Hello From Eastern NC
« on: May 18, 2019, 08:27:49 PM »
I'm a old guy riding out of Eastern NC that loves to spend my days on two wheels. I currently have a 2018 Kawasaki Versys 1000LT and a 2008 Suzuki Vstrom DL650. How many miles under my belt? How many years riding? Who cares... :001:  Let's just say, I'm an enthusiast.

I got the CB500X bug a while ago as I was considering options for replacing my 2008 Vstrom. The Vstrom is a great machine (had 3 and over 200k on them combined) but my current one is getting long in the tooth. From everything I see and read the CB500X (with the Rally Raid 2 build) is exactly what I'm looking for. I actually rode a used 13 today - love the thing. That will be the subject of my next post.

Glad to be here, hope to be a contributor as well as consumer.

Cheers

Found the same thing, going from a Strom to the 500X. It doesn't have the power, obviously, but it makes up for it in feeling like a bike that's twice as agile (so you feel like a hero riding it, of course  :008:)

The RR kit is something else. I have the L1 (soon to be L2) and really enjoy it. Also a note, RRP is currently running a 10% discount until the end of the month on everything. I've seen them run 10% on Black Friday but their sales are few and far between. If you're itching to get a Rally Raid kit keep that in mind.

Thank you everyone..  I hope to pick up a 2015 next week and get my Rally Raid order in before the end of the month.
Let the fun begin..
