Happy CB500X Owner from SoCal
on: July 30, 2020, 11:20:38 PM
Hello everyone :001: I bought a 2017 CB500X ABS yesterday and although it's my third I've ever owned it's given me a lot of "first times" already. First time ever buying from a dealership, first time owning a machine this new, and first time with ABS on a bike!

I started riding about a year ago on a 2004 Yamaha V Star 650. It was a ton of fun but after acquiring a 1985 Yamaha XT350 I found the upright position to be extremely comfortable.

 :401: to the Forum.... Don't worry about having ABS on a bike - unless you really mess up you won't know its even fitted!

Welcome to the forum and congrats on the CB500x. It's a great bike for exploring SoCal, and if you want to check out some of the lesser traveled parts (particularly in San Diego county) take a look at https://advrider.com/f/threads/socal-motography-adventures-just-monkeying-around.1239574/
He doesn't ride a 500x but in his RRs he's exposed me to roads and trails I didn't know about.

Thanks for this JoeD! I'm currently living in the high desert so I'm a nice 2 hours away from San Diego. I used to spent a lot of time there though so seeing this thread gives me a lot of nostalgia of the area.
