I am on a trip, 420 miles yesterday and 350 today (on my Wing.)
The new helmet is comfortable and flows air about the same.
One big positive: The optical quality of the shield is far superior to the first Neotec.
One big negative: It uses a ratchet system on the strap. If I cinch it...
I bought a new Goldwing Friday. I plan to keep the NC700, as it is perfect for exploring back roads and trips to the store.
After riding the Goldwing I still think the NC is an amazing bike for the price.
Reliable, plenty of reasonable power, and I think it is a good looking bike.
I have only been riding as an adult for three years. (Typical moderate dirt bike use as youth.)
But I already have several jackets.
1. Olympia mesh. Plain but functional, lots of good design touches.
2. Hitair airbag mesh, silver. Works ok, no airbag system is ever going to be as...
The 4 has been discontinued in our size, 160/60, 17. I like the pilot, which is so much stickier than the stock ones and better in the rain.
I decided to order a pilot road 5. It is ten dollars more and seems to have wider and shorter grooves, with better rain management in the center and...
I was on a four lane divided highway today. Not much traffic.
A beat up car was passing me. I looked over and could see the driver was distracted, though I am not sure what the distraction was.
At any rate he started to move over into my lane while next to me, no signal.
I do not know...
New year, new thread.
Can Roczen recover?
I feel like this might be Musquin’s year, but he is not riding great tonight.
I like the rules changes, especially dumping the semifinals and having three of the “special” races.
I am not very smart about electricity.
As I understand it, the NC has about 25 amps of excess power. I am not sure if this is at a certain rpm.
Currently I have Denali D 2 lights, 1.5 amps per pair, and OEM heated grips, 3 amps.
Hot wired Gear is lower powered than some of the Gerbing...
My NC actually is plenty of bike for me, but the purpose of riding is pleasure, so rationality is not that important.
Bikes I like:
Indian Springfield. So comfortable and powerful! Handles very well for such a heavy bike.
HD Heritage Classic. Upgraded in every way. Looks great...
It was the "sport" model, the SR, but the adv version is just different tires and shocks.
Awesome torque! It is hard to put in words how fast this thing accelerates.
It also feels a little weird to be on something going so fast that is so quiet. You can really hear everything around...
FezUSA asked some questions about video.
Here are my basics. I am a beginner.
My YouTube channel is under Oklahoma Hank.
I use bensound music, most of which is free if you give credit.
I put a credit in the YouTube description and another in the video itself.
SW makes two footpegs for the NC. One is thirty dollars more, though both are expensive.
I cannot tell much difference. It seems like the cheaper one allows you to take the rubber off, but they both seem splined and adjustable. That the cheaper one has more options seems backwards...
