    8 State Trip on my NC

    Thanks for the tips! We've already had to bend them back twice due to my continual slow dumps in the dirt and gravel. I assume they are designed to bend back so they don't grab the pavement during a major laydown.

    8 State Trip on my NC

    I did not lower the front, which is why my headlights point more up then at the road for night riding. lol The bike handles really well with just the back lowered, so I didn't see a reason to adjust the front.

    8 State Trip on my NC

    I've broken both my wrists, so I tend to baby them. I ride with a cramp buster all the time. The throttle lock was used when I covered miles and miles of flat or to give my wrist a break and drop it down.

    8 State Trip on my NC

    Here are the crash guards. My man was skeptical of them and didn't like the U-bolt they attached with. He came around, I have dropped the NC more then any other motorcycle, all at less then 10 mph, but still far too many times usually while off road. Between the bags and the crash guard the NC...

    8 State Trip on my NC

    Hi, everyone! I've been lurking all summer here and wanted to share about my 2015 NC700X. I just completed a 3,395 mile, nine day, eight state, trip from Minnesota to Texas. Rode the Twisted Sisters and hit the Devil’s backbone, Hell’s road, and the Arkansas Pig Trail on the way home. I...
