    Sorry 42 but I stand by my comments with regard to your friends. If they have not ridden a DCT bike they they are not qualified to advise on its qualities be they negative or positive.

    I believe the 950KTM wasn't ready for a trip like that at the time. There were still issues being ironed out and they could well have gotten poor publicity also. Rock and hard place.

    With regard...

    DCT is a brilliant system. I have four motorcycles. Three of them have a standard shift and one, my X-Adv which has the same motor and drive train as the NCX, has DCT. I have been riding continuously...

    On my former NC700X 2012 I found that the forks had too much high speed compression damping. As such over sharp bumps the action of the forks was too harsh. I decided to go down the Andreani route...

    The Rotax motor in this model is slightly different to the BM version in that it has a 5 valve head. Looking at the ad I think it would be a nice purchase for $2000 especially with the

    I have ridden the 2019 CB500X and my conclusion is that I definitely see one in my future. However I would have to part with my NC derivative to get one and I am not ready to do that.

    I found...

    The ST is a good bike. Best of luck with it. The one thing the NC is missing is Cruise Control. Having had it on my former GL1800 and my former 1200 Explorer I certainly miss it on long motorway...

    I am not a sport bike fan but that Triumph is lovely. The sound of the motor in the actual Moto 2 bikes is just gorgeous. I suspect these will be hot sellers.

    I tried the 750 while owning the 48bhp 700 and there was little between them if at all. My only issues were replacement rear wheel bearings at low mileage and paint lifting on one of the wheels...

    A vise grip can sometimes work if applied tightly enough ?

    Ahem......some on here might consider the VFR a downgrade ;)

    Best of luck with the new bike. As dduelin suggests it sheds its weight when on the move.

    Yep, while I was a late starter at age 20 that movie certainly helped me along :)

    Rode a VFR once for a day. Nice bike with a powerful motor and very heavy. At this stage of my motorcycling career it would simply be too heavy for me. In any case I was never much attracted to it....

    I had the Moose experience once also when crossing over from Norway to Sweden up north. As You say it is a very big animal and gave me quite a start as it just burst out of the bushes in front of me...

    I have ridden the Tracer 900 with the three cylinder motor. By comparison with the NC motor the 900 is frantic to say the least. It is a very sporty motor and nothing about it is relaxed. The one I...

    I think its a fine bike with good looks. The Wife saw it today and her opinion is that it looks like a lot of spare parts cobbled together......:D

    Some folks have no taste at all. :D

    I will take it up another notch. I once dropped the loose blade of a feeler guage down the Cam chain tunnel of a Z1300 Kawasaki. Fortunately it dropped on to the crankshaft. Thereafter followed the...

    Normal fuel consumption on my 2016 is mid to low 70's miles per imperial gallon. While it is not abused, the little motor is kept busy on most of my offroad and backroad rides. Good to see that it is...

    It was the latch of the frunk lid moving moving with rough surfaces on roads. When I suspected the latch I simply pressed down on the frunk over a rough patch of road and the rattle stopped. After...

    Yes I had such a rattle on my former NC700X. It bothered me until I figured out what it was. Once that was ascertained I forgot about it :cool:

    Similarity there also. I have a CRF250L albeit not bored out, but like You say it also is amazing fun offroad and on, as long as the road is twisty.
