    Ive been a member for a few weeks now and I havent taken the time to introduce myself, I bought a 78 cx500 a couple of monthes ago so I would have something to ride with my wife; she bought an 06 sportster and started making noises about wanting to go places, but didnt want to go by herself.I bought a cx because it is known to be a respectable light tourer, yet shows its self well when the road starts to get twisty. Im in the process of dealing with its known short comings, and a few other things. Im am very impressed with this forum, and look foward to participating more in the future.

    Welcome from another newbie. Where are you? Most people are looking for other owners / riders in their area? If you're not from Minnesota, you could always move here....
