OK guys and gals,
I'm heading to the Int. Bike Show this weekend in Minneapolis and will be sitting on some bikes I may potentially own in the coming year. I'm contemplating the new NC700X but always keep coming back to the V7 Stone. I need to see how it fits my body as the NC700X is spot on. Also like the Honda's storage and mileage available. But the Stone seems like a bike I wouldn't get tired of owning.
What kind of mpg are you getting and how does it handle with the Hepco bags? I saw a post on a different site about some tail waggle due to the bags relationship to the rear axle. I would like to do some light touring and some possible long tours with the bike. Commutes to work and maybe a dirt road here and there on the weekends. Bags, rear rack and a windscreen will be a required accessory.
I would love to love the Stone so any feedback would be awesome.
