What do you find gives you the best hi-way protection?
It's important to know how tall you are.

Hi guys and gals.
Dan from New England here. ie NEDan, I've just picked up a 2017 500x the other day. I have been admiring them since their introduction and finally did it after getting a decent trade in amount for my 1990 PC800 that became just too dam heavy. Or am I getting old and weak. Either way they gave me $2k for it. I know, I know, I could have sold it outright for more butt.
This might be interesting to some,
This 500x is very similar to my 06 Ducati Multistrada 600 but, surprisingly, in many ways better.
The seat is more comfortable and it doesn't slide you into the tank,
the ride is more civilized,
mpg is better,
tank is larger,
I could go on but Most important it really is just as much fun to ride and you do ride it the same way.
True, it is not as sexy as the Duc. It does not have a gorgeous dual under seat exhaust,
and, everyone isn't asking me "how fast does it go?"
I was often asked "aren't those really expensive?"
I think I pd a bit over $6k and it was easy to spend another $3k !
I really like this bike better. I think I actually paid the same amount for them?

I'm so glad this forum is here and having been a motorcycle mechanic for years I will post replies whenever I feel I can be of help.

The PC was a near flawless bike just too heavy for my small 157lb frame. I have owned over 30 motorcycles over the years.
This bike is my new BFF my other BFF is a 1983 VT500FT.
