Hello from Texas
on: July 03, 2020, 04:32:04 PM
Iíve had my CB500X about two years.  Love the bike.  Traded in a 2012 V-Strom 650.  Needed a smaller bike (not getting any younger and my legs refuse to get any longer).  Miss the passing power but overall the CB is great.  Most of my riding is on small twisty country roads, of which the Texas Hill Country has plenty.  Plus, I can ride all year (altho this time of year I make sure Iím home by noon).

Hi - there are quite a few of us who have downsized to the 500X, and it worked out well!!   :152:

Welcome MotoGreggo!

I live in NE Texas but I have three kids living around Austin.  My oldest son got me back on a bike, '14 X, about a year and a half ago.  Since then I have logged about 16K miles on it all over the country, including a few days in the Hill Country.  This is the "Dream Bike" of my youth; I love it!  A few weeks ago, my youngest son bought a slightly used '14 X and has been riding nearly every day since!

I plan to ride the Hill Country with them quite a bit more when the temps get back below "slow-bake".  I bet we'll cross paths more than once in the future!  Welcome to the forum!

2018: '14 CB500X, The dream bike of my youth!  Thanks, Son
