Any young Cb500x owners or is it an old guys bike?
« on: September 18, 2018, 12:27:33 PM »
I remember reading a thread that wanted old guys to post their age that rode this bike. However over the months I have been on this forum it seems apparent that older guys dominate...clear from the experience stated and photos provided.  So, in my early 50s I loved this bike when I first sat on it at a dealer....fit and riding position is exactly what I wanted.  I have off handedly and sort of jokingly described my bike to friends as my " old man bike". But, maybe there is a lot of truth in that.  Or, perhaps the younger guys simply are not on this forum.

So, anyone out there with this bike between 30-40, how about 18-30? I know the " you are only as old as you feel" saying but honestly many days with some aches and pains I feel 50+.

If it is an old man's bike, I can live with that, but just curious.

I am 55, but work with a guy who is 26 and has a 2013 CB500X.  He isnt on this forum.  He is the reason I decided on this wonderful bike.

Just turned 44 today, and sold one of my 500Fs (the one I've bought for my wife but she never rode it) to a 26yo lady who has changed up from her cb125.
Funny enough, her dad is only a few years older than me, and despite he rides a GS1150, he was considering to change to an 500x after riding my "Rally Raided" X.

Well, I'm 24 and buying a new-old stock or lightly used one as soon as I can secure financing, so there's certainly a market for a do-it-all $5000 bike among us broke young'uns
