Hi all, just bought 2018 "X"
For as many years as I want to remember I have had big bikes or sports bikes// Couple of years ago I had a rain fart which left my right side weak, but after reoccupation I carried on riding, still with big bikes..Several Blackbirds, a few BM 1200GS's, even had a Wing ( sorry ! ( for a wee while..
But things aint got any easier .. I am OK riding them. It is when I stop the trouble starts  LOL !!
So I decided that it was about time I faced up to the fact I needed something I would not drop when moving it about
Being a tit, I bought a Piaggio MP3 500 Sport.. Nice bike, fun to ride, but 4 weeks of it was enough.......
Taking on board what a member of this 'ere forum said to me, I went and checked out an X for my self ..
I was so impressed I bought one there and then   :152:
Had full luggage fitted so I had to sit on my hands for a week while Wheels of Peterborough ordered and fitted the kit
Collected it today and rode it home the 60 miles...
Immediately felt at home... And my goodness don't they track well !!! Pick a line, tip it in, and it will hold the line perfectly
Already seen off the chicken strips on the back tyre ( I think the previous owner thought he was riding a tram or something )
Enough urge to keep me happy and fantastic fuel economy so far

Tomorrow I will fit my GPS, a throttle lock, 12v socket under the seat, and run the wires ready for the USB/12V socket for the handlebars, and slap a Scottoiler on
3 weeks time I will be off to Lake Garda on it.  10 days of camping with a few hundred German and Italian bikers  :002:

I fully expect it to really love the bike.. It has given be back an awful lot of confidence in just the short time I rode it..
Don't know what forum name he uses on here, but Brian, gotta thank you for showing me the way back to proper biking.. and thank Honda for making such a great all round mile muncher !
