Years and years ago I bought an absolutely mint Honda CX500 in parts for my girlfriend. In absolutely mint condition, only 23000 km’s, and being one of the very first CX500′s ever to be produced my girlfriend didn’t want me to deviate too much from what a stock CX500 looks like. The result is a bike that is not very spectacular, but very pleasant to ride.
Due to the horrid weather and the HORRID university (she is doing the same study and is having the same problems with the lack off common decency and interest of the staff) the CX has not seen any daylight yet this year, until yesterday.
I took it out of the shed, replaced the oil, checked everything and we went for a ride. A very enjoyable way to relax.
