Hi.

Quick story. I rode a lot of bikes when I was a teenager and into my early 20's. Mostly off road. Bikes, quads, trikes, etc.

I gave up my bikes when I moved from the country to the city in my 20's and began riding Mountain bikes. pretty aggressively.

I'm closing in on 50 and after a collection of injuries have ended my bicycling days, I've decided to get back on a motorcycle.   I took a course, got my licence and spent last summer driving around on my brothers Honda Shadow 1100.
it's a nice bike but I didn't really find it fit the kind of riding I was looking for.

I wanted a more upright ADV style bike, but light and nimble..... obviously, I chose the CB500x after some test drives last summer.

My original plan was to grab up a 2017 or a 2018 on discount this winter..I found a nice price on a 2018 at my local dealer....but then I saw the 2019..... Now I can't wait to get one!!!!

I've contacted my local dealer to make sure one of them is ready for my first ride in the spring.Jjust waiting to learn the details when Honda Canada finally gets him the pricing and delivery info.


So I figured it was time to quit lurking and join up.


Hi everyone!
Go Jets Go!!!

Welcome to the forum. Sounds like the 19 model is worth holding out for. It's a great time to be motorcycling.  :821:

Welcome. Your story is so similar to many others here. That includes a hard look at the 2019 X. Not quite there yet, myself, and will hold on to my 2014.

Let us know when you bring it home.

Great choice the 2019. I must admit that I really wanted that my self, but to expensive sadly. Most of all I liked the new display on the 2019 model, very nice and the old one has a display that is not much better than the one I had on my V-strom from 2005! 19 inch upfront also will be good for off-road I guess, but not very important to me, but looks better of course;)
