Hi, am a learner and got on my Honda CB 500 2019 model for the first time. It rode beautifully, but the issue I had was changing gears. I had to pull up immediately as my boot hardly fitted between the footpeg and gear lever, making changing gears an acrobatic feat. Is it just me getting used to a new bike with new boots? My wife, a seasoned rider suggested changing gears from the side with an inward / upward action. I learnt on a Suzuki 250 drz and had no issues. Comments anyone.
