27 new to motorcycles
« on: November 02, 2017, 06:42:33 PM »
Hey everyone, I just bought a 2014 cb500x, and I love it so far. This is my first bike, and just passed my endorsement stuff. I'm excited to see where this bike and I will go! I'll continue to read through the forums l, learning, and gaining knowledge.

Welcome, matey. I'm glad that you've started early - I didn't start riding until I bought my X in my 40s, and I'm absolutely converted - I hardly ever drive my car these days!  :821:

Thanks everyone! I wanted to get something that was good on fuel mileage since my DD was taking about 20 MPG on a good tank. Haha
It seems I've found the perfect mixture of sport, functionality, and (for the most part) comfort. The original owner changed up the suspension already to a rally raid stage 1 front and a GSXR 600 on the rear, went completely aftermarket with the windshield, as far as to cut the metal brackets off of the bike.. I'm wanting to revert that to either stock, or just remove it all together.
