Video: The CFMOTO 650MT is a bargain, full sized, adventure sport LAMS approved all-rounder, which is exactly why Nick chose it as a long termer. Here's the latest on life with the MT...

With COVID-19 restrictions limiting Nick to riding within his LGA, plus having to study from home rather than ride 200km per day to Uni, the 650MT has not had as many miles clocked up as we had hoped. Still, Nick’s managed to get out for a few rides…

So far our CFMOTO 650MT has had a few key upgrades. After the first service, which you can read about here, I fitted some eBay special bar risers to better accomodate my height. I also fitted the SHAD luggage and Unifilter, and finally some tasty Avon Trailrider tyres from Pro Accessories. Since then, I’ve been getting out on the bike when possible in the current restrictions. I’ve done some off-road and road testing and general daily use. Life has been pretty good with the 650MT, it’s a great bike…
