Hey Hey Hey
on: September 24, 2020, 12:36:45 AM
Hello everybody! I'm a perspective CB500X owner. I'm currently on a shadow and am really looking to move into the sport touring/ adventure world. I've been doing a fair bit of research and am actively looking for the right deal. I'm hoping to document my adventures with the bike once I get it and spread the good news of the Honda CB500x. I've yet to ride one but have sat on a 2018 and it was plenty comfortable in that position. It appears that they are pretty scarce in this particular part of the country but a trip into Florida will help with that.
I look forward to getting know more of you.

Welcome. I know you sat on a 2018, but are you looking at pre- or post-2019 models for yourself?

Harry, I'm looking at both. If I get a pre 2019 I am looking for a deal that gives me room to add the RR kit. If I get a 2019 I'm still going to add the kit but it will be less of a priority. I know they did more than just the height and wheel diameter change in 2019 but I can live with the small differences if it gets me riding sooner.

Welcome.  I got a leftover 2018 and love it.  Look for a deal if you can find one.  The riding position will be a game changer that I think you'll enjoy.

I'm watching the classifieds and saving my nickels. I am going to find one at a dealership here soon and see about a test ride. I am certainly excited for the change to a more upright riding position and flexibility.
