    Everyone I knew who’s has rode it told me the same thing. I was very underwhelmed with it though!

    Different strokes for different folks.

    It's definitely NOT an "exciting" ride... but it can be a really enjoyable one. I live a few miles away though, so it's an easy choice.

    In the prairies, when you do a 700 kms day trip just to see water. You damn sure take a picture of it. 20190824_121429.jpg

    To pride myself on tire of choice...
    That front is 2 years old, has almost 20,000 kms on it and looks like new still.
    Kenda Big Block 130/80. For me it's the only tire from now on up front, thought I'd share the love.

    Took the bike for a spin around the country with the wife. Handles like a charm.

    I’m just back from several days riding the back roads of the Central and Southern California coast. This is on day 1 on Hudson Ranch Rd west of Frazier Park heading down to the Carrizo Plain.

    Took the CB over to the continent this weekend, to pop my TET cherry. Just Calais up to Ypres, and back down.
    The little bit I did was quite enjoyable, and for the most part not particularly challenging, though deep wet grass and 'tramline' sections could get interesting.
    Weather didn't help, short downpours had me diving for bus shelters a couple of times. But not enough rain to soften the tracks and make them slippery.
    Will definitely go back over for an extended TET trip.

    I've been so busy at work these days I haven't gotten out on the CB500x much so it was nice to get out tonight. Did a little oil field access road exploration.

    If you zoom in there are two mule deer in the field near the horizon in the center of the photo. As usual they stayed close till I stopped and then took off before I could get a picture.

    In between the two photos the bike took a nap. I didn't think to take picture so this is all the evidence I've got.

    I really need to get some proper rubber on her if I mean to ride where I want to.
