I went for a test ride today. Tried a Transalp as well. Much preferred the NCX. Put a deposit on a new red one and will be collecting 2 weeks today Having the dealer install Givi luggage, heated grips and Engine bars as part of the deal. Can't wait to collect it.

This is the luggage I've gone for.



And the engine bars

This is the demo bike I took out. Didn't care for the Hippo hands much, the bike is great though. I can see me doing a lot of miles on this one.



It's going to need a hugger and I would like a chain oiler but you can't fit a vacuum scottoiler and the electronic one is 200+.

Actually, there is at least one guy over here (I think he is a professional) who drilled into some part of the engine intake system to get some vacuum for the chain oiler, and this works. However, I do not at all recommend to do it like this :)
I am happily lubing the chain every week or so. Not much about it.

Skip the chain oiler.......not needed with an o-ring chain.

I don't want to be drilling holes in the inlet manifold either I guess I'll just chuck a can of chain lube in the 'not a tank' and call it good.

Bike cover

Just wondering if any of you guys have bought a cover for the bike? I live in Louisiana and it is constantly raining in this place. Normally I would just keep her in the garage but on post they don't build many because of the mold issues. I am in the process of installing the Givi setup that several of you have and just wanted to see if you guys found a cover that fits well. I have started to notice rust forming on the ignition switch so its time to find a solution. Thanks in advance. Darrell

You may want to visit my blog to find my "design studies" to get an idea of how it might come out.
Final results and big pictures probably next week.

LOL

I am actually quite happy with those 52HP, as I am with the stock bike. But having a close look at your strict rulebook this mod should add considerable performance!

Yeah, that's what I'm thinking.
