    Keep looking and noodling over bikes. I'm sure you will find a resolution that works for you.

    It's just me but I wouldn't touch an Italian bike with a 10 foot pole, especially an orphaned low...

    I hope you really enjoy your new bike. I remember how badly I wanted a Crosstourer when they came out in 2010. I still look at Cycle Trader ads now and then for a low mileage DCT but with my current...

    Yes, talking about bikes. In 2018 I sold my '05 Honda ST1300 with 180,000 miles on it. That's not really high mileage in the ST world. There are quite a few over 200k and some over that with 430,000...

    I cringe whenever I hear the reference to "Half a Fit engine" (it isn't, not even close) but your points are valid.

    I believe clutches are built to last a long time when treated well, particularly Honda wet clutches. I replaced the clutch plates in my 1972 Kawaski but that's the only one of twenty something bikes...

    There are so many variables to MPG a tank or three is of not much use when the savings we are discussing are so minute. Just my opinion.

    If you set up a Fuelly account and tracked it for a year...

    The NC cuts the fuel off when the throttle is closed. Of course there is engine braking at work then so we can’t just close the throttle and coast w/o engine braking like a manual transmission can.

    Based on what I’ve read and heard over the years I wouldn’t worry about it. The ST1300 has a name for their wobble, the Pan Weave, yet the bike racks up quite millions of miles in all sorts of...

    For the longest time no one published a dyno test on the USA market DCT 700s. If a review was of a DCT bike they would reference a dyno run of a manual, the reason being a DCT bike can’t be run on a...

    12.1 volts is “deader than a door nail”. If the battery is holding 12.1 volts then that’s about 90% discharged. Standing voltage of a fully charged healthy 12 volt battery is 12.8 to 13.1.

    HH is a range of course. Perhaps an aftermarket brand has better stopping power albeit at the expense of progressive feel or fade resistance.

    Ah, written by the same guy that trashed the NC700X in review. I guess I'd want to see the study before going any further.
