    Ah, I see the 33.5" seat height now on other sites. Not sure where, or even if, I saw 32.7" seat height. I have been looking at a lot of specs on different bikes. I still don't think the height would be much of an issue. I didn't realize how heavy it was though in comparison to others. It's around 607 wet weight for manual trans, then DCT trans supposedly adds 23 more lbs to it. Which puts it around 50 lbs heavier than the BMW GS1200 (580 lbs) and over 100 lbs heavier than the Multistrada (511 lbs). Really don't see how they got the Multi to be that light, it seems like a giant motorcycle next to the NC.

    I'm still smoking it over though.

    Fast forward til around 6 minute mark for when he starts to ride some curves and twist on it a bit. Looks like just what I desire out of a motorcycle.

    Here is a quote from another forum regarding the throttle issue and by an owner of both an NC and a VFR1200X.

    "Use the NC700x and the VFR1200x the same.........75% paved and 25% gravel and fire/forest road.
    Sold a St1300 when I purchased the VFR.
    Right now the NC is sitting a lot..................as the VFR so smooth, great power, comfort. My only complaint ( annoying) on the VFR the throttle is snatchy ( very sensitive at speeds below 40 mph noticeable on rough roads). I have a throttle tamer which made it better."

    Finally got an email back from Hondabikepro. He said he went one tooth up on front sprocket and it had the shifting jacked all up. I guess I won't mess with mine.
