    Hi, my name is Loran and I recently added a 2011 ABS NT700 to my garage. I wanted something lighter than my ST1300 for shorter trips and still have a nice range on a single tank of fuel. I also have an 1983 V65 Magna (used to have 4 different V65 Magnas at one time). I have had a couple of different Kawasaki VN750s which I did some traveling with (Montana, touched into Canada, Black Hills, the dragon) but stopping every 100 miles wasn't to my liking.

    Welcome from Puget Sound, Loran!

    You do realize that living where you do, puts you in close proximity to the annual Spearfish Rally in South Dakota next year. The dates are already set, so mark your calendar!

    Welcome to the NT forum Loran! The NT is a good match for the ST.
    Agree on the short range of the big v-twin Kawasaki's. Had a VN1500 with a 4.2 gallon tank. 100 to 120 miles per tank was about all I could get. Probably averaged 33 to 35 mpg.

    Hi, Loran! Welcome to NT-World. We've got a great Forum and you've got a great bike. From Jim's comment I'm guessing that your bike is his old one. I thought semi-seriously about buying it but decided mine still had plenty of miles left in it. I've spent many miles behind your bike and in front of it when Jim and I rode to Alaska together in 2013.

    Come join us in Spearfish!
