    Has anyone tried carrying additional tire pressure to see if that improves mileage? I'm thinking 50 - 55 lbs will lessen the contact patch yet still be safe, especially at the speeds I travel...

    Most tires are not rated for that PSI..

    Not when gas is $8 a gallon, as it is here in Yurp.

    That really makes you budget, even for a longish day-ride, which is no fun at all.

    Increasing pressure will definitely decrease your rolling resistance coefficient but I'd rather not gamble with my motorcycle to improve economy. You'll square-off the tires faster and may be dangerous in the process.

    Overinflate your car tires...not motorcycle....

    Goodness gracious, it seems like only yesterday we were getting posts telling us the bike was not going to be around for the 2013 model year.....

    I think it will be around for me to buy my 13 and 10 year old boys one. But that's just me wanting to complete my Arctic adventure.

    On Honda's web page now. DCT down $500 in price and base model up $500 in price so same as new CTX models a $1000 price premium for DCT / ABS

    Interesting. NC's went 500 euro's up in Europe. I think it has to do with the new 500's (to make the gap between em bigger).

    The CTX is expected for 2014 in Europe though, which suprises me. I'm curious how the CTX will do in Europe since cruisers are not a really populair segment over here.

    Has anyone purchased the maintenance manual for the NC? If so, where and what is the general cost?
