WRR23 Riding the Honda CTX 700n
 
18:00
This week I take my first spin on an automatic motorcycle. It was a fairly strange experience for me, as you can see me grasping at the phantom clutch lever. Truth be told, I got used to it fairly quickly, and the Honda CTX-700n is extremely easy to ride. The auto definitely takes away a lot of the fun of riding a motorcycle, but for those who either can't or don't want to learn to shift their own gears - it's a solid little bike.

In contrast with the Goldwing's "old man bike" reputation, the F6B sports a low-slung appearance, with a bit more of an attitude. Yet it still retains many of the qualities that Goldwing aficionados have been praising for years. A smooth, torquey engine, comfortable ergos, and a decent amount of built in storage make the F6B great for a big, sporty touring bike.

With just the peak and chin bar installed, the helmet flows a great amount of air while still providing the same protection of a full face helmet. With the chin bar, face shield and peak removed it becomes a true three quarter open face helmet. This gives the rider a great range of flexibility.
