More important, I think, is how has the bike been for you? Reliable? Comfortable, Any issues? Things you'd change? Inquiring minds want to know!

I'll have to think about those questions. I'm probably not the right person to be asking i'm only 24 I don't have a long history of alot of bikes. But the bike's been great it's been reliable so far. Although it has randomly stalled out 7 times in the last 6 weeks. The bikes comfortable for me I still haven't done the 1000 in 24 hours but i've done plenty of 700 mile days in 24 hours. I do wish the bike had a larger stator output 452 watts is marginal when running heated socks, pant liners, jacket, gloves, and heated grips the rpm's need to stay above 3000 rpm's and you can't use the high beam head light. I don't think there's much else I would change.

You can find more info on the bike over on www.nt-owners.org/ Most of the members there are well experienced riders that downsized from goldwings, st1300s, kawasaki concours's, and etc.

You've got that baby broke in nicely. 24 huh? That explains a lot. There are two groups of guys who get to ride as much as you. Young single guys without financial and familial commitments and the old retired guys. Unfortunately, I don't fall into either of those categories. :loll Keep posting so those of us in the middle can live vicariously through your adventures.

The first time I did an Iron Butt I told myself "That was dumb, no more of that." The second time confirmed my first impression.

Western NC Tag-O-Rama!

I planned to grab this tag on my Robin since it's just a mile or two from the house..

But Lisa's new armored hoodie came in the mail.. So she wanted to test ride it out.

She also started a new job this week at a new BBQ joint opening just a little ways away.. She wanted me to see it, so we went and took a tour.. They are in there preparing to smoke for tomorrow's grand opening.

Here's your tag.. Who knows if it even comes up on google yet.. Hopefully it doesn't take you 64 years to find it

Sorry I was having too much fun in the Tellico area today. So I didn't adventure over to the tag today maybe tomorrow. I was over here today (Joe page 7 & 10 might be worth scrolling through Alaska pictures)
