    SOLD : 2013 - Givi Luggage, Center Stand, Heated Grips, Seat Concepts, Brand New Tires - Atlanta

    I'm sad to see this bike go, but I want to get back on a dual sport adventure bike. I bought this NC700 in 2015 and it had 235 miles on it. It has given me zero issues and been an absolutely fantastic machine! Most of my riding is 200-400 mile day mountain runs and 3-4 day camping trips. I kept...

    Placing a +- 3 gallon aux tank in helmet compartment on a NC750X how to if possible.

    No worries, I had stated specifics in a previous post and was trying to avoid

    Placing a +- 3 gallon aux tank in helmet compartment on a NC750X how to if possible.

    You missed my point. I'm not arguing the desire to hold more fuel, I'm arguing this application. There is a safe way to do it and there is this way.

    I'd give him a break if his actions would not or could not have implications on other people. But he is risking the lives of others. Sorry, no breaks for him. This is 100% reckless.

    Measurements for FZ1111 rack - big favor to ask anyone that has one

    It depends. Over the last couple of months (been rather slow winter for me) I would have loved more projects like this. Simple enough a tard like myself could make something fairly decent. The other reason to do it myself is to make it exactly how I want. If I were to have a plate like this...

    Measurements for FZ1111 rack - big favor to ask anyone that has one

    Here are the measurements Let me know if you have any questions. You'll notice I took some measurements to the side cases for max width of plate dimensions and to the seat as well.

    Measurements for FZ1111 rack - big favor to ask anyone that has one

    Ahhhhh ok. I'd be happy to still do it, but now that I understand what you want.... I can't do it tonight. I'll attempt it tomorrow because I think I will have to remove the plate to get most accurate measurements.

    Probably would have gotten this luggage system If I were buying today

    I have heard great things about Mosko but damn they are expensive.

    Measurements for FZ1111 rack - big favor to ask anyone that has one

    I can take the measurements for you after work today, but to better understand the measurements, what are you trying to accomplish? What are you building? EDIT: I just saw your other post, if I'm understanding it correctly, I don't see why you need measurements. Just mount up the FZ1111 and...

    Probably would have gotten this luggage system If I were buying today

    I considered doing exactly that but thought it wouldn't look right. However, that set up looks good, but largely because it's hidden by the back rest. Did you make that yourself? I also considered the pillion plate that fella makes, but because of how far back I sit my tail bone would be up...

    Probably would have gotten this luggage system If I were buying today

    I had Wolfman Dry bag panniers on my KLR. I LOVED them! I wanted to use them on the NC, but the fact that you have to disconnect and undo part of the strap that goes over the pillion to re-fuel, made it a 100% deal breaker for me. As far as durability, I went down multiple times while fully...

    OFF ROAD NC's (Pics and Mods)

    As someone who tries to be as self-sustaining as I can be, I can relate. However, my buddy (whom, I'm almost always riding with) and I work together so we are not both carrying the same crap. No need for both of us to bring chain lube or a tire repair kit or ...... whatever. I like his spoons...

    engineering question: tires

    If you're just doing a short stint on some gravel/hard packed dirt, dropping tire pressure 5-7lbs will get you better traction. However, be careful as you increase the risk of damaging the wheel.

    NC on the TAT?

    Just for clarity, I'm not saying "it" can't. I'm saying I wouldn't. I'm saying there are better choices for a safer, more enjoyable and ride across some the most challenging "roads" in the country. I'm in the camp of, just because it can, doesn't mean you should. Running the TAT is in my...

    NC on the TAT?

    Ground clearance is actually the same for both bikes and... both suck.

    findmespot.com vs spotwalla.com

    I've used Spot for multiple day rides. I use my GPS tracks from my Garmin for keeping records of my routes. I only use Spot for, "I need help right now, here is where I am and how I got here." and to be able to send "OK" messages through out the day so when Im out of cell coverage, loved ones...
