    The DCT would be a good starter bike...virtually impossible to stall , very manageable on stopping/starting on uphill situations that can be dicey on larger bikes. But it is far from a toy and once you get the hang of it you can surprise a lot of people in the twisties. Only weak point is what you would suspect at the price point...it could use a better suspension. The storage ("frunk") is very functional.

    There are far worse choices for a starter bike. Even the manual version is easy to learn clutching with most of the engine's available torque accessible right off idle. If you are smooth on the clutch you don't even need throttle to get going in first gear.

    Interesting to read this thread and it seems so many original posters sold their NCS. ....

    Still have mine since 2013.... 23,000 miles and counting. mileage has gone down however because ride time is getting shared with my AT. Still love my NCX.

    Many original posters on many threads sold whatever motorcycles to buy other motorcycles. Seems like no matter what we buy, we see something else we think might do the right tricks for us... However it's going to take something that gets great fuel economy like the NC or at least very close to it, and weighs less and has deeper better suspension to lure me away.

    Interesting wind deflectors on your NC. Any closer/different angle pics? Looks like nice riding weather there. :D

    Coated them with Line-X after that picture...but here are a few shots of them last night...they can be rotated to change the angle, and Mount directly to my Givi Guards IMG_0031.jpg IMG_0032.jpg IMG_0033.jpg

    Great idea! :-) Did you fab up the plates or are they from something else?

    I'm a Draftsman at a Metal Fab shop, so I made them up myself, .125" Aluminum, slit a rubber hose to put on the U-bolts to let them rotate without marring up the guards

    yep, that's what i'm using now, though if i was doing more aggressive stuff i'd be using TKC80 or the like on front and Mitas E-07 on the rear : }
