    [...Cleaning the chain is a little messy but doesn't really take that long...These new chains, with proper care, get double to triple the miles that i'm used to...]

    I still have my NT but haven't ridden it much this year. My other bike is an NC700X with DCT and it does have chain drive so I had to learn how to perform chain cleaning while on the road because all my previous road bikes had shaft drive. I've mainly been using WD-40 as a cleaner and carry plastic, throwaway gloves with me plus a handful of paper towels. At 16k miles, I've only adjusted it once so it hardly shows any wear!

    Congrats on the new bike, Karl. You stole it!

    The bag system on the Trophy is the same as the Sprint GT. I have had zero issues with mine in almost 3 years and 40,000 miles. If you take the saddlebags off make sure to get the tabs in their slots on the front of the bags so their swing is properly limited.
