Swanny,

Selling the bike as it really doesn't fully fit what I do with my big trail type bikes. Well, not without spending a heap of cash on raising it's ground clearance it doesn't :005:

The fact that I have bikes that can do what I want off piste means, to me at least, that the 500X in its "out of the box" Honda form, doesn't fit my needs. Yes I know, it's taken me nearly 5k miles and over 9 months to figure that out. What can I say - I'm a slow learner  :164:

I'd hoped to traverse some of the Yorkshire Dales trails on it this spring. Seems that the C19 lock down saved me learning the hard way when a long way from home  :012:

AJC500 - The F8GS ain't going anywhere. It's made for what I like to do and have done on it and the 3 that preceded it. Neither is the 600 Transalp going anywhere - I'm a V-twin luvver and the 600 version of this engine is, in my opinion & experience, the best of all the medium capacity V-twin engines that Honda have built.

Nope, the CB5X can continue to rack up the miles alongside the other two over the coming months then, when spring arrives, I'll test the water with the CB5X again then  :007:
