I'M BACK!!!!
« on: July 28, 2019, 09:14:17 AM »
Gosh, I missed you guys and gals! I said my goodbyes as wayward deer hit me and my '17 CB500x and totaled it. At that time I bought a Honda VFR800D. Great bike but no CB500X. Well, last week I bought a left over '18 CB500X (keeping the VFR). Aw, it was like I never left! Different color same great bike! Now let the money flow to put the new farkels on it to be mine.....

Bwahahah. Exactly! I got 101 indicated once on downhill fully in it. I think the speedo was optimistic. Hit 91mph the other day (GPS reading) and with my TKC80s and a strong crosswind the bike began what might have been a nasty tankslapper. Backed down to 80mph and bike was much more stable. Note to self, keep it slow on knobbies.

Welcome back to the family. I'm constantly impressed with this little bike. 2 weeks touring in Guatemala this month and I'm happy that I went with this machine as my touring rig. (ok...a few more ponies would be nice, but hey, that MPG is lovely.)
