And back to photos. Taken on the way to work today... a bit of a detour, but worth it.
Cruisin' the local logging roads looking for new vantage points.
Found one. (a little too steep to bring the bike up)
Amabilis Mountain, north side of I-90, just west of Lake Kachess
Meh.....Just get a good run at it. No problem. Racer
Correction...." to steep for (you) to bring the bike up..
More pics , Spain last week. DSC01891 by herman munster, on Flickr DSC01901 by herman munster, on Flickr DSC01920 by herman munster, on Flickr
Not Cornwall, Dorset..... the pic location is a small coastal hamlet called Seatown.
I spent the day in the garage yesterday refreshing Lisa's 2013 model...
Those of you who have followed the Rally-Raid thread may recall that this is actually the bike that started it all - Lisa bought this new-old stock 2013 model (originally black of course) in 2014, and after I'd ridden it a good few miles here in the US, went back to the UK where John and I started working on what would be come the 'adventure' conversion kit for these bikes.

This bike already had the Rally-Raid LEVEL 1 (standard travel) suspension, foot-pegs and engine guard fitted, plus more recently the Scorpion exhaust - and Lisa has also fitted some saddle style bar risers (still with the OEM bars), the Tall Honda Accessory screen, heated grips and BarkBuster S5 hand-guards (the single point, bar-end mounting version) with Storm shields.
It's currently wearing it's stock wheels and commuter tyres, but she also has a second set (my original cast wheels) with some TKC80's fitted for more off-road orientated riding.
The refresh included a complete service/fluid change here at home, plus I took it into the dealer to get the valves checked/adjusted... turns out that even after 36,000 miles they were still well within spec (that was an expensive confirmation!)
Having had the front fairing off the bike for that task, we decided to fit my original 2014 white tank and side panels (in Heritage colours, and complete with Rubicon scratches ;o), and also remove the smog canister (ahem) before putting everything back together.
We've got a multi-day trip planned through northern California and into Oregon planned for later this summer, so stand by for some more photos then!
Today on my work commute to home, me and my 500x fell victim of a careless taxi driver. I've done a 10/10 point salto over the car, landing on my feet. Currently waiting for an Xray to prove to the docs that I'm fine and I can go home.
Front forks, front fender and right side footpeg are gone, beak plastics and the upper side panels are cracked, but still serving.
Take care you all.
Good to hear you are fine and elementary school gymnastics training useful. Hope X-Rays turn out negative. Take care...
Glad to hear you are okay, but it hurts me to see your bike down. Racer
Good to hear you’re OK. I’ll have to remember that evasive move in that situation.
Bummer! But glad to hear you're doing well. And the pics seem to do a good job of suggesting why things went wrong for the authorities, insurance claims(?), etc.
Best of luck with all the crap you'll have to be dealing with over the next few weeks.
Wow, glad you're ok, brother, hope all goes well with everything
After four Honda Transalp 600 (fantastic machine!), I got a Honda CB 500 X and the result is very good after 7000 km (mainly on mountains roads) with this bike. Easy to ride, confortable, low power consumption (about 3 liters/100), it will be a good bike to go on travelling.
