There are so few comments or stories about actually riding these bikes that I sometimes think Connecticut, USA is the only place they are actually taken out on the street? Put down the wrenches, point the beast down the road and tell us about it! I try to ride around my area for fun and errands 3-4 times a week, did an 800+ mile ride with Bill thru out New England states last month, and did a lunch ride with Bro Dave/CX 650E and Dave L/‘79 CX500 Deluxe and my ‘80 CX500 Deluxe. It’s autumn here and for me, riding the leaf sprinkled back roads watching the leaves in my mirrors swirl up behind me is pure ecstasy! I’m still riding on my “temporary” motor and with a rust hole in the bottom of the H-box, it clearly announces it’s intention to stay in the lead 👍. I figure I got all winter to wrench on it!
