Hi, Just to introduce as a new member. I have just purchased a 2016 CB500x. Already fitted a gear indicator as not so used to close ratio boxes after many years on old Triumphs. It certainly is helping as I get used to it. Chose this particular model as I have moved from heavy older  bikes to something lighter and more upright in riding position due to health issues.  It also suits the very poor roads over here in Norfolk !

My riding position got more upright today by fitting handlebar risers- much better!

 :400:    Sparkmark,

I am fairly new too and this has been a very helpful forum for me already, it's a good community.

Enjoy your new ride.

Jon
