    My story with NC 750 XD

    There is a time and desire to tell a story about my relation with my bike.
    So, given the Honda NC750HD 2015, white.
    As a result of the unbridled desire to customize and make the ride as convenient and comfortable as possible, as well as the love of screwing the nuts, the following was done:
    Saddle SHAD, bars and baggage system Iron Skil, Givi cases, foot pegs by SW Motech , hand protection with turn signals, Front fender extension, Hager on the rear wheel and . Anti-fog lights. Heated grips OEM.

    And then began the torment and walking around . While thinking started doing maintanance. I changed all the fluids, all filters, there was a chain and sprockets, so I also changed it. In the process of replacing the sprocket climbed to the shock absorber and didn't like it. Went to look for alternatives, found at Touratech, were shoked by the price. Received an unplanned bonus and spat on the price, ordered with the springs for fork. While the wheels were removed, I put two-valve nipples . Not to unscrew TPMS during pumping. And yes, TPMS from Aliexpress. After talking with teammates, put the high glass (made by NC enthusiast - Max). It was last year.
    While New Year vacation I went to the garage for some household chores, threw back the cover, sat on a bike (Iím really not the only one?), Walked around again, looked, and it seemed to me that the swing arm made of a square tube, is pretty ugly. Again, Google search and this beautiful forum! already last week aluminum beauty from Integra arrived (while waiting for warming so that it would be a bit more comfortable to mess around in the garage). Still, the next is DVR (not yet arrived).
    And I understand perfectly well that I would never return even half of the money invested, and the fact is that all those funds spent, would be enough to upgrade the bike for such a beautiful Africa or a beautiful VFR, but I love my Bibi)) and I like his "languid" ride. But damn, is it with all the bikes so?

    PS Pardon my French! it is not my native language. Cant upload pics
    but its here

    looks nice. I'd like to see the swingarm swap.

    What rear shock? I think that's more important than swingarm.

    Looks good, and yes many bikes go through this process to become "right" for their owner.

    It's a Touratech just like this (part # 01-405-5855-0)
    And it does realy works. Though, better to be instaled with progressive springs for the fork.
    Difference before and after was tested on 5-6 local NC riders. Every one noticed it, but then some one found that rear shock from VFR Crosstourer are fitting our bikes as well ))) (just bolt on )
