Hey from Enderby, Canada
« on: August 03, 2018, 09:48:25 PM »
Hey all.

Just bought a used 2017 CB500X a few weeks ago and it's amazing!
I live in a small town called Enderby in British Columbia, Canada and commute 160km per day for work (except for the winter/snow season).
My place is a few kms up a dirt road, but the majority of the ride is highway with some twisty bits.
The CB just makes the ride real fun!

My previous bike was a Suzuki M90 so it's a big change moving to the CB.
I'm enjoying the new seating position and the bike being 300lbs lighter makes a huge difference for cornering, braking, etc.
I wont miss backing the old M90's 720lbs into the garage!
I'm impressed how the CB handles the dirt roads I've ridden so far - very stable.

Looking forward to making a few changes to suit my longish rides.
Been learning from previous forum posts and wanted to thank everyone for the ton of information that's there.
It's going to help me a bunch with what I plan to do to make the bike fit the commute even better.

See you all out in the forum!  :306:

Just over a few mountains away in Vernon B.C., got a 2017 too. Great bike, light , agile and just sips gas.
If you are not living on the edge, you are taking up too much room.

Hi OKGerry. 
Good to know there's some local cb riders here!   :821:
Vernon's a great place - I used to live up near Silver Star years back. If only I had the light cb back then to ride up Silver Star Rd!
