    I briefly looked at AAA but it seems like covering anything besides cars means you have to pay more.

    I called the AMA prior to my Canada/Alaska trip I’m currently on, and I was told the coverage...

    Honda seems to have a target seat height of 30-31 inches, even for small machines. Even a Metropolitan scooter has a seat a bit too tall for my wife. I find it frustrating looking for a bike hit a...

    There are a lot of NCs doing the Alaska run. Today in Whitehorse, I talked to a rider on a red 2015 DCT from Arizona. That’s 3 NCs this week.

    My AMA plan is free but I’m a Life Member so maybe that’s why. I think if you do automatic renewals, it’s free too.

    The only negative on the AMA plan is that mine only covers 35 miles of towing.

    I use AMA and GWRRA roadside assistance plans. I have used the AMA plan towing twice (for a minivan and a motor home) and the service was good. AMA roadside assistance is nice because it also covers...

    Since there is basically just one highway, you see or pass the same people multiple times at stops along the way. We met up with the NC guy farther down the road and he sat down with us at lunch....

    Grey NC700X seen heading northwest on the Alaska Highway this morning, June 14. Almost caught them to talk at Pink Mountain, but it continued on its way!

    You can get the 12 volt switched power from the 6P plug that the accessory harness would connect to. But to do that, you do need to add the Honda accessory relay and fuse into the fuse block. The...

    Red NC700X seen southbound on route 93 in Jasper, Alberta, Canada. It was late in the day on June 12, 2019. It was hard to spot because it was raining at the time.

    If not HH, what is the rating of the stock NC pads?

    I only ask because the genuine Honda pads I recently installed on my Goldwing were HH. I’ve never taken my NC pads out so I don’t know what...

    Check prices at americanmototire.com. I find that 90 percent of the time they beat everyone’s prices. And for me, I receive the tires from them generally in 36-48 hours.

    Ditto the above. Unless you fully understand the logic behind tire sizing, stay with the stock sizes. The only reason I would install a 170/60 is if the tire I absolutely wanted didn’t come in...

    So as it turns out, three old guys including me, are on their way to Alaska. None of the bikes are NC models, so I won’t continue to post about it here. Fuzzy started a thread over at Advrider.

    When I tell people I ride a motorcycle, an often asked question is, “Have you been to Sturgis?”

    So now I can say yes, because today we were at Sturgis.

    The 500X is a street bike. Other than that it now has a 19 inch front wheel, it’s no better off road than the NC. My proposed AT Lite would be a true dual sport.
