    Me too. I don't recall it but someone posted a pic recently and I just did what they did.
    If it was you, well, thanks.

    Same here. Kuryakin(?) is top of the line stuff. A bit expensive but worth it I think. These would take a lot of the abuse in a slide.

    I just acquired a similar set, but the frame mounts are too small and wont fit mt NC. So, i have to buy/fab a set of frame tube clamps as they want $52.00 plus S+H for a 1.35" set!! Uuaarrgh! :{

    I saw a CXT700 pictured for sale the other day and it looks like their pegs are in the right place to start with! :{)

    Give one a ride some time. The controls are slightly forward - significantly forward compared to the NC - and while the seat is comfortable, that forward peg position becomes an issue after awhile as all of your weight is on your tailbone. After you take a pothole or two and a set of railroad tracks that you can’t lift your butt off of because your feet are too far forward, you’ll likely have a different opinion on how well that bike sits. At least that was my own experience on one. The NC just needs a second set out front to stretch the legs on once in awhile.
