AND THEN THIS HAPPENED.
This beautiful babe rolled back into my life. This is the bike I had been drooling over in the local dealer back in 2012.A friend if mine bought it and rode it occasionally. Everytime I'd see her, I'd ask her how my bike was. We used to laugh about it and I'd tell her to look after it. I called her up out of the blue last week and asked if she wanted to sell it. She called me back and 2 test rides later a deal was struck. It followed me home like a lost puppy looking for it's owner.
So off we went to get acquainted and figure each other out. The NC700 is kind if a hybrid bike, the original chassis is from the Honda Integra scooter. It has a very low centre of gravity, the gas tank is under the seat. They only sold the 6 speed manual transmission in Canada and not the dual clutch, which offered you different modes to play with and run the bike in automatic. The bike has ABS which I am really excited about as a feature.
This is where the scooter ingenuity comes in, there is onboard helmet storage! I LOVE THIS! I always thought it was the best thing on my scooter, instant storage and hauling capacity. It allows me to get away without having to kit it out which is a good thing right now, I need to pay it off before farkling commences.
My fullface Shoei with Sena unit is nicely accommodated. It also gives me a handy place for my insurance papers. I used the compartment plenty today after a quick run to the grocery store.
The Paskell Observatory opened it's doors in 1918. The building is beautiful and the grounds surrounding it are open to the public.
I wandered around for a bit enjoying our stunningly beautiful weather and sights.
So 100.9km later and we are both feeling the love. As for Scarlett, she stole my heart, but I think she is ready for another home with hopefully a new rider so they have the most gentle lovely ride that made me fall in love with her and fed my Moto passion for riding.
