    I agree.

    And in breaking news, the NC750X not only came first in the weekend's RFS Bike Econorun... It was an overall first with the first ever fuel consumption of under 3l/100km... Will check when the press release comes, but something stupid like 2,7l/100km.

    I can believe that. One oke in your NC whatapp group claims a 40km/l consumption, but thats riding like a granny, slipstreaming as far as possible, daily chainlubes, etc.

    I can understand (and agree) that the NC may not be the bike for Dave31, especially if he woundn't do alot of commuting soon. A bigger bike may be more suited to his needs.
    Only wanted to highlight that these bikes should not be underestimated (or overestimated). Then you will love every second in the saddle.

    I had a quick look on the Econorun website, and the results aren’t posted yet.

    Do you know how long it usually takes to post the results? And do they usually give a ‘Ride Report’.

    Do you know how the classes are categorized?

    Like I said Dave

    this bike will be most suitable for you when you are in retirement.

    Ooh! lots of modifications you can do to it to keep you busy - remove AIS, replace exhaust with S1 exhaust to get better flow, advance timing by 5 degrees, add a fuel controller etc. etc.

    Put new rubber on last week.. Dunlops of course and replaced a leaky fork seal and blown number plate globe for roadworthy.

    Going to Hillcrest in Natal this weekend for my best mates wedding and bringing back the Old Dog Racing Fazer. The Akra's from that bike are going onto mine as as are the GIVI luggage racks. Standard pipe from mine is going onto the old Dog.
