    Hmm, I don't have any of those issues with mine...

    Maybe a Gold Wing might be more your speed?

    No need to attack ME, fella, just because I feel Honda didn't follow through on this bike. I didn't say anything negative towards you.
    There's a reason you can buy a NEW vfrx for $9k now. 2 or 3 model years old still on the showroom.

    No fault of the bike's actually but I will admit Honda NA did leave the model poorly advertised and supported over here. The AT took all the limelight. However, the CT has been (and remains even in 2019) a perennial best seller all over Europe.

    Suggesting you might like a Gold Wing is a personal attack? lol

    Thanks to these discussions and Jarrett2.

    I have V-Strom650 (2013) for 5 years.
    As time goes by, I hate to care about the chain.
    Because the frame and swingarm can't be cleaned forever.

    And the power of 650cc already no feeling when speed of 100Km/h the rpm 4,500 is too high.

    Of course, Africatwin are very good, but thank you for your discussion.
    I have a deeper preference for VFRX , even can't buy a new one in 2019 Taiwan.
    I hope that I can change to VFRX as soon as possible!
