    I have a Seat concepts saddle on my KLX, so I'll shill too. It's quite firm, but world's better than the stock Kawi saddle.

    That range is enticing, I think the CB500X is on my short list of future bikes.

    Hey Cruz,

    What tires are those? How do you like them?

    Thanks!

    Pirelli MT60 Corsa. Grip is brilliant, handling improved a lot, ride comfort improved a lot. Great on wet or dry bitumen , good on dirt, not great in wet clay. Not a high mileage wearing tyre but aplenty of fun tyre every ride.

    Rear tyre will last me around 4,500 klms, front is lasting a lot better, about half worn with same mileage.

    No, I don't have a centre stand fitted. From what other owners have said, you have to use the SW Motech centre stand with their bash plate, the Honda model isn't compatable.
