    Hello Moto Ladies

    Hello NC700 ladies! I have been riding for 4 years now and started out on a scooter after riding on the back of my hubs bike for 28 years. I finally took the plunge took courses and got my license. I ride pretty much year round, love commuting and rips on the highway. I just purchased a barely used 2012 NC700S the other day because I was looking for a light, comfortable, fuel efficient bike (who am I kidding about that - it just means I will ride more) bike and sat on the NC about 3 years ago and fell in love with the style and size. Finally I found one that wasn't going to break the bank. In the 4 years of riding I have come full circle and decided to take a riding instructors course to mentor new riders and I need a good reliable bike and the NC fit the bill. I am looking forward to adding bike farkles! Who needs diamonds when you have a motorcycle, I am happy when I get bike goodies for presents.

    Looking forward to hearing what you ladies have done with your bikes.

    Cheers!

    I am excited to get my bike and make it mine by adding farmers ( farkles is what I meant to say, but I am leaving it because it is pretty funny). that reflect who I am. Not sure yet, what I'm going to do first! Count down is here-- my bike should arrive next Tuesday! Sad thing though, I will be out of town till late Wdnesday.

    Would like to see what you have done w your bike!?

    Hi ladies

    i am a newbie, this is my first bike, just picked it up in May this year and I too am still getting the feel of it although after a 4 hour ride over the weekend I am convinced I need to do something about the seat height and feel. I am also thinking about a little bit taller screen, maybe more comfortable grips and some bags for more storage. The frunk is definitely what sold me on this bike. My bike already came with the centre stand and a dc port in the frunk.

    Nebraskagirl, which or what "farmers" did you add to your bike? Are the farmers comfortable on your bike? Do they reflect who you are? Curious minds want to know!

    Have you seen the farkle thread yet? It was a painful realization that customization can cost diamonds. I would love to add a farmer though. Can I get one online?

    Actually I think you can get a farmer online...

    Anyway, here are two versions of my lovely lady

    You can't really see the skid plate, but it's there. The big windshield will go back on for this weekend and probably stay there. It improves gas mileage by about 5mpg and makes for more comfortable freeway miles. I've been thinking about putting the trunk back on, and will certainly do it by the time A: I start touring again or B: my daughter can ride pillion and use it as a back rest.
    Eagerly awaiting the day tiny feet can reach the passenger pegs...
