    In 5248 miles, I've had ZERO problems with the NC. It is very capable and reliable. I've never done any two up riding on this bike but I have toured, riding 600+ miles in one day. To me, the stock...

    I took the written test to get my leaners permit at 15 in the state of Florida in 1986. I moved to Texas in 1988 and had to surrender my permit. They asked what it was and I said it was a motorcycle...

    On cold rides, I add therma-care heat wraps under clothing and in boots and gloves. Whats great is they have shaped and formed wraps for specific areas, knees, upper back, hand and ankle. Keep in...

    I'm with everyone on this, so happy to see a bike that's not a HD or Gixxer clone (even though I have owned both types recently). The CBR has also piqued my curiosity, the HP numbers are just about...

    I'm really not a fan of having a box sticking out behind the bike and I rather like the look of having the box close behind me on the back seat. I'm with others though, I'd be worried about it flying...

    It may not be a crasher, the owner or dealer may be able to get more for it by parting it out. Between the motor, frame, forks, wheels and swingarm, you could get the $5200 the bike would sell for...

    I hope you moved him to the side of the rode. I always stop and help them across. They have enough problems to deal with as it is without some "critter-hitter" making turtle pancakes.

    I owned a Yamaha Raider and a Suzuki DRZ400SM prior to the NCX. If I had to describe the NC, I would say if my Raider and DRZ got it on, the NC would be their love child.

    I've seen 112 mph and that's it, there is no more. That said, I haven't been able to achieve that consistently. On other runs I have seen 107mph, 109mph (x2), 110mph. Each time its been on the same...

    Believe it or not, noise really contributres to fatigue on long trips. I've installed chin curtains on all of my helmets and they really help to cut down on wind noise.

    Not 30 seconds but he did pull out a lead early and just managed it until the end. It was a good race.
  14. NCX riders meet up and ride to Formula 1 at CoTA near Austin on November 16 or 17

    Any NC riders in Houston TX headed to Formula 1 at CoTA near Austin on November 16 or 17 that would like to meet and ride up together? I plan to attend both days (can't make it Friday.. work...) For...

    Here are the criteria I used to choose this bike;
    1. Don't mind if it sits outside
    2. Fuel economy
    3. Utility
    4. Power delivery
    5. Deal on purchase / budget
    6. Touring
    7. Back road blasting

    Headwinds were mentioned in the write up but not included in the calculations, for simplicity's sake. The headwind/tailwind in tests 1-4 was described by the NWS as 5-7mph, difficult to calculate...

    If I add the actual tenths from my trip meter to this calculation, I also get 53mpg so this tells me that my mileage isn't a fluke. Thank you.
  19. I spot checked the numbers with a calculator but...

    I spot checked the numbers with a calculator but not for each entry. What I have noticed with the NC is that the Odometer displays only whole numbers. So, 3118 miles instead of 3118.5 miles. That...

    Iíve had issue with fuel economy on the NCX since I purchased it just a few weeks ago from an individual in the DFW area. I bought this bike primarily for the fuel economy and its been a little...

    I had a set on my DRZ400SM and got 6000 miles on the rear. The front was still going strong. Granted, the DRZ was 170lbs lighter but I spun the rear tire a lot on the DRZ, so I would expect to get in...

    I had a set of Distanzia's on my DRZ400SM and they gripped very well on wet/dry pavement as well as the beach, dry grass covered pastures and dirt roads. The DRZ was considerably lighter but I got...

    Not something I have ever done before and certainly wouldn't do it in Houston city limits, but I tried it yesterday in a bunch of little towns. Like you, I constantly check my 6. You never know when...

    Sorry. It was meant as sarcasm, not as an insult. I see you have an ST1300, had an '04 myself that I put 48k miles on. What year? Color? I miss my ol' ST.
