    Sort of a blast from the past. Harley imported the Sprint 350 in the 70s but from Italy.

    I'm discovering I have many more options with the 17" front than I had with the 19" on my Vstrom. I don't have experience with any tires other than what came on my NC700X but 3 tires are on my radar...

    I got these for a quick visual check. I used another brand for years but they started failing so I switched to these, so far so good. They don't replace a tire gauge, just lets me know if I lost a...

    I learned the wires reach if the horn is pointed to the right but I wanted it pointed down & the wires were a little short. You'll see a white zip tie on the lower right of the frame where the wires...

    Louder Horn & cut down windscreen

    I got a Fiamm 72112 low tone snail horn for my Suzuki VStrom but never installed it & decided to put it on my Honda. Much louder. Sounds like a car horn. Actually it is. Didn't need a relay because I...

    The tires on my new 2014 are dated Nov 2013 so I'll replace them next Spring. Until then I won't push corners hard or ride in rain. They look ok, not dry rotted, hard or slippery feeling. I've read...

    Looks like that would be more comfortable than stock, maybe a little wider. I just got mine, haven't even taken it out of the box but probably won't install it until after I get hip surgery (in 2...

    I got caught in a thunderstorm years ago & haven't ridden in rain since. Lightening bolts dropping all around me & I rode like an idiot trying to get home. Front tire hydroplaned & swung left at...

    I've watched videos of riders lane-splitting at high speed in stopped traffic. All it takes is one person to open their door & send the rider to the E.R. & total the bike. I wouldn't lane-split if it...

    Thanks everyone. There's an Ace Hardware store in my area, will go today.
  11. Those rubber things the wind screen screws go into

    I don't know what they're called. I ordered 4 from BikeBandit but they're "in progress" & haven't shipped. Anyone seen these in a store some place? I decided to put my wind screen back on but I cut...

    I plan on ordering lifts for my riding boots, probably 1". Sort of like heal cushions but thicker. Some over 2". I can almost flat foot now but maybe not after installing my SeatConcepts next...

    How do you like the Parabellum windscreen? I have a tall one for my VStrom for winters & like it. I just see over the top, no turbulence or noise. May get one for the NC700X this winter, haven't...

    NC is much easier to pick up. My '07 Strom was only 22 pounds heavier but the weight is up high. Much lower center of gravity on the NC. I should clarify; I haven't dropped my new NC yet. I held the...

    I removed my stock wind screen today to reduce noise & it helped a lot. Clean air hit my upper chest & it was 90 degrees so I didn't mind. Before I was getting turbulence at the bottom of my helmet &...

    Thanks for posting. I remember Greywolf on the Vstrom forum since I got my Vstrom 650 in 2007. Very helpful guy & I learned a lot from reading his posts. I hadn't logged in for awhile but last time I...

    Great pics. I'm looking into those Moto-Skiveez now. I've been using LD Comfort shorts for years when I do longer rides. Basically they're like compression shorts that offer support when sitting....

    Cool, you won't have to wait 14-21 business days for it to ship from SeatConcepts. I ordered mine 6 days ago & probably won't see it for another 2-3 weeks. People loved the Russel Day Long saddle on...

    That looks like fun. My wife won't ride on back of my bike, maybe I should consider a sidecar. I have 3 friends from Vietnam, I worked with them 15 years before I retired. They return every 2 or 3...

    I've used a tall Parabellum for winter on my old Vstrom. It's very curved so a lot of air goes around the sides instead of up & over but I found it was calm & quiet behind it. I would have left it on...

    Curious if anyone has found the air filter not properly sealed/installed from the factory. If so I'll check mine. If not I'd much rather wait until it's due. Got 76 miles on my new 2014 NC700X.

    I think I'll try that. For now I've got a duct tape hugger. :D I first tried duct tape 10-11 years ago on my Vstrom & it's still on. Rear shock is still clean. Heavy duty 3" wide, folded once. I hope...

    Welcome. I went to Amsterdam in 1979 & 1988 when I was stationed in Europe. Beautiful city, I toured it by boat. I hadn't seen a white NC700X before, that looks good.
