    i don’t know about the Bridgestone, but I know that PR4s have very soft sidewalls, making them among the easiest tires to mount. Perhaps that’s why you got the old one off but not the new one on.

    I finally got some things done to the bike yesterday.
    Repaired frunk (although it was so convenient not having to use the key to open it!) and had them replace the air filter while all those parts were removed.
    Oil and filter(s) change and then had them replace the crappy ceramic weights that had fallen off my rear wheel. Shops here in CA can't sell those older-style weights that clamp onto the rim because of the lead in them.

    Went for a ride in Malibu, up Latigo Canyon to the top of The Snake, which is still closed after the big fire last year. I'd been wondering why I haven't been seeing any videos from rnickeymouse. Mulholland Drive is closed just past the Rock Store, but at least the bridge in Cornell is open with 1 lane.
    Lots of incredible houses that I used to see are now gone. Just an empty foundation and burned stumps. Even the one that is surrounded by grape vines burned. Though the grapes are doing well!

    Went back through Encinal Canyon and passed a group of about 10 riders going the other way. The roads that are open are doing pretty well, but there is still a lot of construction going on, both to the electrical lines as well as the few lucky properties that can be rebuilt.

    Rarely does it happen, but today I flogged it on a long straight with high visibility past a bunch up that just wouldn't go around a slow mover. Can't say I've every really needed or even wanted extra horses, but today I thought they would be nice to have on tap!! Of course I'm not sure that I'm willing to give up the highly reliable, efficient horse I have for that once every other year or so time I wish there was a turbo or nitro button!! That MV Agusta Turismo Veloce Lusso SCS with an automatic clutch would have been nice today!!

    The VFR1200X DCT would be the answer to your needs, nearly 130 hp on tap in the form of a V4 would get you around anything as quickly as you need. I am really thinking about picking one up and selling the nc and my cruiser. They are so badass. Shaft drive too!

    Man that VFR1200x is a nice bike and super cool that it has DCT available. Although, for that price i think i'll keep my NC. Even with me tipping the scales at 230lbs it has plenty of power for me. I've had it fully loaded with 9 days of camping gear and it can still pull high mountain passes(i have 2 in my area i regularly ride) at 65mph and it will even 2-up anytime i have the opportunity to bring a friend! :{)

    Today, i had a Dr's appt over in Spokane Wa and despite the stormy weather/rain i rode the NC. Afterwards, yup you guessed it, i rode for some PIE!! I found a new spot to get some great, warm, fresh, homemade Strawberry/Rhubarb pie with homemade whipped cream on the side!! :{)

    I finished the repairs to my NC

    Handlebars
    Foot peg
    Mirrors
    Shifter assembly

    The bars were a simple swap over, went smoother and easier then expected actually

    Foot peg, just installed a new one

    The replacement mirrors are some cheap things I got off Amazon, but they've got built in blinkers which is pretty cool, the one consistent complaint about cheap after market mirrors is the edge not being ground or having anything applied to stop glare at certain angles, I'm planning on applying a thin layer of black gasket sealant around the edge, hopefully that works

    The most challenging part was the shifter assembly, it was bent on 3 places, bench vise and a monkey wrench strained it out in 10 min, the assembly was ripped off the rear mount and hanging from the transmission side

    The rear mount was stripped out and oblong, I drilled it to round again, made my own heli coil by getting 2 nuts and grinding them round then pounding them into the aluminum hole. The steel mounting holly isn't a bolt it's very specifically for that part so I was luckily able to straighten the thread portion, it all buttoned up nicely and is working perfectly, I test rode it across town to get some tie straps from harbor freight 2019: What did you do to/with your NC700 today?

    The mirrors with turn signals

    I haven't ridden much with them so I'll hold of on an actual review or recommendation but the lights work well so that's cool

    Using the hazards to get the blinkers going, regular turn signals on the outside and 3 blue dots on the mirror itself to remind the rider your signal is on
