New Old Guy from Oregon
on: September 13, 2020, 05:54:20 PM
Greetings fellow miscreants.  Purchased a lightly used 2019 CB500x a few months back as a replacement for a much loved Super Tenere' that has carried my from Baja to Alaska and beyond. As I have aged I realized a behemoth "dual sport" bike is not in my best interest in terms of long term survival.  Have to admit I was pretty skeptical of CBX initially but it has proven to be far more than the sum of it's parts and I am very pleasantly surprised by it's capabilities.  Farkles are flowing from around the globe and it is slowly becoming my new partner in crime.

Welcome from Lake Stevens WA. What part of OR is home for you?

I also have a 2019. See my posts from May & June describing crash bar installation and outlet / heated grip installation if you have interest in these farkles.
