Hi all, thanks for excepting me on your forum, I am hoping to move up from my 2013 NC 700x to a crosstourer, any advice. I am 87 kilos and 171cm I think a lower seat is my first option ? Ride safe out there, treat everyone else as a potential killer out to get you and you should be fine !!

Well, with 171cm, I think it is a MUST to buy a lower seat, or at least a modification of the original one.
Go to the gym , you will need to be strong 275 kilos its a big lump
I work out every day in the grounds where I am the gardener
My bike is lowered much better than messing with the seat
You'll soon get used to it.... :)
Yes i have looked at that option as well! but it changes the geometry and handling! have you noticed a before and after difference?
I see on the net its artound 50€ my seat man for the 750nc was close to 300€!!
Thanks I hope so ,,I am an ex motocrosser, in the past ( the 80's) I had a Honda 480CR to chuck around ;-))
I brought it lowered from our Honda dealer. Had it a year now 8000 miles later all seems good to me its just nice to get both feet flat on the ground.
Get dirty easily though
It looks like you've just ridden through a sh*t storm Russ
171 cm is good enough. I'm 170cm OK for me
This item on eBay is fully adjustable works fine for me https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/181912073149
