computers and internet are not the most commen ways for me to communicate
but i am learning :)
the reason i am here is a sort of strange story
but sinds i am new and suppose to introduce myself
i better tell it a bit
my girlfrend has a strange habbit
when she sees something she things it looks cute .... she buys it
it sounds like a mens dream
but when your the men and need to fix the shit up she buys
believe me you think different
but she had a neighber who was arround 80
and could not drive any more his cx
he and my girl frend came to talk
the and result was
i had a phone call from a verry happy girlfrend
it went like this
she: honey is a cx 500 a good motorcycle ?
me: euhm yes i think so way ?
she: well i just bought a compleet black honda cx 500 from my neighber old frits
me: euhm yes
she: well i got it for 200 bucks if i take care of it and he will give it a full service before i get it
me: honey i have qwestion where only going for thre months now but do you have a lincense to drive a motorcycle
she: no but it looks so cute
well people that was three years ago
i still have the girlfrend and motorcycle
but some stupid young greenhorn with a vw golf went straitgh threu a red light and hit me straight on
yes it hurt yes i felt verry sorry
but sinds a few monhts i am bringin back the black mule ( its cx his name )
and to be honest i need some help
so after some looking on this computer
i came here

Welcome to the forum. Please add your location and your bike's model and model year (NOT year first registered if that's what the paperwork shows) to your profile so that you don't have to remember to tell us every time and we don't have to keep asking when you forget (see Forum Settings link in my signature).

And (retroactive to when you got the bike) welcome to the world of antique vehicle ownership (they own us, not the other way around). Your bike is about 4 decades old and crash damage aside may or may not have had all of the maintenance necessary to keep it safe & reliable so it is highly recommended to download the Factory Shop Manual for your model (available through the CX Wiki - link in my signature) and go through all of the service procedures, regardless of whether your bike has reached the specified mileage.
I also recommend looking on all rubber parts with suspicion because rubber does not age gracefully. Check the date codes on your tires and replace them if they are over 5 years old no matter how good they look & feel (old rubber simply cannot flow around the irregularities in the asphalt well enough to grip, especially if it is cool or wet). If your bike still has the original rubber brake line(s) (should be replaced every 2 or 3 fluid changes = 5 or 6 years) I recommend shopping for modern stainless braided ones (they last practically forever and double the life of the fluid). And don't forget things like the rad hoses and the boot between the engine and swingarm (they can crack on the bottom where you don't see it).
