Sweet. It looks new. Cool color scheme.

I went through your area two weeks ago. Lovely riding in the Mark Twain state forest areas. You have some great riding in your neck of the woods. The X is well suited to it.

As long as you don't ride a 2019 you'll enjoy the 2016 :307:
It's not a big motorcycle just a groovy little motorbike

Hmm, should the 2019 model be higher? Honda say officially the seat height of the 2019er with 810 mm. In addition, the seat is narrower cut forward, which increases the seat / standing comfort.
Of course, the 2019 also has ABS, at least in Germany, here it is standard for all new motorcycles.

To clarify - 2013-18 model has a 810mm seat height, the 2019-on model has a 830mm seat height.
