BLUE RIDGE PARKWAY
« on: September 12, 2019, 10:22:50 AM »
With only 475miles on my new '18 CB500X, I set out for the parkway. I changed the oil first (475 only) and set out! Not even broke in, the manual says 300miles it's broken in, off I went. From Cincinnati to Waynesboro (start of the Parkway) the little bike did fine. By the time I had 600 miles on it, "Kattie bar the door", I was flogging it hard, no chicken stirps on the tires, braking hard, and all the way to redline the bike never once gave me any worries at all! After all, I was trying to keep up with my son on a VFR800. 1445 miles latter, the bike never used any oil, still got about 65mpg, and was a pure joy to ride!

Great way to test out a new bike! With no lights or stop signs, the BRP is a unique ride.
