    Default Noobie Joeburger

    Howzit guys, bought myself a 2015 nc750x in July. After being off a bike for 11yrs, it's been absolutely fantastic to be back on 2 wheels.

    Bike currently has a shad topbox, Tornado performance exhaust, puig touring screen, radiator protector, bark busters and led supplimentary lights.

    Have owned a few bikes in the past, namely:

    Italjet 50
    Yamaha DT125
    Honda CB550F
    Honda CR250
    Suzuki LTZ400 (yes I know, 4 wheels)
    Honda CBR400 NC23
    Honda CBR900RR 929
    And now
    Honda NC750X

    Looking forward to learning and hopefully contributing to TB as a whole.

    Nice bike, but then I'm biased. I'm on my second one, been to Cape Town and back a few times, no problems. Love your radiator cover.

    Keep it safe.

    Thanks lol, already been eyeing out an mt09 tracer, but would like to keep the nc for the daily commute. The frunk and top box are just way too handy, don't have to carry all my gear into the office.

    Howzit and welcome. Nice bike. Don't just eye-ball the tracer, get it! I commute with it daily and find it to be a fantasmagoriese all-rounder of a bike!

    Test rode one weekend before last, it's definitely a smile inducing machine, with torque for days. I'll most certainly be getting one, it's just a question of when, and do I keep the nc or take a bath given that I only bought it recently.

    In my opinion, you will have no need for the nc once you have a tracer. My second bike will have to give me something I can't experience with my tracer, which makes it a very difficult issue.

    Love these bikes..... about to get my second one.
    Can't compare storage with an NC.

    you should join our Marshals, I'm sure you will enjoy that....

    What is involved in being a marshal? I'd really like to get some proper training under my belt first.

    Not to put a feather in our cap, but some of the best training you can learn comes from marshaling.
    Have sent you a mail as well

    Definitely a bad influence! The peer pressure to join the marshals was almost insurmountable.

    Thanks Pirate.


    This weekend I installed engine bars and relocated the spots.

    Also got an orange lense cover since the last update.
