When traveling with a passenger, not only the pure performance is decisive, but also the torque curve, especially in the lower engine speeds. The better an engine works here, the more comfortable it is to drive a motorcycle in pairs.
I had no problems with my VFR, you only noticed when you braked hard that someone was sitting in the back.

at Motorboy: you mean this one...?

I also saw this protection in the bay. I didn't like it so much, so I thought about building something like that myself.
After measuring, I created the drawing and then built a cardboard model to see if it really fits. Then I buyed a piece of sheet metal made of 1.5 mm aluminum, drawed it, sawed it, drilled it and filed it. Unfortunately I don't have a professional folding bench, so I had to improvise quite a bit with my small vice.
It worked quite well for a first try, but I will make another, somewhat improved version in the course of the summer. Until then, it will remain on the X.

(The first picture shows the professional ebay version)

CB500X - General Chat / Re: Honda cb500x 2019 vs yamaha tracer 700 2020

I also stood between the choice of CBX and the Tracer 700. Both machines have their advantages, the Tracer has a great, more powerful motor, the better, but poorly controllable brakes. But the Honda has the better standard suspension, for my physique the better sitting position and in my eyes is the better overall package.
After testing both machines, I decided on the CBX. In the linked thread I wrote a detailed driving report for the Tracer 700.

The next small step to make my X more individual.
Please excuse the non-standard drawing, which I made quickly with my idea.
What could that be ...?

I once read the Bruudt website in Germany. It is a machine factory that produces CNC parts and also has its own powder coating.
MisterPaul also describes that he received a new, suitable spare part for his order within a few days.
This suggests that Bruudt probably produces the parts himself.

My advice, for what it is worth, is enjoy Germany. The roads along the Moselle and Rhine are stunning. This includes the Nurburgring, the WW2 Bridge at Remagen. Food is brilliant and they know how to brew beer.

OOOOOh yeah... :821:  :005:  :087:

If you only have 6 days, I would advise you against the Alps, the journey there takes too long and is too stressful. For the Alps you need at least 10-14 days to enjoy some routes there.
The Ardennes in Belgium, Luxenburg, the Eifel, Bergisches Land or Sauerland in Germany would offer themselves for just 6 days, countless beautiful winding routes, uphill and downhill.
Or you can do sightseeing on the Rhine and Moselle with many castles and palaces as hilldweller said. The Rhine Valley between Cologne and Worms is one of the most beautiful and romantic in the world.
