    Sounds like you have some issues, none that I have with my 2012. Have to admit, I do not spend much time at 75 mph, but it will see 75 to 80 with passing, and when I've been out chasing a friend with...

    As a former Missourian, from Douglas county Ozarks, I would say the NC is a great bike for all those wandering back roads. So easy to ride and keep up. If the dealer has not been selling them lately...

    shields

    We all seem to have different tolerances or what ever you want to call it to noise. I prefer a "naked motorcycle". I'm 6' 1" in height to answer one of the questions. I started by taking off the...

    Ran another tank of fuel through the NC, and the mpg remains better than usual for me. 68 mpg with this fill-up. If it continues will have to give some credit to DID's claim that the x-ring chain has...
