BTW, n+1 comes from a bicycling website. Rule 12 seems to apply to motorcycles as well: "While the minimum number of bikes one should own is three, the correct number is n+1, where n is the number of bikes currently owned. This equation may also be re-written as s-1, where s is the number of bikes owned that would result in separation from your partner."

Nice looking bike. After selling a v Strom and a KLR in the past 2 years, the cb500x is definitely on my radar. I'm hoping to find a used one next year if the prices have returned to a sane level.
How is the power delivery? As expected for a 500 cc twin?

Is she teasing you with her red panty straps?
That's where I put my helmet. :eek:

With little experience with other bikes, I'm not the best to ask. It certainly got up and moved, much better than the TW. Even 100 pounds heavier, it handled more nimbly, probably due to lighter wheels. just picked it up yesterday, and the three and a half hour drive home from the dealer(!) was half in the dark, and I kept my speed fairly slow due to the deer threat.

A little tidbit for you, Sir:
"...and the three and a half hour drive home..."
You drive cattle & automobiles.
You ride horses & motorcycles.
It's a fact! You can look it up...

Tuesday was warm enough to ride the CB500X 15 miles to the storage locker for the winter. Topped up the tank with ethanol-free gas & stabilizer along the way. Sigh.

Here's a few pics from this fall's camping trip:

Thanks to favor-of-the-day health directives, restaurant dining rooms were closed, leaving only drive-thru lanes open. Nice 50°, gusty picnic.
