The dealer gave me some cash back to fill the bike up at the nearest petrol station.

I guess they don't want bikes full off fuel in their garage.

Went out again today, bloody cold but I just had to go out!

Got a total of just over 200 miles now, weather permitting it'll be in for the (free) 600 mile service in another couple of weeks.

I'm hoping that the seat will give a bit as it feels rock solid at the moment.

Apart from that, the bike is frigging awesome. :cool:

Got back today and gave it a bloody good wash and polish, and then a liberal spraying of WD40 in the relevant areas before putting it to bed for the week. :eek:

I know they changed the seat on the 750, but if it's anything like the 700 the seat does not break in, your *** however will... around 1500 miles or so.

The Dealer is stingy with how much petrol they put in new bikes, or what? lol
Sadly yes. When I bought my NC last July, they only gave me just under a gallon. Luckily for me, I was able to go 40 miles on it before I hit up a gas station. They are doing that for new and used vehicles too. I threatened the dealership to cancel our deal on a trailblazer we were interested in unless he filled the tank. At first he wouldn't do it, and about an hour later he changed his mind :)

Congrats on your new NC. Wish they sold the 750 here in the states.

Jelly, just curious to what the "relevant areas" are? Personally I'm a big fan of WD40 but I don't spray it on the bike as part of regular routine so I am interested in your usage of it if you don't mind sharing.

As I sit here and look at this picture, with all the changes to the NC750X why didn't they make the rear brake better? -_-

I have to say that the rear brake works extremely well.

WD40, on a rag to apply to wheels, forks and swingarm.

Sprayed into the engine bay and rear shock.

Know it well Jelly! Sounds like a plan - as soon as it warms up a bit we could meet up around the A249 / M20 Junction and head for the coast?
Cheers,
Mike.

Congrats Jelly, I bought my nc700x new last July and now have 6700+ miles (10, 782 + Kilometers) and am still loving it. I rode this past Sunday, (45' F) and was having a blast. It has been raining a cold rain since and we are going to have a wintry mix tonight and snow tomorrow-arghh, did I mention I HATE winter and cold.

WOW, 10k miles in less than a year, do you commute on it Dan?
I commute about 600 miles a month, all but about two or three weeks a year, and play at every opportunity. :)

I too intend to play at every opportunity, no point longing for a brand new bike and then not using it, right? :)
