New Guy from Massachusetts
on: June 04, 2020, 01:17:17 PM
Love these forums.  Just purchased a 2014 and am very excited about doing some distance riding on it.  Sold my 1990 BMW K75 because I was tired of filling up every 150-160 miles.  Did tons of research and this seems like the bike for me.
Already noticed steering bearings are loose and too much play in throttle cable.  Can't wait to get to work.
Thanks for everyone's input here...really helps.

Welcome to the forum. It's funny that I left Massachusetts for California two years ago selling my '92 K75S and getting a new CB500x here not long after I arrived. The BMW was a great bike but it was getting cranky in its old age. The Honda is slower and vibrates more but it can go places the BMW couldn't and feels lighter than it is.
Have fun on the 500x. -Joe
