Meet Katie
on: February 08, 2020, 06:05:54 PM
I bought the replacement for my CRF250L today  :018:


This is Katie (Registration starts KT)




She's a 2020 Honda CB500X. I bought her 8 days old with 114 miles on the clock  :305: I wanted a white one but this was a great deal.

Bloke had chronic back pain and couldn't ride her so now she's mine   :001:
I've had a quick ride on her and am a happy man  :300:

Mods fitted by the dealer are


Center stand
Oxford heated grips wired in so that they turn off with the key
12V socket



I intend to fit

Barkbusters
Exhaust can
Some sort of rack
Maybe engine bars or a light bar
And a variety of assorted guff 

Nice to finally have the bike I've been searching for for the last 3 months

Congratulations!!  Iíve read a lot of your posts so know youíve been considering and shopping this bike for quite a while.  And you're the first member Iím aware of with a model year 2020!

Sharp bike (I love the red!) with some very desirable options already included. May it serve you well!
