Back on a nc

Post by charles1976 » Fri Feb 15, 2019 7:11 pm

After a few days dithering and eeking out a deal... I finally decided it was time to trade the burgy 400 in for an updated 18 model nc....

Within minutes of getting back on... Better suspension breaks ride quality engine pick up and the smile was back!

Pearlescent white shining away in the spring February temperatures!

I'll miss the under seat storage but nothing more....

NC what exactly - a motorcycle or scooter - if motorcycle then you no longer qualify as an maxi muppet

Well if Symcity is wanting to be that selective and exclusive, he wouldn't qualify either as the SH 300 is a step through or step thru scooter not a maxi. Neither would Muppets owners of similar design scooters, Trad scooters, Innova type bikes, the much loved C90 Cub and others like it.

Then there's Muppets with Auto Only Licences who in the past and present have owned motorcycles with Honda DCT gearboxes, various NC models, the Integra of course, the DN-01, the X-ADV etc. Years before they rode the Yamaha FJR 1300 AS, and the Aprilia 850 Mana GT as they were the only licence friendly options available

Then he and a couple of others have joined the silverwing600 forum in the past despite not owning a Silver Wing, just to rattle on about their SH300's. I still go on that forum and similarly rattle on about the Forza I've had for the last few months purely out of habit, as since I sold it last year my interest in the Silver Wing is now zero.

In reality we're just a load of blokes playing on our iPads or whatever, giving fellow Muppets something to read about our common interest. :)
