    Purchased a couple of Shinko 705's this week. Had the dealer mount the tires, I put the wheels on the bike. What a PITA. If I ever have to do that in the field, I might set it on fire and leave it. I've done this several times and still cannot do it smoothly without profanity.

    Added a RAM ball mount to the handlebar. Removed one bolt and replaced it with the ball mount.

    Nothing. Notice that this chart is in miles per hour. 50 mph = 80 kph.2019: What did you do to/with your NC700 today?-d60403c2-3e47-455b-9f2d-bf5dfbf4d6ef-jpg

    Sorry, we seemed to have sent it your way. I didn't work yesterday because of the high winds in Winslow. If I didn't want to drive a 75,000 pound truck in it, I sure wouldn't ride my bike.

    Used it as a tool tray to put Happy Trail Pannier racks on my Africa twin. The weather is suppose to be nice enough to ride tomorrow. But my road will be so muddy that NC will probably be what I ride. The younger, taller, prettier virgin younger sister will probably stay at home, i gotta break her in a bit before i ride her hard and put her away wet.

    Went out for a bit today, just to blow the dust off. Wanted to stay out longer, until I realized the time changed, and I lost an hour from what I thought I had. damn grown up stuff getting in the way.

    This is great intel! While I was out I had real trouble keeping the bike from sinking into soft terrain when I stopped. I also have the SW ALU-Rack and was planning on getting that adapter. Thanks for sharing this information.

    As far as what I did today I rode to work. Saturday I got my radiator guard and threw it on really quick and easy. The biggest hurdle was that to get the bolts to line up on the top I had to partially tighten the support bracket. If I tightened it all the way or left it off the bolts wouldn't make it through.

    Yea, I like to 'thank' the rest of the country for altering time again. It's stupid and now I have to get up an hour earlier anyway. At least traffic will be a little lighter at 5 am. Unfortunately our rush hour does move a little after DST due to the number of Arizonans that have there start times changed even though we don't do that.

    I finally got my bike back from the shop today. Last time they get a crack at it. Parts and labor were over $1000 for the 12k service plus I had them check the valves early and it needed tires. They also did an oil change against my wishes. What was really frustrating was that they said it would just take one day and then called me last Monday to tell me that they had broken a valve cover fastener and had to special order it. The bike wasn't done until last Thursday but I wasn't able to pick it up before today. On top of all of that last week was the best weather that we've seen in Phoenix in months, then I had to ride home in the rain today. Yea, no doubt I'm going to do the next service myself, I just didn't have the time last week. Of course, if I had known that I would be without it for a week then I would've made time.
