get there but then looked for new roads (without center lines) that wound about through woods and field on the way home. Took much longer on the return trip. Aahhh...

    So yesterday, I upgraded from the stock exhaust to the Coffman's Shorty Exhaust. I even decided to make a fine video for everyone to enjoy and here kinda what the exhaust sounds like on the bike!



    Enjoy everyone!

    I ran up to Tortilla Flat this morning. Round trip from my house is only about 2 hours. but it is one of the best runs nearby. It has lot's of curves, scenic views and the road is now in great condition. Unfortunately, there can be a lot of vehicles hauling boats and once into the curves there are no sanctioned passing zones, but with a little attention to your environment you can see that viability is pretty good in most spots. Getting up early in the morning, even though it's Sunday is a help since Tortilla Flat doesn't open until 9 am. Although I think that if I do it again I'll get a tinted shield for my backup helmet. They've put in pull outs in some curves but don't expect everyone to use them.

    Adjusted my chain and sprayed some lube on it.

    Yes folks. It’s about as exciting as it sounds.
