I use the NC700X for a daily commuter - in Pinellas county Florida - a very traffic dense area. I really appreciate how nimble and relatively light weight the bike is. It has plenty of power to dispatch all but muscle or super cars in the 0-85 mph area, and is great fun at all sane speeds.

I have the six speed standard tranny. If you open the exhaust up on these - they sound fantastic. Changes the whole character of the bike.

The other Honda - the 81 cb900c has that dual range 10 speed tranny with the air suspension. (See the two gear levers in the pic below) Kinda like driving a powerful old school 80s era Cadillac Eldorado - plenty of power with a real plush ride.

Nice CB. Shows how far motorcycles have come along.

Excellent use of a Sportster tank.
What seat is that ?

Got that seat on ebay - it is a 17" LaRosa Shedron Leather Bobber Style seat.

I think I paid like $119 shipped for it including the springs. They cost a bit more now. You would be surprised how comfortable it is.

The "sportster tank is an after market knock off. Cost $125. The reason I changed the seat and tank was the original tank was rotted out beyond repair and the seat was missing. Both genuine items in good condition were real expensive so I took the cheap bobber route.

I totally rebuilt that CB - rebuilt the brakes and master cylinders (even new brake pistons) and added SS lines, all new rubber and rigging cables, rebuilt the carbs and the engine got a valve job and a big bore kit. It runs great.

Almost done. Only need to fit the roller door, at 5m wide it's going to be quite a lift.
Then it's on to building benches etc. Can't wait to start using it.

This is a pretty weak effort compared to most, but I am excited about having a dedicated garage for my bikes. I have a duplex and have decided to leave one side empty and have the garage available. Jackets, helmets, etc., go in the house. I just got access to it in March and plan to make some improvements this summer.

I like some of these small spaces too! Of course we all love big garages and I'm no exception, but one thing I must say is that you learn to make your space extremely efficient in a 1 car garage or less. I used to have one and moved up to an extended 2 car garage and it's a disaster now. I HAD to keep things tidy and organized otherwise I'd have to leave things out at night in the street....where they get stolen or vandalized. Now that I'm in the 2 car garage I'm lazy and haven't put up efficient shelving and have crap all over. Also, I didn't use to lose things all the time in the smaller garage....

I totally agree. I have a garage and shop. Only the garage is finished and both are cluttered.

Hey guys, I don't want to start a "which oil" discussion, but...

What are good cabinets, I've been looking and close to pulling the trigger on some gladiator gearbox type cabinets, but not sure if I'm missing something better? Not concerned about cost as much as sturdy design and usability.
