FIRST RIDE 2020 Honda CB 500X

Updated: Dec 14, 2020

I've been reluctant to give the 500X another chance after riding a 2018 model some time back and thinking how did Honda get this so wrong. Admittedly I'd jumped from my very familiar BMW G310GS onto it on a far from perfect minority mountain road but it just had really poor front end feel by comparison when pushed through the apex. Since that's the aspect of motorcycling I love the most I resigned myself that it wasn't for me.
