My longest trip was when I bought my PCX in Nanaimo (Vancouver Island) and drove it home to Vancouver BC.

The trip was about 50 miles (80 KMS) but most of that distance was in a ferry

LOL....well not really, but even not counting the ferry portion, it still was my longest journey... as my next longest ride would have be about 8 miles (12.5 KMS).

My typical ride is to get beer & food, which is about a mile away.

In two years I only put on 2000 KMS (~1250 miles), so I don't ride it far but do drive it almost everyday, even in the winter

I rode from Hacienda Heights to Chino Hills to San Diego and back on Christmas Day 2017. Nine-hour road trip.

My longest ride? Probably 10 miles, and then only because I store it for Squirrel and she didn't winterize it due to the extended season we had this year & the one or two 65F days a month we're getting. So if it hasn't been run for a month and she''s working on "the warm day" I'll take it for a short run.

The PCX sure is different. The tiny little front wheel and putting your feet together sure makes it squirrely. And the riding posriding is so "proper:" being upright, knees together, arms quite functionally positioned. The power is a bit odd too, it comes on hard from a stop, and if you give it a twist of the wrist you'd best hang on because it'll leave without you. Then it fags out the last quarter turn. It's a freaky, twitchy, exhilarating launch, kind of like being with a gangly redhead the first time: don't know what to expect, other than the unexpected, and it's going to be an adventure.

Then I took the Fury out. No more launch consisting of" Brrrrrrrrr... Whahahahahaha! Now it's: Potato, potato, potato, hash browns. The big V-twin and smooth clutch are totally predictable, and the steering is odd the other way--it wants to go straight, and you kind of "fall" into a turn. A long wheelbase and a tall front wheel with a rear fatty do that. The seating position is very low to the ground, and it's a stretch to the pegs & bars--totally comfortable in a completely different way.

I feel more at home on the chopper, it's a flossy brunette packing C-4 and a left hook. But who doesn't like a spindly redhead with attitude? I'll take her for a spin--definitely.

I just noticed the foot rest area on the newer PCX. My 2013 model looks different there, like it was meant to be there. I cant tell on yours if it is the same but the picture angle makes it look different, or if it in fact looks like it was added on after the bike was designed because they forgot to add it.
That description may not make much sense, but doesn't it look like the foot rest area is a big pocket of some sort that you put your foot in when you ride? (I have not seen a 2017-18 model in person.)

Look at my 2013 model in contrast.
