    5 years is about the max for auto tires here in AZ. The dry rot becomes noticeable. There is no way I would have tires more than 5 years old on my motorcycle, again. Yes, I did have a 6 year old tire...

    Changed out the rear sprocket for the 41t. I took it out for a shakedown ride and I am VERY happy with it now. I did lose a little acceleration but since I can count on one hand the number of times I...

    I am always glad to hear of close calls where no one got hurt but maybe learned something. I am a trainer for truck drivers and commute 50 miles each way to work in Phoenix, usually on the bike....

    I also installed the 12oclock labs speedo correction last week and I am very happy with it. For me it was worth the $70 because I want to track the mileage as close as I can without doing that math.
  5. Sticky: Mine too. The larger front sprocket is better...

    Mine too. The larger front sprocket is better than I expected. It runs so much better on the freeway now. It doesn't look like it affected the fuel mileage much but we'll see what the trend is over...

    I'm with you there, I saw the title of this post and that Triumph is what I thought of first. There is no way I would ever buy one though. It's completely impractical, gets poor mileage and it has a...

    Installed the new chain and sprockets over the weekend. Changed out the front sprocket for the 17t. Put on the 12oclock labs speedoDRD last week. It runs great now and I don't notice much difference...

    Thanks Max for the doc and thanks Red Rider for bumping it up today. I am torquing the sprockets tomorrow and now I don't need to go look them up.

    Wow! another 2015 purchased new. I'm wondering how much Honda over-estimated that year's sales. Welcome to the club Dean!

    I actually wear dark clothes at work mostly because driving a truck is a little grimy. So, yes it gets HOT on my way home wearing black jeans and a dark workshirt but when I get home and get into the...

    I don't do much engine braking as I unlearned the habit a few years ago with cars. It was pointed out to me that changing brakes is easier than clutches and allowing the engine to idle is better than...

    Welcome Steve! This is a great bike for commuting. I have commuted over 20,000 miles on it since I bought my 2015 new May of '18. You have a lot in common with me as I had not been on a motorcycle in...

    lol, and I didn't see this until today. But since I already posted one in here with my truck I guess that I am out anyway.

    It's also been noted that the NC air filter is huge when compared to other bikes. In fact I think that it is similar in size to the filter in my wife's 6 cylinder Toyota. That size means that we...

    Yea, I saw that one before. I couldn't help but think about how much he looked like a cowboy wrestling a steer.

    Just to add - I drive a Kenworth Semi for work. It has an "automatically shifted" manual transmission. Of course it is different from a duel clutch system in that it uses computer controlled air...

    The NC is a great commuter bike. It is not, however, a great sport bike. It's not fast but it gets great mileage and is (relatively) cheap to maintain. The best way to ride it is to shift early and...

    U-Haul: Motorcycle Trailer Rental

    Uhaul has a great motorcycle trailer, I see them on the interstate all the time and it appears that they are about $15 a day.

    I just got home from work. More Saturday traffic than I like to deal with and it was 112 degrees (44.4 Celsius). Now I'm chillin' in the A/c with a Powerade before I start on the beer:cool:

    As I understand it that is basically correct. Android and Apple both stick orientation tags into the images that a lot of software doesn't read. The only way I've found to correct it is to upload to...

    Those are a bit taller and narrower than the originals but they appear to fit just fine.

    Of course I just measured the tread on mine and it's 10/32 (inch). By the time my tires are worn I'll be...
