Did they fix that annoying overly big horn button that was on the 2018 model?

Nope, but you get that on all of the Hondas.

Guess it goes without saying-but the first one to see it in a US dealer-- to shout out--I'm going to my dealer Tuesday to see if he ordered one being he still has a 2017 on the floor that I would buy if I could get it for $1500 less out the door now that we know the price of it--we will see
After reading all the posts by thirtyone about the trouble he's having finding a sweet spot with a windshield-- I had a flashback with my 2014- same thing never did find a shield that worked- so with that said I'm going to wait for the 2019 to come in- seems the reviews so far claims the new shield works much better-saving a few bucks on a left over and going through that again is not worth it

Oh come on, it's fun spending hundreds of hours and dollars trying to fix a simple problem.  :030:

Here's the latest on the 2019 X -today my Powerhouse 5 dealer stated this week is order week for the first shipment of the 2019 X and they should be in southern dealers no later than 5/31/19-he thinks he will have his mid May-not sure about the rest of the country

All fun and games but what about the mental part-have you started talking to your self saying things like this can be fixed-and the other side of you brain saying NO it can't give up-it ate me up so much after a few beers I took out the grinder saying to the bike take this and removed the windshield brackets-problem solved--

I sure was hoping for the beginning of May! I'm not to far from you down in da swamp so that'll likely be the time frame for mine also. I leave May 8th for a week and a half of riding in New Mexico/Arizona. Was hoping to take the X. I'll have to ride the WR which ant bad just not quite as comfy on long days.

Oh we're on chapter 12 of the epic length soliloquy.  :008: I pulled into a gas station off the highway 6 times one night to make adjustments to my Madstad screen. I'm sure the guys that work there think I'm bat sh#t crazy.

Madstad worked great on my VStrom. That's why I dropped the coin for it right away. I was really disappointed my results on the 500X. Anway, we're plenty  :450: at this point. Viva la 2019! I can't wait to go check it out in the showrooms when I'm back in the USA this summer.
