Hello from Western NC
on: May 25, 2020, 06:17:21 PM
Hello Xers... I live in riding heaven (WNC), often travel to riding heaven (EU) and have two heavenly bikes: 2013 and 2019 500X.

Should have posted here first, but I posted a video in the Ride Reports forum instead.

https://www.cb500x.com/index.php/topic,9669.0.html

My 50+ year riding career started with a Honda Cub, a CL100 and a Kawasaki Trail Boss... then graduated to European MX and Enduro bikes. In 1973 I attended the International Six Day Trials in Dalton, MA. There I saw three factory BMW dirt bikes and it was all over for me. I've been a BMW dual-sporter ever since. I also ride a 1986 R80 G/SPD, a 2000 R1150 GS and a 2007 Xchallenge. I just sold an HP2 Enduro, and I also have a 2014 Grom and a 1967 CT90.

But I wanted to try a smaller bike, saw the 500X coming up in the industry, and decided to buy a 2013 X and ship it to Europe for tours. It is stored with Stefan Knopf of KnopfTours in Heidelberg, who I highly recommend.

So, I am not much of an Xpert, but appreciate the knowledge that's here.

Great to meet you,

Ian
