Hi CX500 Friends!

I'm currently on a year leave enjoying a 9-10 month motorcycle tour on my 1981 CX500.

I've completed the first leg of the tour, which began in Ottawa ON up to the Yukon and back down to Victoria BC; riding for just over 7,500 miles.

The next couple months will be spent zig zagging on the west coast, through Washington, Oregon, California and Arizona. If you have favourite rides (single day or multiple days) let me know what they are. If you wanna meet up and do some of those rides or are able/willing to let me pitch my tent email here - [email protected] .

First couple months have been a dream and I'm really excited to dip down in the US.

Have a good day and a great ride!

Awesome trip! You should ride around the Olympic Peninsula and up to Hurricane ridge on your way down the coast..
If you end up going down that way I may ride out and say hello.

A picture is worth a thousand words. And when in the US, they are worth 1.29 times more! Are you able to post some pics of your adventure?

Are you traveling solo? One bike or two if dual? Or more? Just curious. Who sez you can't tour on a CX500, eh? Happy riding, sounds like your head is screwed on exactly right! Memories for a lifetime.

You are welcome to stop in Wisconsin on your way home. Send me a PM if you are interested. I could probably send you home with a lot of extra parts if you have room on your bike.

Well, did you make it to/through the Seattle area? I would have offered you a place to stay but was out of town 10th -13th.
Good luck on the rest of you adventure!
