Most motorcycle problems are caused by the nut that connects the handlebars to the saddle.

Just registered and wanted to introduce myself.

Currently very new to CB500's, well bikes in general. I am looking to get started with a CB500 for my daily commute so I can leave my van at home. Every one of my friends in the know have suggested that a CB500 is the way to start. Looking to get on to a Direct Access course in the new year.

Been looking around in my local(ish) area, but they seem a bit thin on the ground? I am based in Essex, and only a couple up within around 40 miles, all being from dealers and being priced a bit on the high side (e.g £1300 for a 1996 34K).

Am i just looking in the wrong places, or is this the wrong time of year?

Cheers,

Ed

Welcome Ed.  You're making a good choice.

Not sure if this is still available and how far you're prepared to travel.

Also keep an eye on Gumtree.  Thats where I found mine.  In my experience, decent models come up and are then gone very quickly so make sure you setup your alerts on ebay and gumtree.

Hope you get sorted.
