    Just bought a high mileage NC750X manual

    Just bought one with 70K on it. In good condition considering. I wouldn’t usually buy a bike with so many miles on it but I reckon these will last. Let’s face it, they are impossible to thrash due to the rev limiter. I had a 2019 DCT version a while back but really didn’t like the DCT. When the arthritis in my left hand just gets too bad I may give it up completely. The farkling begins!

    47k miles at its first MOT, brilliant. A bike being used for what it was made for. I find myself looking at these bikes, trunk and high MPG would be so handy!

    The only issue is that the low rev limit makes for a comparatively small rev range and that impacts your overtaking opportunities. Still, if you aren't out to overtake everything in sight they are unbelievably good on fuel.

    Just flogged the genuine Honda luggage as the pannier shape is just daft. That means the bike now owes me the grand sum of Ł1300

    Just did my first tank refill approx 15 miles after fuel warning was displayed. I had covered 216 miles and it has averaged 86mpg! If the 14.1 litre capacity is correct there must have been a couple of litres left so I expect 250 mile range may just be possible. Admittedly, I have mainly been pootling around with odd bits of motorway at 70mph, but well impressed with that.
