A change of jobs has introduced a 30+ miles cross country commute each way, every day. I did look at another airhead to run alongside my R100, but they have gone up in price recently and getting a cheap bike to put a lot of miles on seems to consigned to history.
Enter the Honda NC750X. Half a Honda Jazz engine, so a parallel twin, 270 deg firing order and lots of balancer shafts, only revs to 6500rpm. Low outright bhp, but high low down torque. Up to 80 mpg (uk gallons), 8000 mile service intervals, yada, yada.
Funnily enough, rides like an airhead. The X refers to its adventure bike styling. Bought a manual, as good as the auto (dual clutch gearbox) is, its a 10kg luxury I can do without.
Keep my Airhead for the weekends.
There, they do say sharing your shame, somehow lifts the burden slightly.
