Been a Vespa guy for years. Now can I hang witchas?! ( just being sarcastic. Everyone is super cool here!)

Recently acquired, put a whole 28 miles on it so far. It's a "used" 2015 Honda CB 500 F! Bought with a 1575 miles on it. My first sport bike. I could really use some insight on the mod scene.

Depends on what you want to do with it. If you're looking to go fast in the twisties, best money spent is on tires and trackdays.

Hey gang- Finally had a day off to log another 40 or so miles and to snap a few pics of the bike...

It’s got a couple bells and whistles the previous owner added before trading it in for a BMW 1200F (which I was also looking at). Still looking stuff up as I notice them, but here's a couple things I tracked down:

Givi rack mount & top case (obvious)

GiPro gear indicator

Some type of throttle lock

Battery Tender pigtail

Puig clear windscreen

SW-Motech crashbars

PIAA led lights

Some type of adjustable clutch/brake levers


I thought it odd that with all of these mods it's still running a stock exhaust and rear fender, my first order of business! Still learning about the CB line in general- Feel free to share your wisdom about this bike or anything else related!

Built this 08 Royal Enfield Bullet last spring and rode it for most of the summer until I bought these two...

Bought the 16 CB300F new and picked up a used 13 Grom that's I've been slowly modifying.

I think the next bike will be some sort of bobber. I haven't built anything from scratch lately, cars or bikes.
