Hi from Galicia (Spain)

Post by cebecero on Tue 11 Jul 2017, 9:47 pm

Hi !!

My name is Juan, i´m from Galicia region (northwest of Spain)

Since 2014 i have a Cb500 1994....and i´m very happy!!! Smile
First i have a 125cc 1984 Vespa PKS.... i sold to a friend to take my CB. I´m lucky because i can ride on it sometime Smile

I decided to get my CB because i live in a small town and the Vespa can´t make long travels. I read a lot forums and webs to make my choice, and finally the Cb500 is a fucking winner. Have power, easy to ride for beginners, strong and beauty.

I make a few changes on it (someone after read this forum):

   -A new Hagon shocks rear and the progresive springs and new oil in front. (the best investiment i think. is another bike)
   -A new handlebar (a Renthal road ultra low). I´m very happy with it.
   -A Led indicators.
   -New sparks NGK iridium
   -A USB charger for my phone and GPS


And.... no really more to said for now.... AHH, i´m preparing a 5-6 days travel in North Portugal making camping in august.... very impatient!!! Smile

PD: sorry for my english... i try my best Wink

Welcome Juan, your English is better than my Spanish.
Are you a Marq Marquez supporter?

Hola Juan y bienvenido aqui.

Mas y mas espanoles viniendo en este foro!

Su ingles es mejor que mi espanol :p (pero intento a mejorar eso).

Queria hacer una vuelta de la peninsula iberica en el futuro con un amigo, hay tantas rutas y paisajes interesantes ahi. Solo es un sueno al momento.

Hi everybody!! Smile

Is nice see this forum alive (like ours cb500)

Wheater rider, i really like the agresive style from Marquez (who really not??). And i´m glad when he wins, but i like also so much Pedrosa. Like a driver and person is really sweet and smoth, noble rider.
Valentino i hate many years, later i really like he and i wish he wins the 2015....until he crys like a capricious baby,

Hola ZekeVal !! pues esta realmente bien tu español, ojala mi ingles este a ese nivel Smile Si tienes la oportunidad de escaparte por España de ruta, no lo dudes. Yo como chico del norte que soy te aconsejaría esta zona, toda la costa norte de España (pais vasco, cantabria, asturias) y luego bagar por el oeste (galicia y portugal). La zona es preciosa, con carreteras bastante buenas y divertidas. Es bastante barato en realidad, y los paisajes y la gastronomia....un 10!! Si te animas y quieres ayuda para ver zonas y eso, escribeme sin problema.
(Yo tampoco he puesto acentos para que no te sientas mal XD)

I put photos here for sure when i finish my travel Sullivj and troubled. You will love this regions Smile

Thanks again to all of us for your words!!

Hi Juan, I lived in Santiago for a little while, great part of the world that. And that food market there was just immense. Nice to read that you are enjoying the bike as much as the rest of us. Safe travels
