    2022: What did you do to/with your NC700/NC750 today?

    Went for a 340Km round trip to see a good friend who is currently unwell. During the course of the trip on the outward leg my X-Adv achieved one of its highest fuel consumption figures @ 63 miles per imperial gallon. Contributing factors were a very strong headwind while cruising at 125kph for...

    New Leak Shows KTM 490 Model Range in the Pipeline

    Potential to be a good little bike. However if KTM could figure out how to keep their bikes out of the workshop it would be even better.

    Fork Oil leak

    Thats exactly what I did also. I fabricated a tool from a section of an old Xray negative. It immediately sorted the leak and I think that was over 20,000 kms ago. I will shortly get the forks serviced with new seals and bushings as theyu are well overdue by now at 42,000 kms. One thing I...

    Fenda Extenda…how to attach?

    Took the fender off to clean it properly underneath and then used the tape and clips provided. No issues.

    Stopping at a light? You're probably doing it wrong.

    Didn't watch the video but my own practice is to put the bike in neutral if I am likely to be longer than a minute or so at the stop. Less than that and I stay in gear.

    2022 Aprilia Tuareg 660 Ride Review

    I had a short ride on one recently and I was very impressed with it. A friend who already has a T7 was equally impressed with it. Not sure if He will trade yet.

    2022: What did you do to/with your NC700/NC750 today?

    My statement is fact 670. I don't make things up. I came up behind cyclists on tight mountainous backroads on occasions on my 2012 NC700X and they didn't hear me. When I sounded the horn they got a fright because of it. That annoyed them hence the counter productivity.

    2022: What did you do to/with your NC700/NC750 today?

    My 2017 X-Adv has the later (OEM) silencer and I think it is just right. I recall that on my former 2012 I found it too quiet. There were times when I came up on cylists on the road and they had no idea I was there. On occasion I had to sound the horn to make them aware of my presence. That can...

    2022: What did you do to/with your NC700/NC750 today?

    On a couple of my bikes the pillion footrests are low enough for me to rest my feet on them, thereby changing pelvis position when my back needs a rest from the same position. I often do it on long stretches of open road where I won't need to change gear.
