    Hmmmm, is right. I love my NC but this decrepit old man misses the riding position, and not much else, I had on the Honda Silver Wing I used to own. I'm probably never going to get the chance to ride the X-ADV so I shouldn't worry.

Oh, and maybe 100 lbs. less weight. Interesting.
    I wouldn't mind a light in the frunk too.Luckily I had a small flashlight in there I was able to feel for so I could locate something last night. I also need a usb socket so I can charge my phone.

    HONDA should offer 2 version of these .one for the road.
    at a cheaper price to.
    small wheels is not a problem for me.
    I've owned two maxi,piaggio x9 and a Suzuki Burgman 400
    as I get older the time may come that I would have to consider a maxi instead of a bike.
    those crash bars look dead easy for me to make and also could weld a tubing for extended footrest to.
    not only that backrest to.

    I posted this on ADV Rider this morning.

    Mind blown (there wasn't much left there after all these years). This thing really needs a skid plate. Are you listening SW-Motech?

    Kinda cute, it would be nice to be able to rent one and ride around Thailand (and adjacent countries) where accommodations and restaurants are cheap and you don't need any camping/cooking gear (just snorkeling gear) with you. I'd rent one!

    18 centuries of the choice, 'believe this way or die', & always chosen life, is a lineage difficult to separate from. I understand. But do not fear my belief science created the universe, I'll never say "Big Bang's Will" made me do you harm. We are a genuinely free & peaceful lot.
