Hello from Apple Valley, California
« on: November 17, 2018, 01:17:55 AM »
From the edge of the Mojave desert...

Wanted one since they came out. Also a DR650 owner but wanted a street oriented bike though the DR is pretty good on the freeway as is. The Cb500x is soooooo much more comfortable, smooth and fuel efficient than the DR. Super happy with my '13 with the 500 or so miles I put on it so far ( has 18k from PO).

Though others may disagree, i dont feel this streetbike based bike just isn't an offroad bike. Offroad is what plated dirt bikes are for, and will replace the heavy DR in time. I think the X will stay for a long while.

Me, Im 54 yrs 6 feet and been riding, geez 41 years already! Mostly dual sports and a long stint with a Concours. In 1990 took a Suzuki GSX 400 around the eastern half of OZ with several hundred K's of tracks. A dream ride that really put the adventure in riding for me.

I prefer to travel or commute or run errands by motorcycle, life is just too short to not take opportunities to enjoy it. Travel is slower, rain is wetter, sun is warmer, life is just better on two wheels.

Welcome to the forum. Couldn't agree more about the riding ethic. I cursed the rain recently while leaving work on my bike and then slipped on my waterproofs and enjoyed the sensations and smells of riding in the rain. Life is better on two wheels.
