Hello from Washington State
on: December 04, 2013, 06:09:13 AM
Another 55 year old who decided to take up motorcycle riding. Took the safety class, got the license and after a lot of asking around and doing my own research I bought the 500XA (only black was available). As a newbie I am very comfortable with this bike. I can put both feet on the ground, it isn't too heavy, and the hp is more than enough for local hilly roads. I have put  900 miles on so far (mostly local to get my skills up). I bought it with heated grips (very nice starting from last month) and installed the center stand myself. Next on the list will be panniers.
