    Question Would lack of ABS be a dealbreaker for you?

    Abs is what steered me to DCT which I love. In 80,000+ miles combined I have engaged it on my NC and Versys multiple times for animals or cars jumping out in front of me. People who say they can brake just as well without ABS in an emergency situation are kidding themselves.

    What did you do to/with your other motorcycle/scooter/trike today?

    New 705 rear tire put on, front sprocket replaced and oil change getting Versys 300 ready to head for Newfoundland next Monday.

    Schuberth C3 Pro Closeout

    I’ve only been able to get out on a couple rides. Satisfied with air flow. As goos or better than other helmets I’ve had. If stopped it will suffocate you if you don’t open shield as it is so tight for noise reduction and vents useless when stopped.

    Nova Scotia? Route 66 to California? Where to go?

    Watch for what Canada announces for July 21. The closing has been extended a month at a time with current ending July 21. For our trip to Newfoundland we are hoping open no later than Aug 21 at least for those of us with vaccine which we have.

    Nova Scotia? Route 66 to California? Where to go?

    Border opens July 5th only for vaccinated citizens and residents of Canada. Some speculation of more allowed July 21 as Trudeau said opening in weeks not months and updates have been happening 21 of each month. Watching close with planned trip to Newfoundland starting mid August. Could be 3 NCs...

    Question Left hand rear brake

    The scooter version called Integra and sold in Europe had one. Might be able to source the parts and bolt them on.

    8 State Trip on my NC

    We saw a lot of NCs on the road up there. Road the Ferry with a van in 1986 from Skagway to Seattle. Good trip. I considered it 2 years ago but prices had gone way up and would not have saved much time. Take the Cassier Hwy one way and you won’t backtrack much road. If you do decide to ride the...

    Question Would lack of ABS be a dealbreaker for you?

    The reason I have a DCT is that was the only way to get ABS. Tutmrnedbout I really like the DCT too. I’m not foolish enough to think I can outperform ABS in emergency situation and don’t ride the crazy slippery downhills where it maybe is a problem.

    Schuberth C3 Pro Closeout

    I have xxl in both. Schuberth has less of a hot spot on forehead but perhaps a little tighter side to side which is OK for me. After I use it a bit more I may purchase an XXXL crown piece liner for more forehead room. Need to do a longer ride to determine if hot spot shows up. Cycle Gear stores...

    Schuberth C3 Pro Closeout

    I’m with Dduuelin that use and environment are critical factors. Little concern if sitting on shelf, but daily wear in hot weather is different matter. If padding has compressed to point of being loose then helmet is less safe and will more likely have painfully hotspots than a snug fitting...

    Hot weather. What does your outfit look like this year?

    In the summer I use my one piece Ilympia mesh. Super easy on off with leg zippers that go above waist and chest zipper that goes below crotch. Great airflow. Did not come with liner or rain cover so carry rain gear just in case. Unfortunately they quit making it a few years ago.

    Schuberth C3 Pro Closeout

    June 2020 manufacturing date so year from manufacturing to my head and not old stock. Probably hard to find one less than 6 months old by the time they make it across ocean from Germany and through distribution network. I think people weren’t willing to pay an extra hundred dollars for two tone...
