2018 Spain trip bike
on: June 16, 2018, 10:06:46 AM
Bike for holiday trips in Spain. Spain license and resident at my sister's place.

Very lucky and happy to have a sister and brother in law where i am always welcome, and where the CB500X feels very well at home.

First new bike for 35 years and very pleased with it;)
Dealer installed the oem 39 teeth rear sprocket at delivery.

When I feel the need for leaving everything behind in Holland, I just book the flight and drive.
And all daily issues and troubleshooting are forgotten :821:

The wife has a first try. Who knows.

Region Valencia between Alicante and Murcia (Elche) East Spain.

Bike bought just in time,the old XL500s driven for the last 2 years lost it's compression. Pitty because it did run in it's 1979 oem setup and condition.
I need to say that the difference between a 1979 bike compared to a 2018 bike is far less than I expected.
But that is a great compliment for the Honda engineers in the 70's, lots of respect for those little guy's in those years.
