Welcome to the forum and welcome back to riding! Lots of people choose the CB500X to make their return after decades away and most have not regretted it.
Ride safe,

You must have gotten the same letter I did, "After 30 years it's time to get a CB500X". Welcome to the forum, glad to have you. cheers, T

I compared several bikes by dealer location, maintenance cost and ease of service etc. A big factor in my final decision was poring over the various forums for knowledgable folks that have already addressed issues I hadn't even dreamed about, like changing oil.

Yes, but what a difference 30 years make, sweet frugal motor, tyres that GRIP, brakes that STOP and not too quickly with ABS.

Life is good now.

Welcome to the forum, back to motorcycles and to CB500X ownership!  Sounds like 3 for 3 to me!
