Hullo from North Wales
« on: November 14, 2018, 08:39:23 PM »
Hi all, new member & recent CB500x convert based in sunny Snowdonia. Looking forward to picking the collective brains to fettle this funny wee bike into a faithful travelling companion!
Cheers!  :821:

No need it came out of the factory perfect for Snowdonia.

OK, maybe some heated grips and luggage.
Engine bars are sensible.
A gear indicator is nice.
DRL can prolong your life.

Nice area for biking (and hiking).
I hope to be in Snowdonia on Sunday afternoon as I'm trying to get in a last road trip for '18 with a trot up Snowdon on Monday am from Pen-y-Pass. Looks like it's going to be a bit fresh.

Hello, and welcome.  I've had my CB500X for a couple of months.  I'm originally from N Wales, although not as far in as you.

I took it over to Barmouth (from Leeds) a couple of weekends ago and had a lovely ride.  There were all kinds of weather, from dangerously high winds on the M62, through a pea-souper around Corwen and heavy rain past Bala.   All was fine with the bike.  I do like the Oxford heated grips and Barkbusters I've put on it to keep my hands happy.

It's the first bike I've had bigger than a 125 but I'm planning on keeping it.
