Our latest: 2022 Honda CB500X
Author: Ellaspede Date Posted:4 October 2023
If you’re after a versatile and capable adventure bike without breaking the budget then the Honda CB500X is hard to go past. But after a few rides, owner Stephen knew there was more to be uncorked in the aesthetic and enjoyment departments of Honda’s midsize adventure machine.
Stephen sets the scene… “I bought it brand new and rode it around the mountain roads near Brisbane for a while. Then one day I took it out on a forest trail ride with a mate at Boonoo Boonoo National Park, where I crashed on a loose gravel corner. It wasn't a bad crash, but the gearbox cover cracked open and the bike was not going anywhere... Fast forward a few months after a local repair shop fixed it all up and I was back on another forest trail, this time without incident but with an idea forming that this bike could be so much better off-road with a few mods.”
