Just Got a New Red NC700XE

Got it yesterday, new 2014 with zero miles at a good price from the Honda dealer. 1 minute into the test ride I decided to buy it. Previous bike is a 2007 Suzuki Vstrom 650 which I like but it's WAY too top heavy & I can no longer pick it up if I drop it. It made sense at 50, not at 62. I'm not young, strong & patient. The NC is so much easier to roll around, feels more like a 250 because the weight's down low. NC is also much more nimble & has better low-end torque. Fun bike! I'd be on it now but it's raining. Anyway I ordered some Grip Puppies & neoprene fork gators. Used both on the Suzuki for years. I'll be catching up on owner's experience & knowledge of this bike in the days ahead & hoping for the rain to stop. About me; riding motorcycles since 1973 & this is bike #8 .
