I'll be honest. I forgot about Honda's CTX700. Basically the cruiser version of Honda's ultra-commuter NC700X, the CTX700 faded from my memory banks. Maybe because it was underwhelming, maybe because it's about as vanilla as they come, or maybe because it's just plain ugly, the CTX700 failed to leave a lasting impression (the NC700X is a different story. I actually like it. But that's for another time).
Being “vertically challenged” is rough: you’re hard to spot in a crowd, you can’t see squat at concerts, and it’s a struggle to hop on many of the rides at the amusement park. The worst part of all is trying to find a motorcycle that’ll allow you to touch the ground. Some of the saddles on today’s motorcycles are so high only basketball players dare throw a leg over.
