Big bikes and long hikes. Where's your big bike taking you today?

New toy

Post by sgthubbard60 »

In typical me fashion I couldn't get an adventure bike til I found a mint and rare Honda. Snagged this fine example of a 89 NX650 up over the weekend. Looking forward to this new type of riding!

Congrats on your new ride, nice choice. You will love ADV riding. I like to tell people it is like snowmobiling except it's warm out. We are heading down to NC in September for the Blue Ridge AMA National ADV ride and will post a report.

I think I'm in love... Google "Camel Marathon Bike", there are a few websites and YouTube videos on it out there. All done on more or less stock NX650's.

thats a beautful nx! A lot of folks don't even know what they are. I love that it's an air head! what did you end up paying for that bike if you don't mind me asking? I've been looking for the that exact bike. I want to thin out the heard and get rid of my NX and xr350 and get one of those because I feel like it would be a perfect occasional road rider and be a good dirt bike spare (and take up,less room in the garage)
