I watch that guy on the sh made some panniers out of plastic ammo boxes .
Yeah, that's him. I've watched all his scooter videos, I love em. Just all about the riding and adventure of exploring and being out in nature. It's what I love about being on two wheels.

Re: Back on a nc

Make sure you try them first as very different beasts to the Burger 650. Yeah, I did sit on a SH300i and thought it was tiny compared to Burg but I liked the seating position. I also watch a you tuber who has a Sh150i and he goes all over Canada on it, I love how simple it looks to manage/ride. As ...

Re: Back on a nc

In November I sold the Burg 650 and got a NC750X DCT. I have been commuting on it as much as I can (heated clothing/gloves) and going out on any weekend it wasn't raining. For two months I thought I had made a good decision but.... I am missing having a scooter. I have no idea what the pull is with ...

Re: Honda X-ADV

Thanks for all the replies folks! So I'm still enjoying the Burgman but next year I plan to do some road trips. Possibly heading to Scotland with some other bikers who have adventure style bikes and they do a bit of green laning/single track roads etc. So it would be good if I could go off road a bi...

Honda X-ADV

Anyone got one of these? Just wondering how good they are. It appears to bridge the gap between maxi scooter and bike in the sense that it's auto, has foot-boards, storage but with a bike chassis, proper swing arm and suspension like a bike. Also, with its "off road" capabilities (however, I realise...

Re: Pointless screen ?

I am guessing it would stop the full force of the wind against the riders body, perhaps prevent buffeting but allow a little bit of focused air for cooling.

A bit like the clearview screen on the burgman 650, but on that screen the vent is adjustable.
