Normally, we start with stone-stock bikes and work from there. But this NC had already been dragged through Honda's accessory catalog. It came with hard saddlebags, 55-liter top trunk, associated racks, light mount (don’t call it a crash bar), centerstand, tall windshield, heated handgrips, and upper and lower wind deflectors. To get a feel for living with the stock bike before going farkle crazy, I removed everything but the luggage mounts (because some stock components are removed when they’re installed) centerstand, heated grips, and “brushed alu-look” cowl accents. Over time, I’ll add them back and report how they work.
