There is a good forum dedicated to NC where you can find ride reports. http://nc700-forum.com/forum/cmps_index.php

One good one here that included an NC was Cannon's Colorado adventure last summer.

I have a tendency to shift at under 4000, under 5000 if I'm in something of a hurry. Don't think I'd ever worry about hitting the rev limiter. Not sure why people think that the purpose of gears is to only use the first 2 or 3.

If you are hitting the rev limiter a lot then your missing the whole point of this LOW REVVING , very economical motorcycle !!.

I thought I was naughty, but Santa knows I'm nice.
Got this new sleigh for Christmas, guess I'm one of those guys for now.

Thanks to all for their encouraging remarks, you know who you are!
Won't be riding much till after choir engagements, but I'll check back in and let you know what I think.

You could practice yodeling while riding and then give us a report.

Well, what little I did ride it, I like it immediately.
I wouldn't call it smooth. Thing makes so many weird noises and vibrations it's comical, very endearing. The exhaust note is like music though, it just has this delicious sound and feel, getting with traffic.

It's got plenty of power for me, I love the short shifting, lots of torque everywhere.

Holds a line nice, not a real precise feel, but very planted and you can put it where you want it easily. It'll go around corners like nobody's business too.

Shakes like a Harley, goes like an airhead, it's funky- I love it.

Scooter, Where you located? I bought my red 2013 nc700x back in June and really enjoy it. I traded in my 2009 BMW G650gs for it and there is no comparison-the NC700x is a better all round bike. Killing me I haven't been able to ride it or any other bike in almost 3 weeks-my driveway and road are still sheets of ice-hopefully that will change today but they are calling for 4+ inches of rain the next 3 days-arghh

oh good I'm glad you said that, friend of mine has one of those for sale, hehehe..
In Puget Sound, Washington state, it's fairly temperate. We can ride all year sometimes, a good 10 months usually.

I'm surprised how good this bike handles. Giving the 750 a taller first gear doesn't make any sense to me. The 700 seems to go about 10 mph if you just let out the clutch.

Well now you can have slow race idle drags and whip the 750's ass.
