Itchy Boots and the CB500X
on: July 04, 2020, 03:24:54 AM
I have been following a You Tube channel ; Itchy Boots .

A young dutch woman who made her bones on a   Royal Enfield Hymalayn  starting in India all the way back to the NL. ( interesting lesson learned about ownership and importation of her motorcycle)

Then she was off to Ushuia with the goal of riding another RE Hymalayan to Alaska. (Ownership solved, registration solved, importation solved)
Covid put that trip on hold , with her bike stuck in Peru.

She has been hanging around her home for a bit now and decided to buy a used CB500X ,
and show us some of Europe.
The woman has the best attitude about life I have seen in a long time. Check her channel out  :062:
Faster,faster,faster , until the thrill of speed overcomes the fear of death.

She has a number of fans on this site, and it is fun to see her get a 2015 CB500X for her upcoming trip. She even opened it up a bit on her ride home!

I would say that, but then I'd be accused of being a dirty old man  :164:
I am curious about that blue thing on her nose, is that some kind of a jewelry thing she picked up in India ??
( I hope that does not offend anyone )

On another motorcycle forum, I know of one guy who definitely bought his Himalayan based on her videos. So I kinda think you're right about it driving up demand--if only a little bit--for the CB500X. Presuming she didn't buy a lemon, that is.

Her reaction to the power of the CB500X compared with the Himalayans she's been riding was interesting. She's been a favorite channel of mine for the last year, and this takes it to another level.

The only thing that would make it better would be if her YouTube comments weren't tainted by a bunch of creepy old pervs...

I've been watching her from the start, I think I have a real crush on her  :001: Before buying my CB500x I took a couple of test rides on the Himalayan, nice bike but just too under powered for me.
