I've always liked GS500's, always wanted one, but I just dont fit on them. Cheap to run and insurance, basic maintenance most owners could perform and able to cruise at 100km/h +. I borrowed one for several days not long ago, a really old beaten up bike but the more I rode it the more it grew on me. I actually ended up having some fun on it.
I saw the CB500X at a dealership not long ago and wondered what the heck it was. In my mind it is the ideal tall-guy budget commuter, sort of a liquid cooled, fuel injected successor to the GS500. If my Vee got written off today I think I would be looking at spending my insurance cheque on one of these. A nice, new, tallish, dirt cheap Honda. I like 'em.
