G'day from Country Victoria, Australia!
on: January 10, 2021, 08:06:31 AM
G'day

I'm a complete newbie to 2 wheels and CB500X's!

Was recommended a CB500X by bro in law. Bought a lovely 2013, 1 owner, beauty with a few extras thrown in.

Rode it home 2 hours, through a storm, at night. The next day missed a kangaroo by inches @ 90kph. A few days later, nearly dropped it staring at a large blue-tongued lizard in the road and passed the final stage of my license 2 days ago.

There are more gravel roads than tarmac ones around where I live, so looking forward to lots of summer adventures ahead.

What could possibly go wrong?

Hi & Welcome  :152:

Happy for you passing the final hurdle of your test . . . and for missing all the potential road kill you mentioned, even though it wasn't, at the time, road kill  :007:

Kepp it rubber side down.
