    The NC700X ride, What's it like?

    Thanks bikerguy. Hope I don't have to do all those things to get a comfortable ride out of the bike.

    The NC700X ride, What's it like?

    mgmirabelli you sound like you got what I got. I got spurs on my neck but I haven't had any pain in a long time with my neck. I quit doing anything that jared my body. In other words, no more fun. I rode a wide glide for twelve years and that probably didn't help my back any. Thanks for your unput.

    The NC700X ride, What's it like?

    Tom, thanks for your suggestion on the Russell Daylong seat. I was comfortable on my ST except for the fact I could not get my feet flat on the ground. It was a big heavy machine. Lot's of power!!

    The NC700X ride, What's it like?

    Skeleton, thanks for your input. We might need to bring this up to the Honda folks and maybe they would put a better designed seat on the thing.

    The NC700X ride, What's it like?

    Thanks Maxwellian for your input. I'm 5 9 so maybe that will be to my advantage. You are having to reach furthur to reach the bars thinks to your heigth I suspect. I've sit on one and with my feet on the floor and it seemed like you go to the tank right off.

    The NC700X ride, What's it like?

    Thanks Sargeant Chuck. I was at a Honda shop today and sat on a NCX for a bit and talked to a salesman. The bike feels really light. I like that too. The last two bikes I've had were really heavy bikes. The seat didn't feel real good as I sat there. Seems like it needs to be wider. It is a...

    The NC700X ride, What's it like?

    dduelin, I been thru Virginia a few times but not by motorcycle but in a car. I was stationed in Aberdeen Maryland for AIT training just before I went to Vietnam. I agree with you on good riding in Virginia. Tenessee might be good too. I would like to go to Oregon one of these days. Passing thru...

    The NC700X ride, What's it like?

    Thanks itlives. I like Arkansas for riding my self. I went for a week of camping on a motorcycle at the mountain at Mena, Arkansas. I was with a couple that was on a Harley. They had a little camper they pulled behind the Harley that they slept in. We rode out every day in a different...

    The NC700X ride, What's it like?

    Thanks OldJeff, I had a Corbin on my WideGlide and I loved it. It was a old used seat but it still had a lot of life in it. It had a back rest for me also as it did for a passenger. A really nice set up.

    The NC700X ride, What's it like?

    Thanks Lou. I will check out the seat reviews if I get this bike and don't like the seat. It won't take long in the summer heat to find out. That ST I had, you rode with a lean to it as you are stating and that was probably why it was fine. It only had one way to sit and it was right on. That...

    The NC700X ride, What's it like?

    10 4 on the seat. The seat don't look to bad. That Harley I had, had a seat full of buttons and was narrow. The first summer I replaced that right off. Bought a used one and it made all the difference but I never could ride that machine for no more than a hour without resting. I loved riding...

    The NC700X ride, What's it like?

    Thank you Dave, that is helpfull. I just don't want to buy and later wish I hadn't bought. I read some stuff last night on this site of trips some of the folks here have taken. None of them complained of body pains and that was a good sign. I'm a Honda fan. I started out on a Honda 50 Super...

    The NC700X ride, What's it like?

    I'm wondering what the NC700X rides like. Is it easy on the back parts? I have a problem back. My last bike was a Wide Glide Harley and it was tough on the back. I'm 63 and the back is paying me back now for misusing it!! The smoothest bike I ever road was a Honda ST1100. That was pure...
