    It is a great bike. I think you will find it is good for short or long trips, even some dirt. I added a Madstad and a more comfortable seat to mine, which made it much more pleasant for distance...

    The NT is a great looking bike. I have a red one and I was thrilled to get it. I think it is quite a bit more bike than the NC but since I got the NC I mostly ride the NC. It feels so easy to...

    I still have the NT. It has much better wind protection than the NC and is more comfortable for long trips. I have ridden both to South Dakota from California and I prefer the NC. The NC feels...

    I have a 30 inch inseam and am 73 years old. I was concerned about the seat height when I bought the new NC this spring, my first new bike, but found I had no trouble mounting the bike when it was...

    Shad seat for distance

    I recently returned from a 3000 mile trip in 8 days. The shad seat while initially more comfortable than stock had me squirming and standing up on the pegs. It was mostly caused by the slope into...

    Yes, Rippin. It didn't work well but I think it is because I had the wrong combination of screens. I think that in order for the lip to work well you need a main screen without a recurve. The Givi...

    I had great success with a laminar lip on an NT700. But no success with a lip and the NC. My guess for a lip on a Givi screen didn't make an improvement. I got a Madstad but it is not as good as I...

    I have the 20" set at its lowest setting. I am 5'9" Tried different angles and heights. I think maybe the 18" would be better. Got the 20 because I have long torso. Thanks for your suggestion.

    Having just installed a Madstad on my 2017 ncxd i am beginning to wonder if I am expecting too much? Compared to my nt 700v with a stock shield and laminar lip the Nc700xd with Madstad is nowhere...

    You may need to attach the winglets what looks like upside down, with the longer part pointed down. I first attached mine on a 2017 with the long part up and they would ht the brake lever at full...

    I just purchased a 2017 nc700xd this month. I also purchased for the first time a modular helmet. I like it for the first hour but after that I get a headache. The safety issue makes perfect sense...

    I like the look of this Madstad the best of any I have seen. I would like to put one on my new NC. Would you mind telling me the specifications on this one? I just mounted a Givi and a laminar...

    I bought a 2017 two weeks ago. I took a trailer and drove eight hours there and back to get it. It handles great, looks great and does all I expected from a dct. I drove that far because it was the...

    The Roseville dealership is where I bought my Nc700x last week. I had been looking for one since January and none of the dealerships nearby had the 2017 model. I am in Redding, a bit of a drive to...

    Both Nc700x dct and Nt700v now. Just purchased 2017 Nc700x dct last week. First new

    I decided it was okay too splurge, because I am 73, but I am regretting what all the accessories cost to make it a touring bike. My nt has been great for trips but the Nc700x handles much more to my...

    I just purchased a 2017 NC700X dct. I haven't ridden it much yet. I also have had for two years a Nt700v. I would enjoy hearing what you think of the comparison of the two bikes.
