Cheers from Washington State and the Inland Northwest
on: September 11, 2020, 11:03:13 PM
Hello everyone, long-time lurker here finally introducing myself--Marc from WA. Retired my Triumph Bonneville and then purchased a 2019 Honda CB500x two weeks before the pandemic blew up and quarantine settled in on us all. Love the upright ergos of this machine... I'm 6'5" but I still have plenty of legroom and even some leeway front to back to stretch out on long rides. Chose the 500x because I wanted to learn to ride a little bit more off the beaten path--nothing too gnarly and no round-the-world trips for me (yet), but forest service and logging roads are everywhere in my neck of the woods, and I've already enjoyed exploring them on a whim all too often.

Thanks for the add to the forum so long ago, and keep all the great discussions, tips and insights coming.

Cheers all. Ride safe.

Welcome. I'm in West Seattle, just finished upgrading my 2018 to a Rally Raid Level 2. Maybe I'll see you out there once the smoke clears.

Oh hi Mark! Welcome to the club, I'm up in Bellingham with a full RR kit trying to find more time to explore the Mt. Baker area.

Hello Marc, from Lake Stevens WA.  I bought a 2019 in May and really enjoy this bike.  If you plan to take yours off-road, get some crash bars. I like the Honda factory bars.  See my May 17 post in the Accessories section for more details.
