CB500x vs. my old F650GS
« on: October 14, 2013, 08:30:52 PM »
greeting from holy land  :821:

took a CB500x on a test drive today, and ended up buying one (red!).
I'm riding an old (2003) BMW F650GS for quite some time now.
in general i really like my old GS, but lately i spent too much time and $$$  fixing it.

the CB felt much more "alive" - while the GS felt "lazy".
CB fun factor is 3 times better then the bimmers,
its a lot more agile and fast responding.
inside the city it moves almost like a small scooter.

anyway i loved it and looking forward to pick it up next week.

Safe rides.

glad you like it. (i also have a red) do you miss the suspension on the   GS and out of interest, did you have the dakar GS?

don't miss the suspension too much (i accualy liked the CB suspension, especially in the city).
i had the regular GS (not dakar).

one thing i will miss is the trails ride - the CB is 100% road bike.

I didnt realise you were in israel. There is so much off road riding no wonder you will miss it.  Hope you have many happy miles on the cb. My bro made aliyah about 5 years ago. Riding through th negev on the motorbike must be great!
