    it's a great tire on wet or dry pavement, gravel, hardpack and wet pardpack, and surprisingly enough grass as long as it's not TOO wet.

    ...here the TKC80 is available in the right sizes

    well, most use 150/70. but for the rear i'd use Mitas E-07 in that size unless I was heading into mud for may many kilometers. the Mitas does a lot of things pretty well and lasts a lot longer. but even if lots of mud, i'd be inclined to try Mitas E-10 on the back.

    in some countries they can use ONLY original size tires... or it becomes illegal ;)

    No they are shinko 705s 150 in the rear and stock size in the front. I actually like the 150 because it's a slightly taller tire so it gives me a little more ground clearance. They handle great.

    So far. 1" fork extensions, hepco Becker crash bars and skid plate, hand warmers, 12v accessory bar mount, 15tooth front sprocket, trash can rear mud guard, front fender lift, Shinko 705's, wps hand guards, sylvania headlight. More to come I'm sure.

    Danmoto exhaust carbon GP in route for my b-day!! 15 tooth front sprocket was great but I will see how it is in the spring off road. I might even go to a 14 tooth or larger rear sprocket.

    Received the danmoto exhaust with the optional baffle. It sounds fantastic! I'm very happy with the quality and sound. Best $132 ever spent on an exhaust.

    Nice now get some jack up links for the rear. I did this to mine and without fork extensions and the 150 rear tire I had a little over 8 inches of ground clearance. The bike was too high in the rear without fork extensions and affected handling so I took them off until I order some extensions'. Good cheap way to get some ground clearance for sure. after i put my links on I was on my tip toes when mounted and I have a 32 inch inseam without shoes. Stock height with the 150 tire I am almost flat foot.

    a place called lust links sells them check ebay. http://www.lustracing.com/ best option is to check ebay and type in the search nc700x jack up links or riser links. They have all different sizes.

    This might not be the right place for this but I have a question.
    I've had an 09 storm. Loved the bike hated the wind buffeting. The second gen seems to still have that problem.
    Does the nc700x have that problem at highway speeds??? I live where the highway speed is 70 mph

    The stock windshield didn't buffet but it didn't give much wind protection either. I'm 5' 6" and the Madstad is perfect.

    stock shield might as well be non existant. Puig screen buffets hard, I imagine the honda touring screen is similar. I have the ermax +15 and love it, others like the madstad but I think that one just looks too wide on the bike.
