Just got back from quick 1500 mile trip to MO----near Joplin.

Heavy Winds NT maybe better

Comfort in the Boiler that is the south----SilverWing is probably more comfortable.

Pushing bike around and doing U turns on dirt roads---Nature Breaks---SilverWing.

Air Management---jury is still out----one secret go slower regardless of bike.

Seat---NT I sit on the jewels, SilverWing not.
Although NT has very little engine heat coming on you-----SilverWing is better in 90 degree weather.

Rain---both ok.

605 miles first day----NT caused no body pain, hands tired.....but I am used to riding everyday---comfortable or I at 72 would have been dead.

I have been doing this 56 years, but you learn on every trip:

Mesh jackets suck when really hot or cold!

So hot---2 pr of boots required in South, change out each day. Sweating in the same boots after 3 days makes them uncomfortable.

I went back to hold habit of bib overalls----great when hot and work fine in cold, too.

One clean bathroom on return trip, Wendys near Nashville.

I ride both all the time. Each has positive and negatives. I will probably trade the NT when the Silverwing gets a decent upgrade. Still working on the ergos of the NT. According to ergos on line, even with the MCL riser I am at a 20 degree lean. Too much.

The highlight of your report for me, as the NT 700 is not available in Canada.
Thank you.

Like to comment on "forward lean" That is exactly why NT is comfortable.

Bar Risers put you farther back from shield===buffeting.

Sitting upright=back pain.

Cruisers are very unfortable because of the high bars/feet forward.


SilverWing is/was the most comfortable feet forward scooter I have owned.

No forward lean is why the Silverwing is comfortable. Ergos show me at zero degrees lean. I can ride the Swing for hours without discomfort. The NT gives me discomfort after 30 minutes. If lean is where it's most comfortable, we'd all be on sport bikes.

See my post today on the "Mid Concept" that seems to be a reality. This bike ought to combine all the good bits of both the SilverWing AND the VT-700 (Deauville).

Peter

I would say more of the DN-01 than the VT700. I like it.

I looked at an NT when I considered downsizing a bit from my Goldwing but after sitting on the NT decided the GW is definitely the long distance bike for me. The SW is the best for local riding.
