Comfort the afflicted and afflict the comfortable.

It's nice to see a FT500 getting some love. These were a solid bike, yeah, not HUGELY exciting, but solid and reliable. They suffered from the design trends of the day and lots of them seem to be hiding away in the background, off in a quiet and dusty corner, because they aren't hyper or sexy (as is). Eric has, now more than once, proven that one of Honda's ugly ducklings, if given some love, can be a capable, fun ride, and is worthy of attention. Good work, Irk.
