New Rack and Convenience
Probably the one issue I have with the NC700 and long trips is having to unstrap whatever I have on the the pillion seat or undo the saddlebags in order to fill up. I like having the storage space in the frunk, and the gas tank under the seat keeps the weight low, but it adds nearly 10 minutes to a gas stop to unhook and redo the gear. So, there is a guy on the NC700 forums that fabricates rear racks that take the place of the pillion seat. Considering I never had a passenger, I figured why not. So, ordered the rack and a locking gas cap and got it mounted on the bike.
Video Copy and Storage!
This year I want to shoot and post more videos. Of course, that will mean being able to clear the camera’s MicroSD card quickly and easily while on the go (or at least while stopping for a bite.) So, I went looking for a hard drive that was both wifi-enabled and would pull from a MicroSD card. My first glance showed me an expensive solution for a 256GB drive with the processing shell for $400. I know I can do better.
