    old fl rider

    I am 75 years old. Still riding. Have had many bikes from scooters to cruisers to Sport Touring (ST1300/FJR). I once even had a Pacific Coast.

    The NT looks nice and I am looking at them. Currently have a Silverwing scooter and a VStrom DL650

    Welcome to NT-World, ol fl rider! We've got a great Forum and, IMNSHO, the NT is a great bike. I started riding in 97 and my first bike was an '83 GL650i Silverwing. I followed that with two '99 Kawasaki Concours before buying my NT in March of 2010. It's done everything I've asked of it for the last 125,000 miles!

    Welcome to the NT forum! If you liked the PC, you will like the NT even better!
    I currently have a 2010 NT and a 2009 Suzuki DL650. Great combo.....

    Welcome neighbor. I live in North East Naples and I ride a 2010 Red NT. They are the fast NT models and we get more looks. HaHa. If you would like to meet sometime just send me a pm and we will arrange a meet. Enjoy our beautiful riding weather.

    I personally have a 2010 NT700V (NaTalie) and 2013 NC700X (NaNCy) with the DCT. Both in silver. Now those are a perfect combo.
