Bike Swap 2 - Onboard the BMX F900 XR and Honda Rebel 500
After filming our first ever Test Ride on the 2019 Honda Rebel 500, we decided to switch motorcycles, for a bit of fun! Here Matt, who owns a Triumph Bobber Black sat on the BMW F900 XR for the first time. Rupert who owns the BMW, was on the Honda Rebel 500. We thought our cameras had died at this point, but thankfully the Insta360 One R Twin was still recording! It's fun the hear some honest feedback, when they think the cameras aren't running! Uploaded for a bit of fun.
Honda Rebel 500 Test Ride - How does it compare to the Iron 883?
The Honda Rebel and Harley Davidson's Iron 883 are often compared, despite being very different motorcycles. However, the two cruisers do have some similarities making the Honda Rebel 500 (CMX500) a real contender for both new riders, A2 licence holders and those wanting a stylish cruiser with the hefty price tag! It was also the perfect time to test out the Insta360 camera. Equipment used: Insta360 Twin GoPro 8 GoPro 7 GoPro 5 GoPro 4
Bike Swap - when friends ride each other's bike!
Caught by accident after filming our review on the Honda Rebel 500, we decided to switch bikes and ride each others motorcycles! Including a BMX F900XR and a Triumph Bobber Black 1200, so quite a varied mix. Most of our equipment had died by this point; notably Matt’s camera on the Rebel and my mic on the BMX, but we were able to capture this little gem. The Honda Rebel 500 may be half the price of the other bikes, but it's definitely not half the bike! Equipment: Insta360 GoPro 7 GoPro 5 GoPro 4 Tascam DL-10 audio recorders.
