I currently have a 2012 NC700X and a 2011 HD Road King. I bought the Honda to take camping, hiking and fishing. The bike is very easy to ride. This will help on unpaved conditions and uneven large loads (camping equipment). The bike feels very light and manuverable at low speeds. Again this is beneficial on twisty and unpaved roads. The bike's fit and finish is top and I expect relability. My mileage has been right at 68-70 mpg. With a back-up canister of fuel, I should be set for any fuel emergency. The bike is peppy but not road fast. This is what I expect and budgeted. The bike needs a bigger windshield (many currently on the market) and a more comfortable seat (I understand more after markets are responding). This bike does not do everything but is a good fit for me for camping, hiking and fishing.
