About to be new owner from Quartz Hill, CA
« on: October 13, 2014, 07:37:43 PM »
Hello. I am going to put the money down this upcoming weekend on a CB500X. Very stoked. I started on a Yamaha YZF750R back in 2003, then I had a Ninja 500R. I have one question that has been bugging me a ton. ABS or no ABS. I will be using this bike for 95% freeway commuting as I have a 50 mile one way commute. yup, that's 100+ miles a day. I will probably never take it off the pavement. I have not decided on commuting in the rain yet. I haven't ridden in four years so I want to ease into that decision.

(I have searched and pretty much found my answer. I jumped the gun posting first.  :157: I will be requesting a bike with ABS and probably heated grips. Any other add-ons for a commuter bike anyone can suggest?)

BTW, I am glad I found this forum, with the Ninja, I know the EX500 forum was an amazing community.  :821:

Welcome to the forum and your new X, I'm sure you'll love both.
If I can help somebody as I go along, then my living has not been in vain.

Welcome and congrats on your new bike. Have fun with it. Hopefully the forum will be as helpfull to you as it is to lot's of us.
As far as add-on, you should dfinitively consider a center stand and top case, soft or hard side cases. Which ever you like most. Tons of opinions on the forum  :082:
