Looks like the CX500 may have to go.
So, today I went out and bought a Suzuki GS500F from ValuCycle, a used motorcycle dealer in Conyers, and rode the bike home. This new bike looks sort of like a GSXR, although it's not quite as powerful (or expensive), and it has an air-cooled two cylinder engine. This one had less than 1,400 miles on it... which is less than half the miles I've racked up on the CX500.
Overall, it looks like this bike ought to work out pretty well. It's in almost brand new condition. On a good day, the CX500 may have a shade more power, but then again, on some of the CX's bad days, it's made considerably less. And the Suzuki handles and stops much, much better. Comfort seems about equal between the two.
I'll be putting the CX500 up for sale soon... and I should have pictures of the "new" bike up tomorrow.
