New member/owner in Ohio
« on: December 22, 2018, 10:55:01 PM »
Hi All. I bought a 2013 CB500X with 8800 miles on the odometer today. My previous bikes have been KLR650, Versys (wish I would have kept that one), Super Tenere (hated it, with passion), Vstrom 650 and a Z125 (still have it). 90% of my riding is on the twisty stuff with the occasional unpaved road. Looking forward to making this bike my own and seeing how it compares to previously owned bikes.

Congrats on the new bike. Lots of good information about the 500X here, and friendly knowledgeable people.

Welcome. Would love to hear more comparisons for each of those bikes to you're new X. Nothing wrong with a 2013. A very good year for all of us.

I reckon you'll find the X pretty flickable, but you may miss some of the 'stroms power. Very easy bike to live with though.... :028:
