    Seen in the wild

    Well I have been watching for an NCX in the wild... but haven't seen one. But this past Sunday I stopped in a local KFC and ran into the finance guy at the Dealership where I bought my NCX. He told me he had seen his first NCX in the wild that past week on his way to work... what's more he had realized that he KNEW the owner... it was ME!

    I was on my way home from work and saw my last bar flashing on the console and decided to stop for gas.

    He told me when he got to work that day, he told everyone there, that he had seen two very rare things on his drive into work that day. The first was an NCX in the wild! The second was a much rarer thing.... he saw an NCX at a gas station getting GAS!!!! LOL

    This bike DOES have a reputation on getting great gas millage!
    on NC700x, also have a VFR 750

    The only one I've seen in the wild was in Las Vegas. I was in an autozone parking lot changing oil in mine and one rode up to the stop light and took off. Didn't get to talk to him or I would have told him about this site and gotten a pic of the two together

    In 13000 miles haven't seen one yet! In the wilds the hardest to find is all ways the most pursued. And I know it don't really matter, I'm quite happy.Seen in the wild-6-jpg

    2 weeks after I bought mine, while waiting for the ferry to Seattle, another 2012 NCX parked right next to mine. I have Honda's saddlebags and trunk, his are Givi's hardcase set. Bought from the same dealer and we live maybe 20 miles apart, commuting very similar routes.

    I've seen two. A guy I work with has one and I saw one at the Leesburg Bike Festival about 2 months ago. Come to think of it, I haven't seen the one at work in a couple of months either. The NC is more a solitary beast. They don't herd like Harley's.

    I haven't seen any other NCX's out there yet...but mine can be seen a fuel stop daily! My commute is 144 miles round trip so the next morning I need to fill up on the way in to work.

    Saw my first one in the wild today. Had to go to San Francisco to see it.

    Previous: Kawasaki MT1A 75 (small fat tires, auto clutch), CB400 (Hawk), and after a 20+ year hiatus a NC700X

    I just got back from the ROT rally in Austin this week end, and still nothing to report in the wild. I'm begining to think it would be easier to find a Jack-o-Lope.Seen in the wild-5-jpg

    I have seen a couple. Someone that lives in North Hollywood has one, and I see him on my Ambulace routes... The dealer where I bought mine ( N Hollywood Honda ) had three that I know of. And all of them sold. I got the only DCT they were able to get ahold of so far. Everytime I visit, he tells me that he has trouble getting the DCT models in his stock... I don't know if that's still the case...
    Aloha !!!
