    I wonder how many of us have NOT bought a certain bike in the past because it was only available with a heavy clutch?

    I remember taking a demo ride on an Indian Scout and several Triumphs (the...

    Be sure to save the Grip puppies until you've taken a trip on the bike. At about 100 miles you'll know if you need them or not.

    I haven't really felt the need to add them, as my NC700 doesn't have...

    I have had the inside part of the lid replaced and it's started to do that.

    Will try the sealant trick when I have the time.

    I've looked at so many "cold weather" gloves online, but most of them seem more for dealing with rain instead of cold.

    At high speeds (70+) on the freeway none seem to be able to hold up.

    I have made it a habit to always put my DCT into N before turning the key to OFF. I never use the engine kill switch with this bike, unlike all my previous manual-shift bikes. Just doesn't seem...

    I don't understand. Are these people buying your bike for you?

    Are you part of a gang that requires a manual-shift bike?

    What really matters is the weight limits on both. Unless you are carrying cotton candy in all those cases.

    The limits on the frunk and top case are ridiculously low.

    Is that a 2018 750?
    It looks like the upper fairing is dark, not the silver we get in the USA (which I prefer).

    For the 2019 all we get is the blue 750 with the dark fairing :mad:

    There is a difference between the keys of American Gen 1 NC700's and Gen 2's. The Gen 2's (2016+) use a "laser cut" key.

    With a soft tail bag you should always take it with you when you leave the bike in questionable places. My old Nelson Rigg tail bag has...

    I had to put my windscreens back on!

    I was getting too much wind noise from as low as 31 mph with a headwind. Enough to need earplugs.

    Does the first gen NC700 show your mpg?
    I would use that as a guide to let you know when not to push it, but I'm not sure those early bikes had that.

    I do wonder why the need to "push it". Are...
