Enjoy your bike. The handling characteristics allow for some unusual performance off road and in the wet. It is good to keep the fuel under the seat and not in front of you. Plenty of storage!!

Did you mean to make this comment to someone else? I don't ride off road and I don't carry extra fuel. :)

When I bought it, I did not think it was an adventure bike. It was bought as an A to B bike. But I ride a lot under all conditions. Texas has a lot of dirt roads. Suddenly, A to B meant dirt and through water. I was kinda shocked how it worked. I owned and rode a lot of bikes.
Hi Willie, I've never ridden a Wing, but it seems like the ultimate big engine bike with a large fan club. I love my NC for it's maneuverable size, low maintenance and fun factor on winding roads. I find Highway riding is not so enjoyable. Curious to know what factors go into deciding which one of your bikes gets chosen on any given day :) Thanks, Rich

Hey Rich, Actually, I ride both bikes about equally, lately tho, the 700 seems to be my go too bike. I am 73 years old and the Wing is getting to be a handful whenever riding two up. I am considering a Can Am Spyder to replace the Wing. I still do a lot of touring, having ridden in all the lower 48 states with my Wing, currently the Wing has 83,000 trouble free miles on it. Have safe riding my friend.
