the end tip of the silencer is black just like your so just an illusion. plus its no longer on the bike and replaced by a 19" shorty
yeah I thought about selling it but it was just one of those days ;D I have other plans now so its good.

I wouldn't rule out the idea that maybe one day i'd try an iron barrel again in right change
the iron has a great note compared to the UCE. I actually had a right gear change iron roughly 7 years back and almost crashed it twice. got confused on the gearchange...lol
meanwhile ive been adding mention to my youtube videos to see if we can round up more new members. after-all we know more about the bikes...LOL

Bilgemaster - it's a little late in the game for your advice... but you're "new" here so we'll cut you some slack!  ;D

got a call late today near 4pm from the honda dealer. the cb500x has arrived in the shop and has been registered and ready to roll
id say a 10 or 11am pickup for me and then a good test ride.
no real run in period either and just stay under 5000 revs till first service.
will be interesting riding 47 hp instead of 27 ;)

Your new bike seems nicely finished and looks functional, Wildbill. But the looks of the bike's engine and its muffler doesn't do much for me. I think Honda should have blacked it out to disguise its looks and make the muffler look more traditional. I am sure that it will serve your motorcycle transportation needs. Congratulations on your new ride.

Looks good. :)

It should be utterly reliable with no niggles at all.

It will have the heart and soul of a wet mop and become a very nice, trustworthy, boring machine.  ;D 8)

It's a UJB (universal japanese bike). Not sure why it is worth column inches on an Enfield forum. I sense mission creep....

You do realize, even though they are parked close to each other, they are not speaking.

Language barrier problem + a bit of jealousy on the part of the Honda.   ;D ;D 8)

Good God Almighty, Wild Bill! Are you seriously already trying to shed that.... Please, I beg of you--before we all stage some sort of "intercontinental intervention"--Get yourself a tip-top old "iron belly." Still, the only bike I might ever cash her in for might be a Vincent Comet thoroughly gone over by my main Vincent man My-Ty.

       I can't see Wild William ever going back to an iron barrel, but be that as it may, I enjoyed riding with those guys. The guy on the orange one rides like I prefer to; right off the centerline. The other guy not so much. It gives people too much of a chance to try to pass you in your own lane. And many don't just try; they do it.

Both nice bikes! The honda looks like a mini version of the VFR1200x cross tourer.

one should never have to put up with a vibrating bike especially with a shoulder injury. so I went on a hunt and the bike bolted on me so I sold it today...LOL meanwhile I didn't like the handlebar position of the cb500x either...its gone too....LOL I am ready for another enfield
