Hi Eddie,

Riding in UK would depend on location. Once you’re in the north (ie. Durham backroads, Northumberland, Scotland, Scottish highlands & islands), then you can find isolation and empty roads/tracks. Yes, I am pleasantly surprised at how economical the CB500X is, regardless of how it’s ridden. I’ve attached a couple of photo’s – the other bike in the garage is my 1986 BMW R65.
Oh, I also made a screen extension to eradicate buffet and noise – reasonably easy with a good heat gun and 3mm clear perspex offcut.
