    I just ordered the Parabellum windscreen too. I was very happy with the one I got for my Vstrom years ago. Will be ordering nut plates very soon too.

    If that C4 is the same as a C4 Pro without the bluetooth that's a great price. I'm on my 2nd Schuberth C4 Pro & it's the quietest helmet I've ever worn. Comfortable & decent ventilation too.

    Wow, I think I'd better check my air filter. I got a new 2014 NC700X in May, no telling how many places it's been stored. Will do it Monday, putting up a ceiling fan tomorrow.

    I've had some luck using a pipe wrench on stripped bolt heads. Sometimes it grabs & turns, other times it just slips.

    Looks like fun. I'd love to do a track day but nearest track is 250 miles. Those Dunlop Q3+ are probably my next set of tires.

    Seems they're too fast for sidewalks but to slow for the road. There have been accidents competing with cars & pedestrians.

    I called & got a different answer this time. This time they said $180 & they don't check the valves. I guess it depends on who I speak to. I'll hold them to that when I bring it in Tuesday.

    If I rode the MT-09 & NC700X to work today I'd get there in the same time. 20 years ago I would get there in half the time on the MT-09. Comes down to riding style.
