Starting 2019 with Low Mileage 2015
« on: January 01, 2019, 04:58:39 PM »
Happy New Year everyone. Thanks in advance for all the learning I'll gain as I look to venture further from home and solo-camp minimalist style. I rode a 550Four way back in the last century, then "re-entered" with a  CBR250R last summer as my son came of age and started riding. He's a street sport biker, but I'm drawn to the boonies. I sought out the 500X, researching along with the VStrom 650. I hope to learn the right gear to buy in the right priorities, beginning with soft bags for local camping . With no more than I spent on a bike with only 2.5K miles, I don't rule out upgrading with Rally Raid. That's what caught my attention with this machine. This first season I'll be keeping it very tame off road 'till I get it better protected.

Well come to the forum. You've come to the right place for 500X everything. I think you made the right choice. I went from a 650 Strom to the 500X. Very happy with my decision.

2,500 miles on a 2015? It's barely run-in!

Congratulations! The X really is a great bije, even if we're all a tad biased. 🤣

I'm sure that you'll love it. If you don't, you'll be a rare breed of cat.

Happy miles. 👊
