Hi from France
« on: May 19, 2019, 10:23:01 AM »
Hello everyone !

I'm new to this forum, I am a 32 years old teacher from Lille, in France. I bought a 2018 cb500x last year, very pleased with the bike since then. It's my first bike, I got my license in february 2018, so I'm still kind of a new rider. I already found a lot of useful tips and informations about the bike here, everyone looks great ! :821:

See you around !  :152:

Welcome to the club.   France is such a great country to ride in.
Having fun with a CB500XA with Rally Raid Level 3 upgrade.

 :400: to the forum - I'm currently enjoying exploring back-roads south of Toulouse - some fantastic scenery and the weather is way warmer than my home in the north of England  :152:

Living in the north of France, I know what you mean about the weather, we are seen as one of the rainiest part of France, even if it must be worst in the north of England ! Enjoy the south ! :001:

I commute from monday to friday, and by the weekend when the weather is nice, I like to ride in French Flanders, especially Dunkirk. It's not the prettiest town in France, but riding near the sea is so invigorative ! I intend to make a much longer trip next year, to the Netherlands and above. I'm slowly getting prepared.

Rides, especially long ones, are therapeutic!
