Honda X-ADV

To counteract my dull daily commute, I’m planning lots of mini adventures throughout the year to see if the X-ADV really is as much fun to ride as it looks. I’ve booked a touring holiday to Bikefest Ireland which includes a chance to ride the spectacular Wild Atlantic Way, a day off-road training in mid-Wales, and with the #Ride5000Miles challenge to achieve, too, it’s going to be a busy year of riding… bring it on!

    MCN Fleet: Hooray for the Honda X-ADV

    This morning didn’t start well. I glance out of my kitchen window and a fallen fence greets me, annoyingly it’s the one we’re responsible for. Loads of branches from the trees at the bottom of our...

    MCN Fleet: X-ADV meets the family

    My Honda X-ADV is definitely the motorcycling equivalent of Marmite, you either love it or hate it. Me, I love it (I mean the X-ADV, I despise Marmite with a passion!). I discovered Honda had sold 211...
