I think your "humor detector" is malfunctioning. My post is actually a thumbs up for the CB500X in that a rider took a CB500X out on a true enduro competition course and rode a portion of that course. Granted this rider is better than your average dude, but it speaks well that they didn't have to get a tow truck to get him and his bike out of there. I'm sure he did this for fun, and that part in the video looks like a likely and logical place for him to have stopped...but maybe not. Point is that it's always somewhat amazing how some can take an ADV bike and push it beyond what many think shouldn't be attempted. I do not have or intend to get a Honda CB500X, but I stay up with these threads on it because I have a level of respect and curiosity about the bike...and honestly all "good" ADV bikes...and many of the things we as owners/riders of this category of bikes find out is the fact that much of the knowledge and experiences transfer all or in part to other ADV bikes. As an aside, I've raced the Boondockers numerous times over the years, so I can appreciate his effort and fun factor for taking the CB500X out there.
