Seems these guys did pretty well on bikes far heavier and with far less suspension travel than the new 500x. Does that make them posers?

I don't think anyone used the term 'posers'.

I would applaud anyone taking the 500X off-road, because it's not built or intended for it, by Honda's own admission.

But that's different from carping about it's lack of off-road utility. It's like complaining that your banana is curved, when what you really want is a straight one.
