My advice is to look elsewhere. I had a 2005 Sportster 883. I got rid of it fast. Too much noise, vibrations, heavy, underpowered, etc. If you insist on HD, get a 1200 Sportster.

Honda NC700X DCT

Tall windshield option

I did some highway riding yesterday doing 75 mph. Wind is too much at that speed. What tall windshield option do we have for NC700X?

R1200R to NC700X

Well, for me, if I really like the ride on NCX, I'm not sure I can think of a good reason to keep my R1200R. I think they're pretty much in the same category as far as their utility goes.
