So I am very lucky to have a wife who supports my passion for motorcycling as she was a rider too.  I have also been fortunate financially (well, we worked hard, went without, and saved a lot).  So the combination makes for easy conversations and understanding of why I want our money to go to something that we really don't need.  Elane is riding a scooter but only around the neighborhood and to Publix.  So i went out and bought a brand new Yamaha Xmax.  I've only ridden it for 25 miles but it was quite a bit of fun!  Not sure I am going to keep it long term but keeps me on two wheels for the meantime.  Crazy that I fit on a scooter.  Had it up to 80 no problem at all and it was very stable and comfortable.  Got a good deal at the dealer.  I am going to wait for the 21 750 to come out before I decide on the next bike.

Good to hear you're keeping a two wheeler ride at hand. I'm expecting my first child end of August. I too have a very understanding fiancee who understands my addiction to motorcycling (we're lucky ones!). I could never part with a two wheeled ride, although I'll probably be riding less the coming year. I'm even tempted to start getting an instructors license, since I already have all categories. Might turn my hobby into actual payed work.

Anyhow, I'm very interested in your 750x findings, especially the ergonomics. And congratz on the Xmax!

Congrats on the new addition to the family!  Very exciting!  I am at the other end of the spectrum with one in a career and applying for a PHD program, the other just graduated university and is applying for her first adult job.  The PHD candidate rides bikes and scooters, the recent grad rides a 150 scooter too.  I never thought it would be so true that they grow up in a blink of an eye, but they do. 

I will let you know on the 2021.  The dealer is going to call me as soon as it comes in.

I put some more miles on the Xmax today.  It is a blast to ride!

Hey Mike, couldn't resist letting you know that today I learned that the 2021 750X costs €8790,- brand new, what?! :005: and just €9900 for DCT in The Netherlands. I have my eyes set on the T7 due to it's height and offroad capability (and those gorgeous gorgeous headlights) but it's 4K more. And with the coming of a new Transalp, possibly and most likely presented at this year's EICMA for Honda's 2022 lineup, I'm hoping they use the same engine, weight and price range. Damn, I need to sit my ass down on one of those new NC's. I thought the NC was well over 12K+
Honda lowered their price for a new bike, instead of rising it as one would expect. I'm still baffled... If I ever sell the CrossT, I only need a few grant and I got myself a brand new bike.

The Netherlands is generally the most expensive country in Europe when it comes to buying new vehicles (lots and lots of tax), so I'm guessing the bike is going to be an absolute steal in the US!
