No jumping a shark, whatever that means, just trying to figure out where you got you information other than making it up based on "they all do that, so it must be on purpose"? Just to be clear. Because all of them do it, you conclude that Honda engineered a floppy tail light, when NO other bike has that? Bikes that are far more off road capable have tail lights that do not flop around! Amazing leap of logic, or illogic. Just to make sure people do not think I am a hater, I like the bike. I think it is great that a reasonably priced bike is available. One that has decent power, decent suspension, and decent electronics! Good on Honda, it is about time! I'll stop now. You are right about one thing. No point in cluttering this thread with silliness.
