i'm excited to see/sit on the CB500x... why? i need a decent commuter. i have an SV650n and would like something more comfortable, more "capable" than the SV. i don't want to shell out the cash for a Wee-strom and i feel like the CB should get much better mileage to boot. for what i'll be using it for mostly, commuting and long trips, it should work perfectly fine. i don't see myself hitting too many trails yet at all, but some gravel roads and dirt roads, i feel like this bike is going to be a perfect fit.. with some hard side bags...
