    I put Ricor Intiminators in my Vstrom 650 years ago & got a Ricor rear shock with spring weight to match my weight. Smooth but controlled ride. There is a winding country road I often take but it's a...

    $129.95 for both front & rear plus $13.50 for shipping. A little more than OEM price but should last longer. Comes in different colors for extra $$ but I got standard clear cover over silver....

    Stock brake lines are fine. I'll keep this bike until I'm too old to ride which may be another 10-15 years & by then I'd replace the lines anyway. I thought I'd make the most of that single front...
  5. Ordered Spiegler Stainless braided Brake Lines

    Shipped today but I'll wait until it's time to change brake fluid before installing. Maybe this winter. I would have waited to order but I learned sometimes the product is no longer available once I...

    To beak or not to beak

    The beak. Must have one if you ever leave pavement! But seriously, I used to despise beaks & thought if I ever get an NC700X I'll saw it off. Well, haven't done it yet & not sure I will. That gaping...

    It looks good. I'm thinking about using black header paint or high temperature grill paint on my header pipe. I removed the lower cowl so the bronze/copper color stands out a little more than I would...

    2 more I'm reading about, Metzeler M7 RR & Bridgestone S22. These are all dual compound tires. Harder in the middle, softer on the sides. Grip + decent mileage without squaring off.

    Sort of a deja vu moment for HD. In the 70s an Italian company made the Sprint 350 for Harley Davidson. Nice little bike, I used to want one.

    I took it off. Didn't really like the way it looked & sort of a grayish beige color. I got the bike last month, new leftover & only had time to put 451 miles on it so far. Surgery tomorrow so after...

    I use Grip Puppies because I have big hands but they do seem to reduce vibrations some in the bars.

    Sort of a blast from the past. Harley imported the Sprint 350 in the 70s but from Italy.

    I'm discovering I have many more options with the 17" front than I had with the 19" on my Vstrom. I don't have experience with any tires other than what came on my NC700X but 3 tires are on my radar...

    I got these for a quick visual check. I used another brand for years but they started failing so I switched to these, so far so good. They don't replace a tire gauge, just lets me know if I lost a...

    I learned the wires reach if the horn is pointed to the right but I wanted it pointed down & the wires were a little short. You'll see a white zip tie on the lower right of the frame where the wires...

    Louder Horn & cut down windscreen

    I got a Fiamm 72112 low tone snail horn for my Suzuki VStrom but never installed it & decided to put it on my Honda. Much louder. Sounds like a car horn. Actually it is. Didn't need a relay because I...

    The tires on my new 2014 are dated Nov 2013 so I'll replace them next Spring. Until then I won't push corners hard or ride in rain. They look ok, not dry rotted, hard or slippery feeling. I've read...

    Looks like that would be more comfortable than stock, maybe a little wider. I just got mine, haven't even taken it out of the box but probably won't install it until after I get hip surgery (in 2...

    I got caught in a thunderstorm years ago & haven't ridden in rain since. Lightening bolts dropping all around me & I rode like an idiot trying to get home. Front tire hydroplaned & swung left at...

    I've watched videos of riders lane-splitting at high speed in stopped traffic. All it takes is one person to open their door & send the rider to the E.R. & total the bike. I wouldn't lane-split if it...

  23. Those rubber things the wind screen screws go into

    I don't know what they're called. I ordered 4 from BikeBandit but they're "in progress" & haven't shipped. Anyone seen these in a store some place? I decided to put my wind screen back on but I cut...

    How do you like the Parabellum windscreen? I have a tall one for my VStrom for winters & like it. I just see over the top, no turbulence or noise. May get one for the NC700X this winter, haven't...
