Hello everyone, So here's my dilemma: I ordered a Honda CB500x ABS model back in May. Just spoke to my dealer and the non-ABS bikes (4 of them) are going to be delivered next Friday and available for pick up the following week. The ABS model that I have on order will not be arriving until August. The $500 price difference between the 2 models is a non-issue (we make plenty of $$$). I'm more concerned with the safety factor; just had my first child, so I have a lot more to lose these days. For what it's worth: I'm 37 and my days of riding fast and recklessly are over. I commute 10 miles to and from work each day and enjoy touring around New England in a controlled manner. I have never had a bike with ABS bike or locked the rear wheel up for that matter. So... Is the ABS model worth the wait? Saving $500 is always nice, but having the bike you've been drooling over 1 month earlier (I'm a teacher, so I get 2 months off to really ride) is even nicer. Then again, if ABS makes the bike that much safer, I have a wife and son to think about nowadays, so the wait, as agonizing as it may be, might be the best option. Thoughts & feedback are greatly appreciated!
