    I am of a different experience. I prefer my motorcycle luggage to be the side-loading configuration. A little planning organization makes them easy to use. I make partitions that fit inside the...

    I'm pretty sure any self respecting thief would leave an NC alone, at least in North America, and move on to a Harley or sport bike that has demand for stolen parts.

    I tracked my 2012 manual for about 15,000 Fuelly miles and averaged ~66 mpg. My 2015 DCT has Fuelly tracked 18,738 miles and has an average at ~63 mpg. I never prioritize fuel economy in my riding...

    The OEM passenger grab rails have a hollowed out slot on the underside of them. Thin metal hook bungee cords hook under it just fine or use Rok Straps with their soft loops around the rails.

    Trying to change it half-asked is not ideal, I think we agree on that. Having just replaced steering bearings on the Wing I'm thinking a proper fork oil job on the NC is a simple half day job but not...

    I replace one of these trim clips maybe every 20,000 miles, or never. I can afford the Honda OEM ones at that rate.
