As a newbie, seems like most of the female NC700 lady riders have dropped off...anyone still around?

Send a private message to chestnut for information on lady riders of the NC7. She has quit a few miles on her NC7.

On the internet I usually don't make my gender obvious. I imagine a lot of other ladies do the same.

Still around - occasionally anyway, chasing a toddler doesn't leave much time for motorcycling. Not terribly far from Alexandria either, though I don't take my bike that close to DC if I can avoid it.

LOL Fair enough... I put right over 170 miles on my bike this weekend...finally out of the 'break in' period!
NICE! I teach motorcycling so, summer is really busy for me.

I've had some beautiful rides over the last few days so pretty happy about it!

I'm here now; been busy riding this summer. Put 10,000 miles on the bike in July between riding in the Butt Lite VIII 6 day competitive rally and then to NY for the BMW MOA hang around and visit rally. About to go on a women only campout this weekend on the bike. Purchased it with 2,200 miles on it late December, now have 26,000 and going strong.

At first I thought you meant where how come chicks don't dig guys on NCs. Duh. Buy a Harley dude if your looking for companionship. Never mind. :)

No offense to those who like the camaraderie but I can't recall having a question or concern that was gender specific beyond why don't clothing manufacturers take into account the differential between waist and hip measurements [emoji12]Granted, it will be nice when female riders are no longer a "novelty", but segregation won't move that forward. Just my 2 cents.

I have two daughters on the NC700X and they are both 5'7". Lowered the bikes a little for them.

Hear, hear! Am certain I should be 5'7" but something went awry along the way. 5'4 will have to do. And yes, my NC is lowered as well.

Do you mind telling me about the lowering?
Soupysperformance.com
Has adjustable dog bone links and adjustable side stand. It took me 25 minutes to put in the links. Makes the bike a little longer so be sure your chain is loose before adjusting down. Also if you are 5'4" you ma want to raise your fork tubes a little to keep the bike even/level which will keep the handling the same. We did that on one bike and not on the other. Longer bike and no lowered fork tubes means the bike doesn't turn in as quick...less nimble but not drastically. Most people wouldn't notice the difference.
If you loosen the dog bone bolts then tilt the bike up on the side stand the pressure is off of them and you can slide them right out.
Kick stand spring is a pain but do-able. Make sure to grease the kick stand pivot point.

Also the DCT I bought for my oldest daughter was lowered by a 5'5" gentleman. Not a lot of ground clearance but if you don't take it off road or just graded gravel roads you will be fine.
