Thanks for the welcome guys  :062:

And welcome from hilldweller.

The bike is a freak. 47hp A2 and it should be rubbish, but it exceeds all expectations. I'll bet you return from Italy planning your next trip.

Welcome from one of your old customers.  I always found you very pleasant to deal with, we have done the same as you, after riding big bikes for over fifty years we have down graded to lighter bikes because of our age, as you have found out the CB 500 is an excellent choice.  Chain oilers, the one to go for is the Cobra Nemo itís much neater and easier to fit than the Scott.

Hi old customer and thank you for the welcome  :002:
I do like the Cobbra system ( https://www.cobrra.co.uk/  if you click on the contact button and look on the left you will see how much it is liked LOL!!! ), but for various reasons I decided to go for the Scottoiler.. A bit more challenging to fit on the X but that is all part of the game for me ... Yep.. I know  :112:  !!!

You could do them a favour and tell them "works on the principle of compressing the oil" makes them look idiots.

Still kept my one off Bird that I built and maybe looking for an R6 when I get shot of the MP3 :-), but even that is down to CB5 ownership.. It has completely rejuvenated my life times love of bikes. It is fun to ride, nice to work on and cheap as a cheap thing to run..
Used to work in KL in the 70's.
When I moved to Norfolk I was a grade 1 tv engineer .. Unable to get a suitable job I applied to Bensleys for a job as an aerial rigger.. They said they did not want to employ someone but would take on a contractor.. I subbed to them for several years ............. Also was a long time member of the KL amateur radio club for much of the 80's and 90's :-)
